Botox has become the go-to cosmetic treatment for wrinkle reduction and anti-aging.
But did you know there are Botox pre and post treatment tips your clients should follow to achieve the best results?
During Botox training at National Laser Institute, you will learn Botox pre and post treatment tips in order to minimize the risk of possible side effects and complications from Botox injections.
Botox Pre-Care Instructions
Timing is everything. It is best to schedule Botox, Dysport and dermal filler treatments at least two weeks before a big event. Since these cosmetic treatments require little to no downtime, many clients choose to have them done on their lunch break — Botox can be administered in as little as 10 – 15 minutes!
Ask questions. Many first-time Botox clients are curious about the cost, how many units of botulinum toxin are needed and which areas of the face can be treated with Botox and dermal fillers.
Avoid blood thinning medication. One week prior, avoid aspirin, ibuprofen (generic, Advil, Aleve or Motrin), Vitamin E and fish oil or omega-3s to prevent bruising.
Don’t skip breakfast. The morning of, consume plenty of food and drink as this will decrease the chances of lightheadedness during the treatment.
Botox Aftercare Instructions
Wait 24 hours before getting other facial treatments. Wait at least a day before getting back into that normal skincare routine. This allows the body time to adjust to the medical aesthetics treatment.
Sit up. Do not lie down after a Botox treatment. This is to avoid the risk of pressure on the treated areas and to avoid the risk of having the area rubbed accidentally.
Go back for touch-ups if needed. Schedule a follow-up appointment if more Botox injections are needed 2 weeks after the first Botox treatment.
Avoid painkillers. Painkillers should be used sparingly for headaches or facial pain. Strong painkillers such as Aspirin and ibuprofen should be avoided.
