Botox treatment is the most popular rejuvenation solution today. Do you have enough information to perform this beauty method safely?
Botox injections really have a rejuvenating effect. There are almost no side effects, and the results of each treatment last quite a long time. However, before deciding to inject Botox, you should know some information about the procedure as well as possible complications.
The sooner you get a Botox injection, the better
“Preventative Botox” is the term used when younger women (about 20 to 30 years old) use Botox because wrinkles appear even when the face is not moving. Our Botox Brampton staff suggest you start early, not only to prevents wrinkles from appearing more but also to reverse the aging process.
Pay attention to the source of the compound used for injection
Make sure your doctor is licensed to use the compounds, toxins (such as botulinum) used to perform Botox procedures. To avoid being injected with products that are out of date, tainted or dangerous to your health, you can search the manufacturers’ websites of these compounds and use their search engine to check if they are correct. Did your doctor get the product from a reliable source? Our Botox clinic Brampton uses Allergan, Merz and Galderma, the top three manufacturers that distribute safe medical and cosmetic toxins and fillers.
Avoid certain food and medication before the procedure
Most people familiar with Botox and filler procedures know to avoid medications like aspirin and ibuprofen prior to injection, as these interfere with blood clotting and increase the risk of bruising if the needle hits a blood vessel. No fish oil, multivitamins, green tea, cinnamon, ginger, or red wine one week before treatment. Most antioxidants can thin blood vessels and thin the blood.
Bruises can be cleared off
Neurotoxins typically require smaller needles and are often injected more shallowly on the surface of the skin than fillers, but any needle has the potential to hit a blood vessel, causing bleeding under the skin and creating an ugly bruise. The best Botox treatment Brampton has to offer will give you a free next-day vascular laser procedure, which breaks down the hematoma into tiny particles, significantly reducing bruising within 24 hours.
A consultation is crucial
Our Botox Brampton dermatologists will first tell you to smile, frown, and raise your eyebrows. An experienced professional will carefully assess how different areas of your face naturally move. They will adjust the amount of compound injected to avoid stiffening the facial muscles.
