What First Time Botox Users Should Expect

Many individuals become concerned about their frown lines as the get older. More individuals are opting to undergo Botox injections to lessen these fine lines, creases and wrinkles on the face. This is a common cosmetic procedure that can be done in one session in an outpatient or office setting. Many med spas, like Timeless Aesthetics Beauty Lounge, offers this popular facial treatment as part of their menu options.

Here’s What First Time Botox Users Should Expect

Undergoing Botox injections for the first time may seem a bit scary for some. However, most individuals love their end results. It is important to note that the full actual results seen may not appear for a few days to about two weeks as the Botox slowly gets released into the underlying muscles that are underneath where the wrinkles and lines are.

The muscles will gradually relax, and your face will feel relaxed but not numb. Basically, the Botox injections cause the muscles to smooth out and prevents those muscle tensing movements that create those frown lines and wrinkles in the first place.

Follow All Preparation Instruction Prior to Your Botox Appointment

There are a few things to avoid before coming in to your first Botox session. Usually, you will be required to avoid fish oil, vitamin E, ibuprofen, alcohol and aspirin. Also avoid any products that contain garlic or ginseng as these can increase the risk of bruising. These items should be avoided for about a week prior to your session. A full list of instructions will be given to clients when they book their appointments according to Paige Simpson of Timeless Aesthetics.

Expect to Feel Mild Sensations on Skin During the Injection Process

Your face will be cleansed with alcohol to ensure no nasty germs are present since this is a minimally invasive procedure. A topical numbing medicine can be applied, but many clients do not mind the mild stinging sensations. There will usually be a few injections rather than just one, and these injection sites will vary somewhat depending on the person’s unique frown lines and wrinkle placement.

Things to Expect After Undergoing Botox Injections

Some clients will notice small dots of blood or slight bumps immediately after getting the injections. This is normal, and these marks will fade after about 20 minutes to an hour. Most experts recommend that clients not lie down for roughly 4 hours after the session. Clients should also avoid getting facials, massages of the face and rubbing the area with moisturizers or facial cleansers for a few days. Follow all post-procedure instructions given to you at the session end.
