Doctors’ Top 9 Tips for Best Botox Results (Part 1)
For patients considering having Botox injections to smooth facial wrinkles, our Birmingham, MI Med Spa, board certified plastic surgeon Doctor Ali offers these nine tips to ensure patients receive the best Botox results possible.
Always go to a Doctor for Botox
While perfectly safe in the hands of a qualified medical professional, Botox is a potent, muscle paralyzing neurotoxin that is injected directly into the face. So only an experienced, licensed doctor or nurse should perform the procedure.
There are severe consequences to consider if a person receives Botox injections at a mall or private house party. When done incorrectly, or without proper training bad Botox can seriously endanger the patient. It may become hard for them to breathe, swallow or speak and some might even experience vision problems.
Cosmetically, Botox “gone wrong” by a non-medical provider can cause unattractive muscle drooping or an asymmetrical appearance in the face, along with frozen features or odd facial expressions. Of course, it’s much safer to place trust in a licensed and experienced medical professional, like the team at AMAE Med Spa in Birmingham, MI.
Botox injections at AMAE Med Spa are performed in a safe, sterile setting by a licensed and experienced doctor or nurse injector. Patients should feel confident knowing their Botox treatment will be administered by a plastic surgeon or aesthetic nurse using the highest medical standards possible to ensure their safety and optimal results.
Ask Your Botox Doctor for Before & After Pics
Every experienced Botox doctor has their own professional method when it comes to delivering optimal Botox results. Some prefer simple techniques to freeze muscles and smooth wrinkles, along with all facial expression. Others carefully craft just the right effect for a smoother but still natural appearance.
One simple way to confirm the surgeon’s ideal matches with the patient’s desired outcome is to look at their before and after treatment photos of previous patients. If the post-treatment photos are appealing and match the overall look and appearance the patient wants, then it’s a good sign the doctor is a Botox artist and will deliver the right result.
Tell Your Botox Doctor about Any Medications You’re Taking
Since Botox is a medical procedure, the patient should disclose all medications and supplements they are taking to the Botox doctor. Even some common over-the-counter drugs and herbal remedies can thin the blood. That means the patient could experience harsher bruising after treatment. It may be necessary to suspend taking the medication or supplement for a few days before the procedure to prevent excessive bruising.
Don’t Move While Your Doctor Injects the Botox
It’s wonderfully exciting to finally be getting Botox. But unless the doctor requests you to smile or frown at specific moments, it’s important to keep your face and body still during the procedure. This ensures the injections go where they are meant to and any bruising is minimal.
