What To Do Brfore A Botulinum Toxin Procedure

1. Avoid any Blood-Thinning Substances for a Few Days Before your Treatment.

Yes, this includes alcohol. If you are on any blood-thinning medication, meet with your doctor and discuss the best course of action for you. 

Staying on blood-thinning medication on the days surrounding your treatment may cause excessive bruising and could lead to improper healing. 

Even supplements like Vitamin E and fish oil have blood-thinning properties, so disclose your full medical history and medication regime with your doctor.

2. Stay Hydrated!

Staying hydrated will ensure your skin will be in tip-top shape for your Botulinum Toxin injections. At least a week before your scheduled treatment date, make sure you drink plenty of water every day.

3. Eat Lots of Leafy Greens.

Leafy greens, like kale and spinach, for example, are full of Vitamin K. Vitamin K is known for reducing bruising, swelling, and inflammation—3 possible side effects of Botulinum Toxin treatments.

Why Are Botulinum Toxin Injections so Effective?

Not only is Botulinum Toxin the best effective treatment, it is also the best preventative treatment. 

The reason Botulinum Toxin injections are so effective as an anti-wrinkle treatment is because they target the underlying cause of fine lines and wrinkles — the muscle.

How Do Fine Lines And Wrinkles Form?

Now you may be wondering how fine lines and wrinkles form. It all starts with a nerve telling a muscle to contract. 

This causes the overlying skin to scrunch up. With time and repeated contractions, the skin begins to thin at specific points, and a wrinkle is born.

Think of the skin as a piece of paper. By folding the paper along the same crease over and over, you are deepening/reinforcing that fold and weakening the paper.

Now imagine all of a sudden you cannot fold the piece of paper. Instead, you flatten it out and place it between two large books. With time the fold fades. 

That is the same mechanism by which Botulinum Toxin can prevent and decrease the wrinkles of the face. 

The significant distinction in the analogy, however, is that skin is a living organ that can regenerate. So with time and good skin care, wrinkles virtually disappear.

How to Make Botulinum Toxin Last Longer

Protect Your Skin

You’re likely well aware that too much sun exposure can damage your skin, causing not only uneven skin tones and spots but those wrinkles you’re looking to prevent in the first place.

Pamper Your Skin

Topical anti-wrinkle treatments won’t give you the same results as Botulinum Toxin injections. However, there are skincare products on the market that will strengthen your skin, promote healing from environmental factors affecting your skin, and make Botulinum Toxin last longer.

Be Active, In A Gentler Way

Intense exercise tends to speed up your metabolic rate, even causing some inflammation in your muscles. While maintaining a healthy lifestyle is key, no matter your chosen injectables, it’s important to note that those who exercise more aggressively.

Stay Hydrated & Eat Well

While drinking enough water throughout the day won’t prevent wrinkles, studies show that upping your water intake will improve overall skin health, even increasing elasticity in some. 

It’s essential to stay hydrated after Botulinum Toxin  treatments, as dehydration can lead to a speedier return of fine lines.

Don’t Smoke

Smoking ages your skin and causes wrinkles and fine lines around your mouth every time you take a drag.

Relax & Rest

Stress touches so many aspects of your life, and the lifespan of your Botulinum Toxin  treatments is no exception. In addition to causing a breakdown in the injectables, stress-related facial expressions, like frowning, can affect the efficacy of your last treatment.

What Happens During a Botulinum Toxin Procedure?

During the Botulinum Toxin procedure, you’ll receive Botulinum Toxin cosmetic injections after your skin is cleaned. You’ll get several shots with a fine needle on the areas where you want to achieve results.

Most people can tolerate minor discomfort from Botulinum Toxin injections, but you can ask for numbing options, like ice and vibration anesthesia that massages to reduce discomfort, or topical anesthesia.

For most, the injection feels like an insect bite. People tend to tolerate all neuromodulators well.

After the procedure, you’ll experience no downtime. You’ll be able to return to your daily activities once the procedure is over.

You will need to take special care of the treated areas to avoid the risk of spreading Botulinum Toxin .

For example, a doctor might recommend avoiding massaging or rubbing the treated areas for a specific amount of time. Doing so could cause the injections to migrate to different areas.

How Often Should I Be Doing Botulinum Toxin ?

Botulinum Toxin injections solve an array of cosmetic and medical challenges. They are used by many to prevent signs of aging, diminish deep lines, and create a smooth, youthful complexion. 

However, Botulinum Toxin is not a permanent treatment and requires upkeep to maintain the stunning benefits the injections provide. 

The frequency of Botulinum Toxin treatment depends on many factors, including age, genetics, and the severity of the individual cosmetic challenge.

Although the longevity of Botulinum Toxin injection can look different for every patient, the treatment commonly lasts around three to four months. 

However, it can last up to six months for some and only two months for others. It all depends on your specific needs and unique makeup. 

By working with a skilled and trusted injection specialist, you can find the perfect Botulinum Toxin plan to achieve rejuvenated and stunning results.
