Six Tips for the Best Botox Results
For patients considering Botox to smooth facial wrinkles, our Scottsdale Med Spa injectable experts offer six top tips to ensure that our patients get the best, longest-lasting results from their Botox injections.
Botox Tip #1.
Botox should only be administered by a medical professional.
Botox is a powerful muscle paralyzing neurotoxin that is injected directly into the face. So, while it is very safe in the hands of a trained medical practitioner, it is not without risks when used improperly. As a result, only a doctor or nurse with extensive expertise and training should inject Botox.
If a person gets Botox injections in a mall or a private home party, there is the potential for serious risks and complications. Breathing, swallowing, and speaking may become difficult, and some people may even suffer visual difficulties as a result of improperly injected Botox. Incorrectly applied Botox treatments may also produce unsightly muscle drooping or an asymmetrical look in the face, and/or ‘frozen’ features or strange facial expressions.
Botox injections at Tutera Medical in Scottsdale, AZ are done in a safe, sterile, medical environment by a doctor or nurse injector who is certified and skilled in the procedure – ensuring safe results and the best, most beautiful possible Botox outcomes.
Botox Tip #2.
Inform your Botox doctor or nurse injector of any medications you are currently taking.
Don’t forget that Botox is a medical treatment, so patients should inform their Botox doctor or nurse of any medicines and supplements that they are using. Remember, even popular over-the-counter medications and “natural” herbal treatments still have the potential to thin the blood. As a result, Botox patients may suffer more severe bruising as a result of injections. if they are taking a blood thinning pharmaceutical or supplement.
Depending on the medicine or supplement, it may be essential to stop taking it for a few days before your Botox injections in order to avoid severe bruising!
Botox Tip #3.
Sit very still while the doctor or nurse injects Botox.
Receiving Botox treatments for the first time is exciting! You may even be a little nervous. However, unless the doctor specifically asks that you smile or frown at a particular point, it is critical that you maintain complete stillness during the Botox treatment.
This ensures that the injections are delivered exactly where they are intended. The doctor can specifically target the correct nerves and muscle, and any bruising is also kept to a minimum.
Botox Tip #4.
Following Botox injections don’t touch your face.
It will be tempting to reach out and touch that wonderfully smooth face and feel the Botox benefits, but please refrain from doing this. It takes time for Botox to take action, and physicians warn that rubbing or kneading the injection site may actually move the Botox away from the target region, causing it to lose its effectiveness.
Facials and other kinds of skin treatments should also be avoided for at least 24 hours after Botox injections. And our Scottsdale, AZ physicians also recommend that you refrain from engaging in any physical activity that causes you to sweat (even a little) for at least 48 hours after the injection.
Botox Tip #5.
Arnica and ice can help reduce bruising after Botox injections.
Some slight bruising is expected to occur after any type of injection – including Botox. However, if a patient is prone to bruise, taking Arnica pills a few days before and after the Botox treatment may help to reduce or even avoid bruising.
Applying an ice pack to the injection site can also be beneficial to prevent post-injection swelling or bruising (but don’t apply the ice directly to the skin).
Botox Tip #6.
Follow the aftercare instructions provided by your Botox doctor.
When you choose to get Botox treatments, you are investing both time and money into the process of looking younger. So never take the chance of jeopardizing the outcomes by refusing to obey your medical professional’s aftercare orders.
For example, most Botox after-care instructions say unequivocally that patients should avoid consuming large amounts of alcohol for a few days after injections. There are a variety of reasons why this is essential: consuming alcohol can lead to dehydration and even poor judgment, which may lead to the patient inadvertently touching the injection site.
Trust the certified Botox doctor and nurses at Tutera Medical by following their instructions. Then you can sit back and enjoy the beautiful outcomes of your Botox injections!
It is also critical that you notify your Botox medical professional immediately if you see or feel something unusual in the injection area after your Botox appointment. While Botox-related problems are extremely uncommon, it is always better to be cautious than sorry – since early action may prevent a minor problem from becoming a big one.
