You may be wondering if Botox® treatments are safe to subject yourself to in order to reinvigorate your youth or simply reverse wrinkles. Another question you may be asking: “How do I restore my youthful appearance without having surgery?” You’re not alone. Thousands of our patients at New Beginnings Medical in Florida have reversed the look of aging with Botox® and various other personal cosmetic enhancing treatments we offer. Want to know if the botulinum toxin is safe? Read on to find out!
How does Botox® Work?
Botox® inhibits nerve signals from your facial muscles to your brain, which relaxes and, essentially, stops your facial muscles from contracting. A large majority of wrinkles, creases, and lines on the face are from you expressing yourself, using those facial muscles. You won’t lose your ability to express yourself, but you will find that less wrinkles will develop while using Botox® injections to rejuvenate your facial appearance.
Do I need to prepare for the treatment?
It may sound too good to be true, but there is little to no preparation for Botox® treatments. The most you will need to prepare is your scheduling and your general feeling of relaxation. Our goal at New Beginnings Medical Spa is to help you remain comfortable while enhancing your facial appearance. Whether you need extra time to relax due to fear of needles, or you are able to proceed with your Botox® shots as scheduled, we will help.
What to expect after Botox® Treatment?
In most cases, you can return to your regular day directly after Botox® injections. Sessions usually don’t last more than 20 minutes once you’re brought back from the waiting room. Your medical history and consultation will have revealed any potential complications, which would have been discussed and addressed prior. However, it’s imperative to be completely transparent with your certified specialist to ensure your health and safety. Nonetheless, if you want to find Botox® clinics near you, consider New Beginnings Medical Spa in Florida with six locations.
Who Should Administer the Botox® Injections?
As an FDA approved cosmetic treatment option, you will want to require a certified Botox® injection specialist to administer your shots. At New Beginnings Medical Spa, our specialists are not only certified, but they are also great with providing patient comfort and excellent chairside manner. We want your experience to be as comfortable and relaxing as possible.
What are some side effects?
In rare cases, patients may experience uncomfortable side effects like bruising, inflammation, and tenderness at the injection site. To reduce the risk of these unwanted effects, you can follow a few general tips listed below:
- Do not lay down for at least three to four hours after treatment.
- Do not exercise for at least 24 hours after treatment.
- Avoid touching or applying makeup to your face for at least three to four hours after treatment.
- Do not sunbathe or tan for at least three to four hours after treatment.
Is Botox® Safe?
Although botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin and it sounds scary, it is perfectly safe. You want to make sure these two factors are accounted for before receiving Botox® treatments:
- Was the Botox® made by a certified professional?
- Will a certified specialist be administering the treatment?
You can rest assured that the Botox® injections at New Beginnings Medical Spa are administered by certified specialists.
