BOTOX®, or botulinum toxin, is a treatment for temporary improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and moderate to severe frown lines between and around the eyes. Common areas of treatment include the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. While BOTOX® Cosmetic is an exciting prospect, like every medical treatment, BOTOX® Cosmetic, too, has its possible risks and side effects. Understanding what to expect from the procedure and preparing for the session can, however, increase the chances of achieving desired results. Read on to learn five tips that will help you undergo the procedure smoothly and get the most out of the treatment.

  • Schedule your appointment for BOTOX® Cosmetic with only a licensed provider

You should ensure that you schedule your treatment session only with a licensed provider who has experience and expertise in administering BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments. Ask them about their educational background, the number of BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments they administer each year, and the images that depict the results of their treatments.

  • Communicate the goals of your treatment clearly

BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA approved to treat three areas of the face, including frown lines, forehead lines, and crow's feet. Communicate your treatment goals to your licensed provider and ask what your treatment plan might look like. Also, discuss the estimated duration of the treatment and the result you will achieve from it. Clear, open, and honest communication with your provider about your treatment goals and expectations can help them formulate a personalized treatment plan for you. 

  • Communicate honestly about your medical history

Be clear and transparent about your medical history, including any present health conditions you have, your allergies, and the medications you take. This includes vitamins, supplements, OTC medicines, and well as prescription medications. This will help your licensed provider understand any potential side effects that may arise from BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment.

  • Understand your fears and express your concerns

If you have any fear or concerns about the procedure, be free to communicate them with your provider. If you are worried about needles or the pain during BOTOX® Cosmetic, understand that it is normal, especially if you are a first-timer. Open up about them to your provider; they would have techniques to ease your anxiety, like cognitive exercises and meditation.

  • Prepare to schedule a follow-up appointment

After your treatment, you'll likely be eager to see your results quickly, but it may take up to 4 hours to several weeks to see full results. Also, remember that the results of BOTOX® Cosmetic are not permanent; it can last only up to four months if your frown lines are moderate to severe. Understand this timeline, and you should come back to your doctor for more consultations to maintain the results of the treatment.
