Botox, which has botulinum toxin as its active ingredient, is the number one medspa non-surgical anti-aging procedure in the US today. One of the reasons behind the wide acceptance and popularity of Botox among both women and men is that the injectable treatment requires no anesthesia, and does not involve any downtime or recovery process.
During the Botox consultation, the treatment provider will explain about all aspects of this FDA approved injectable procedure. Patients should ask questions about the recovery aspects to satisfy themselves before going ahead with the treatment. 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 communities.
‘Lunch Time Procedure’
Botox injections should be performed only at a qualified medspa by a trained expert or a certified Botox provider. When the injections are administered correctly by a skilled provider, the procedure can be completed in less than 30 minutes. No advance preparation or post-treatment care will be necessary.
That makes it an ideal procedure for busy working people, who can use their lunch hour from work to get the Botox injections, and simply return to their workplace after the treatment. For this reason, Botox treatment has earned the sobriquet of a ‘lunch time procedure’.
However, the patient should take care not to lie down for about four hours after the Botox injections. This much time period will be required for the botulinum toxin to spread effectively in the targeted areas. The patient should also refrain from massaging the injection site or performing any aggressive exercises for 24 hours after the treatment. Other than that, they can continue with their normal routine at work or home as needed.
Temporary Side Effects
Although Botox treatment involves no incisions, sutures or bandages, but side effects such as mild bruising, swelling or redness in the treated areas cannot be ruled out. Some patients may also experience minor headaches for some time.
These side effects will quickly resolve over the next two or three days. No specific treatment may be required for them. From the second day after the treatment, the patient may wear makeup to conceal any traces of bruising and swelling caused by the injections.
For the patient’s own safety, they should avoid their gym or workout routine for a day or two after the injections. Blood thinning medications such as aspirin or ibuprofen should also be avoided for two to three days after the injections.
The patient can see noticeable results immediately after the injection procedure. Full results of Botox will establish in about one week as the bruising and swelling resolves completely. Most patients can enjoy the results for three to six months after the treatment.
Under the guidance of a medical professional, Botox treatment may be repeated in future for extended benefits. Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas have an opportunity to receive Botox injectable treatment and various other aesthetic procedures at Motykie medical spa.
