Things You Need to Know Before Having a Botox Injection

Despite the fact that several skincare products and cosmetic procedures are popular in this time and age, the interest and curiosity with regards Botox just continue to rise. For this reason, several plastic surgery companies from Kansas City or elsewhere in the country are still offering this kind of procedures to people, most especially to the ones who want to enhance their looks.


If you are a first-timer in the cosmetic procedure world and you want to try having Botox, here are some of the things that you need to know before having this procedure.

Know where your injectable came from

Before you indulge yourself in having an injectable, one of the things that you should know is if your surgeon is an official vendor of the substance that you are about to be injected - whether you are having an Azzalure, Botox, Dysport, or Vistabel. By being knowledgeable about this vital factor, you are able to protect yourself from being injected expired, contaminated, or dangerous product/s to enter your body. To do this, you can always check the authenticity of the injectable’s substance via a tool that enables you to search the zip code of every licensed physician that has obtained their product legally. This can be found on the manufacturer’s website.

Beware of injectable bargains

We all know that injectables do not come cheap. This is why when you are offered a Botox or a filler that has an unquestionable price, the chances are high that you are being given a diluted dosage or substance - which is, of course, not good for you or for your body to take. In addition, when you are being recommended an injectable that has a low price, it only means that it is purchased in a country wherein the government controls the pharmaceutical prices lower compared to others. To avoid having problems in this aspect, make sure that you do your research, call around, and ask for questions regarding the injectables that you are planning to have.

Be aware of the medicines you need to avoid before taking an injectable

Before you undergo the Botox Injectable procedure, there are certain medicines that you should not take hours or days before the big day. For example, you should avoid anticoagulants like aspirin and ibuprofen as these drugs can be a hindrance to blood clotting and reducing the risks of having bruises due to the needle hitting a blood vessel. However, there are other medicines or food that you should not take into your body system before your Botox injectables such as fish oil, multivitamins, green tea, cinnamon, ginger, and red wine.

Going for consultation is a must

Of course, another important thing that you should do before you delve into your most awaited botox procedure is to consult your doctor or surgeon. Visiting your resident doctor or surgeon will help you feel a lot of emotions - from being happy to being curious about the procedure. Always remember that an experienced and professional doctor is carefully watching and observing you the whole time in order for him/her to see how the different areas of your face move naturally. As a result, he/she will know where to inject the substance so that you will still be looking fresh rather than being expressionless.

Key Takeaway

Having a botox is indeed one of the best decisions that you can ever make - of course, with proper planning and research about it. This is why being knowledgeable about these things and information is indeed a must before you undergo the Botox injectable procedure so that you can prepare for it carefully and thoroughly.
