Have you reached your 30's and are starting to notice some of those fine lines slowly transform into wrinkles in front of your eyes? It's a moment none of us really like to acknowledge but it's a part of life that we simply can't ignore (and the positive side effect of being blessed with the opportunity to age!). However, if you want to get ahead of it - and stop watching those wrinkles get deeper - then now is the time to consider injectables like Botox.
Many of the patients we consult with who are new to injectables are a bit hesitant to get started.
Both because this means admitting to getting older, but also because they don't want to overdo it and come out the other side looking overly injected (we've all seen those nightmare before & afters!).
- Be mindful of allergies and supplements before your appointment. Aspirin, Fish Oil & Vitamin E use should stop a week prior to initial botox appointment because the use can increase bruising.
- Results will typically show within 7-10 days with full affects resulting within 2 weeks.
- Post care is a must! Do not lie flat during the first 4 hours post op; refrain from using aspirin, ibuprofen and above listed supplements for 24 hours following injection.
- Refrain from wearing tight hats and aerobic exercise that increases your heart rate for 24 hours following injection, low impact exercises such as walking are fine.
We're grateful for the opportunity to help so many of our patients achieve the skin of their dreams, and hope to help you too!
