Botox is a safe, distinguished, and effective non-surgical medspa procedure designed to reduce aging lines and wrinkles from certain areas of the face. The consultation with the Botox provider prior to the injectable treatment will help the patient to understand all about the procedure and make a well-considered decision.
Motykie medical spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides Botox injections to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
Assessing Patient’s Goals
During the consultation process, the Botox treatment provider will first try to understand the patient’s reasons for seeking this injectable procedure. If the patient is more interested in facial skin tightening, lifting of sagging skin, reduction of deep creases and folds on the face, or looking for long-term results, the provider may recommend alternative medspa treatments with or without Botox injections.
The provider will educate the patient about various aspects of Botox injections, including its label and non-label uses, potential effectiveness, how soon the results will appear, temporary side effects, and how long the results are expected to last. The consultation process will be more comprehensive particularly for a patient who is seeking Botox injections for the first time.
To ensure that the patient understands clearly what Botox can or cannot do for them, the treatment provider may present Botox before and after photos during the course of the consultation. The patient can review the photos to see for themselves how Botox may improve their facial youthful looks for a temporary period of time.
Some treatment providers may also like to present before the patient testimonials of past patients who have received Botox treatment and shared their experiences for the benefit of other patients. This will help a new patient to gain more insights about Botox treatment from an actual patient’s perspective.
The candidate seeking Botox treatment should be in good general health. The procedure is fairly simple, but not every individual may be a good candidate for Botox injections. At the time of the consultation, the provider will ask the patient about any known skin allergies, or whether they have experienced side effects from Botox or its variants in the past.
The provider will may also check the patient’s facial skin for any untreated infections, skin quality and degree of elasticity, droopiness in the eyelids, and weakness in the forehead muscles, if any. If the patient is pregnant or nursing, she may not be considered for Botox procedure.
If the patient is a smoker or regular alcohol drinker, they will be instructed to minimize or stop their use for about one to two weeks prior to Botox injections. The use of blood thinners and certain herbal supplements and vitamins may also have to be temporarily stopped.
The patient should feel free to discuss the cost aspects of Botox treatment during the consultation, and make a well-informed choice after considering all options. Motykie medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for Botox cosmetic treatment.
