Botox is an FDA approved injection procedure to temporarily mitigate the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines. The Botox treatment provider at a qualified med spa will explain the steps involved in the procedure.
The procedure can be completed in less than 20 minutes and the patient can return to their home or workplace immediately. Motykie medical spa provides Botox treatment to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
Learn about Botox
Before taking the first step about choosing a qualified med spa to receive Botox injections from a certified provider, the patient should do their own research online and learn about Botox as much as possible. Once they have a fair understanding of the procedure, they will be in a better to position to discuss the best treatment plan with the Botox provider.
Choose a Provider
Once the patient has made up their mind to receive Botox treatment, they should select an appropriate med spa that has the necessary expertise and facility to offer safe and effective Botox treatments. The med spa should preferably be led by a board certified plastic surgeon, who can ensure that best practices and standards are followed and the latest safety protocols are observed during treatment.
Sharing Information with the Provider
During the Botox consultation, the patient should inform the provider if they have received any type of botulinum toxin injections within the last four to six months. If the patient is taking any sleeping pills, allergy medications or muscle relaxants, they should let the provider know about it.
Patients who are taking blood thinners will have to stop using them for about two weeks prior to the treatment. This will help to minimize bruising and bleeding. If the patient smokes or drinks alcohol, they will be required to avoid them for about one to two weeks prior to the Botox appointment.
The administering of Botox injections will only take a few minutes. The provider will first identify the areas where targeted Botox treatment can be delivered. The areas will be cleansed with a mild solution. No anesthesia is required, but the provider may decide to apply a topical numbing cream in the marked areas to keep the patient totally comfortable during treatment.
The provider will use a narrow gauge micro-needle to inject Botox into the specific facial muscles that are causing wrinkle formation. Frown lines and the outer eye area are the most common areas where Botox treatment is used. An individual muscle may be injected with one to three injections in most cases. Pain or discomfort will be minimal because of the tiny size of the needle.
Once the treatment is completed, the provider will give a few instructions to the patient to maintain results. The treated area should not be rubbed for massaged for at least 12 hours following the Botox injections. For about three to four hours after the procedure, the patient should avoid lying down.
This will help ensure that the neurotoxin does not move to another area of the face where it is not required. Motykie medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for Botox.
