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! In fact, Botox treatments account for over 50% of all cosmetic treatments around, and the crazy thing is that these numbers are only on the rise each and every day! As the top Botox specialist Boston has to offer, Dr. Shanathala of Shanthala MD Medspa and Laser Center uses Botox on a number of patients, for a variety of different reasons, the most common being of course, wrinkle relief. As per DR. SHANTHALA, the top Botox specialist Boston has in practice, the popular injectable of 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.
· Ask About the Vendor!
One of the most interesting things that has been happening of late, is that non-certified doctors and medical professionals are purchasing black market or illegal Botox. According to Dr. Shanthala, the top Botox specialist Boston has to offer, while sometimes these Botox vials are even fake, more than often, they are genuine Botox, just expired and purchased at a drastic discount. However, this is very dangerous as it can lead to very poor results and things. The top manufacturers to know in this field are Allergan, Merz, and Galderma.
· Be Careful of Too-Good-to-Be-True Pricing
Search the internet, and you’ll find some outrageously low prices for procedures like Botox or other dermal fillers. And many patients almost exclusively jump from doctor to doctor, looking for amazing deals. The fact is that I use the term doctor loosely, and many of these people offering these outrageous deals are not even certified. No certified Botox expert like, Dr. Shanthala, the top Botox specialist Boston has to offer, would work and be able to offer some of these outrageous bargain bin prices.
· 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 its 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.
