Preparing for your cosmetic procedure can help set expectations as well as help deliver optimal results. Getting ready for your BOTOX® Cosmetic injections is no different. Be sure to follow these tips to ensure you are properly prepared for your upcoming BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment.
· Avoid pain relievers, blood thinners and alcohol prior to your appointment: These substances thin the blood and can cause bruising after you receive BOTOX® Cosmetic injections. Avoid these if possible prior to your treatment. However, be sure to speak with your personal care physician prior to stopping any prescribed medications.
· Protect yourself from the sun: Sunburned skin is difficult to treat with BOTOX® Cosmetic due to damage caused by the harmful UV rays. If you can’t avoid the sun, wear sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat to protect your skin from further damage.
· Avoid skin irritants: When your skin is irritated or inflamed, it may be harder to achieve the results you desire. Activities that can irritate your skin may include waxing, bleaching, tweezing and using hair removal creams around the target areas.
· Know your medications and medical history: Keeping us informed about your medical history will help us to deliver beautiful cosmetic results. Let us know what medications or supplements you may be taking, if you have any medical conditions or have any known allergies.
