TOP Botox Specialist MD Boston

Your Pre-Botox Checklist

In the ever-changing world of aesthetic enhancement and cosmetic medicine, it seems like more and more individuals are gaining a certain level of comfort with procedures and treatments, whether they are surgical or non-invasive. For the better part of the last two decades, one such product has taken the aesthetics world by storm, slowly becoming the most popular method of enhancement around – Botox! Botox treatments account for over 50% of all cosmetic treatments around, and the crazy thing is that these numbers are only on the rise every day! As the top Botox specialist Boston has to offer, Dr. Shanathala who is a Harvard-trained board-certified MD  uses Botox for a variety of different reasons, the most common being of course, wrinkle relief. As per DR. SHANTHALA,  the popular injectable botulinum toxin eliminates wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles in the face – despite being a bit nerve-wracking, the paralysis is temporary and can offer some of the best results around the industry! Despite its effectiveness and popularity, there are tons of things individuals don’t know about how to go into a Botox appointment. To better educate you, here are some important things to remember for your pre-Botox checklist to keep you safe and happy.

· Avoid Certain Stuff Before Your Injection

Some things can drastically harm your Botox injections and it is vital to avoid these things before they harm you and don’t offer you the results you want. It is important to avoid anticoagulants such as aspirin and ibuprofen before treatment, since those types of drugs hinder blood clotting and increase the risk of bruising should the needle accidentally make contact with a blood vessel. Also avoid fish oil, multivitamins, green tea, cinnamon, ginger, and red wine a full week before treatment – and most other antioxidants, as they will make your blood vessels more sensitive.

· Take Some Time After

The best thing to do when you’re getting Botox done is to take the rest of the day off. Sometimes it can cause slight dizziness and overall fatigue. Plus it’s best to avoid makeup, washing, or too much exercise – its best to lay back and chill and allow your Botox treatment area to heal and chill on its own.

If you are looking for a board-certified trained and experienced MD to do your Botox, be sure to contact DR. SHANTHALA as well.
