Here at Mariposa Aesthetics & Laser Center, we offer the latest and most advanced technological solutions for BOTOX® treatments. This popular non-surgical procedure uses a purified protein solution to cause muscle relaxation which leads to smoothing the skin and reducing wrinkles. The results are very effective and consistently satisfying, but there are still a few things you’ll need to know before getting a BOTOX® treatment.
1. Licensed Professionals Are the Best!
We strongly believe that you should never trust your face and body to anyone, and that you should only trust licensed and certified professionals like us for cosmetic treatments. You should also check to make sure your practitioner uses trusted official vendors for the injectables and supplies they will be using.
2. Professionals Consultations Are Important
Never undervalue the importance of seeking a professional consultation before getting your BOTOX® treatment. You should always seek thorough advice and a health assessment prior to getting any injections. As experienced professionals will usually gauge your natural facial movement during a BOTOX® procedure, and considering the fact that certain diets have different effects on the results, getting a health assessment beforehand will greatly increase your chances of a rewarding BOTOX® treatment.
3. Avoid Blood-Thinning Medications Prior to Treatment
Blood-thinning medications containing aspirin or ibuprofen will hinder blood clotting and increase the chances of bruising during a BOTOX® treatment. Stay as far away from them as possible prior to getting any BOTOX® injections. Food and supplements that are high in antioxidants such as green tea, multivitamins and fish oil should also be avoided since they can prevent clotting by increasing the fragility of blood vessels.
4. Know Your Treatment Goals Beforehand
You should always be as realistic as possible about your treatment goals and what you expect from each BOTOX® procedure. This weighs heavily on how much treatment is needed and what your individual expectations are. If you only need minimal treatment, then you will only need approximately two to three BOTOX® routines a year. Make sure you discuss your treatment goals with a professional for more personalized recommendations.
5. Seek Advice from Former Patients
Last but not least, get advice from former patients who have had successful treatments. While they are probably not as knowledgeable as clinical professionals about the procedure, they will still have good advice for you to use to prepare for your BOTOX® treatment.
