How to Prepare for Botox
In recent years, Botox has become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures on the market, allowing individuals a safe, non-surgical way to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. Indeed, through a simple Botox treatment, you can achieve a refreshed and youthful appearance; the injection itself may take as little as 15 minutes, and results will be evident within seven to 10 days.
If you’ve never had a Botox treatment before, you might have some questions or concerns about what the process entails. We’d love to put your mind at ease, and invite you to contact Javan Wellness whenever you want to chat.
In the meantime, here are some simple recommendations as you prepare to receive Botox.
Getting Ready for a Botox Treatment
- Make sure you’re qualified. While Botox is a safe procedure for most individuals, there are some for whom it’s not really recommended. In particular, we advise avoiding Botox if you have an infection at the injection site; if you are pregnant or nursing; if you have any health conditions that affect breathing or bleeding; or, of course, if you have a Botox allergy. If you have any reservations or want to make sure you’re a good candidate for Botox, all you need to do is contact us to make an appointment.
- Make mention of any medications you take. When scheduling your Botox treatment, make sure to let us know about any medications you are currently taking. Be sure to also discuss your current medications with your injector, just to make sure you’re not taking anything that could adversely interact with the Botox.
- Clean the injection site. You’ll want to make sure the injection site is absent any cosmetics, moisturizing products, and general dirt and debris. Before your injection, clean your skin with a gentle soap and warm water.
- Don’t stress! We’ll simply reiterate that Botox is common, safe, and non-invasive. It’s definitely nothing to feel stressed about. And, if you do have some trepidations, we’d love to set them to rest. You can reach out to us any time you’d like and we’ll walk you through the process and answer your questions you may have.
By following these tips, we think you’ll be more than ready for your Botox treatment.
