Botox Maintenance Guide
BOTOX® is the only approved treatment on the market to temporarily improve the signs of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines. Reducing, the appearance of wrinkles that cause these unwanted and unnecessary lines, Botox works beneath the skin’s surface and targeting underlying muscle activity to reduce signs of aging. So why are so many people still confused by the benefits in using this product?
Botox is a great alternative to invasive cosmetic procedures. Why? Because it’s quick, painless, and seldom causes side effects. You get real, noticeable results when using Botox. It can take up to 14 days to settle, but you may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours depending on the severity of your wrinkles. The best part, most results last up to 4 months!
Botox works great on everyone! It has been proven safe for most people, especially those who wish to eliminate dynamic wrinkles. Botox works best on younger patients, and is recommended for people between the ages of 18 and 70.
So what are the basic DO’S & DON’TS when it comes to getting Botox?
✓ DO: Choose the right doctor. If you pick an injector who’s inexperienced at administering Botox Cosmetic, your Botox results aren’t going to last as long as they should
✓ DO: Avoid the sun. You’ll want to avoid sun exposure on the day of your Botox treatment. Why? Because sun exposure boosts blood circulation, causing blood vessels to dilate, potentially shortening your Botox results faster than normal. So, make sure to wear a sunscreen with an SPF 30+
✓ DO: Exercise your muscles. A few days after treatment. Go ahead and make weird faces, consult with your doctor but it’s recommended to do post exercises to help the Botox to settle
✓ DO: Get Botox treatments regularly. If you have Botox sessions at regular intervals, then your muscles will become weaker over time. This means that Botox’s effects will last longer
✘ DON’T: Take any kind of aspirin and/or anti-inflammatory. These include: products that contain aspirin, ibuprofen, and vitamin E – doing so could significantly increase the chance of bruising following treatment, because these medicines are considered to be blood thinners
✘ DON’T: Drink alcohol. Avoid alcohol the day before and the day of treatment to help minimize any bruising
✘ DON’T: Massage or manipulate the area that was injected IMMEDIATELY after treatment. This is crucial in allowing your Botox to settle and do it’s proper work and give you the best results.
