The Do’s and Don’ts of Getting Botox

Fact: Botox is one of the safest treatments you can get, and a few units can work wonders if you feel like your complexion is in need of a refresh. While the entire process can be done in a matter of minutes, there are a few key things you should and shouldn’t do in the days before and after your appointment.

DO Your Research

Make sure to research your doctor before booking your appointment, and only go to a professional practitioner. While a lot of doctors can theoretically administer the treatment, going to one who is trained in the technique will ensure optimal results and reduce the risk of any complications. At West Dermatology, we pride ourselves in having some of the best board-certified dermatologists in the country so that you get the best results possible.

DO Move the Injected Areas

In the hour following your treatment, try to move the treated area by making pronounced facial expressions. Frown, smile, raise your brows, and make faces to your heart’s content. This allows the Botox to better reach the muscles it needs to target.

DO Schedule a Follow-Up Appointment

Touch base with your doctor about two weeks post-procedure to make sure everything is settling correctly. Because Botox takes about 14 days to take full effect, a follow-up appointment will allow your doctor to determine if more units are needed for a specific area. 

DON’T Apply Pressure to the Area

As tempting as it can be to massage the treated area, avoid applying pressure in the hours after your appointment to prevent having the Botox migrate. 

DON’T Work Out for 24 Hours

Physical activity and extreme heat can increase the chances of bruising or swelling, so make sure to reschedule those workout classes for the day or so following your appointment. 

Follow the above tips, and your radiant complexion will be on full display in no time. If you want more personalized advice, we’re here for you! Feel free to reach out to our board-certified medical professionals today to schedule your consultation and appointment.
