The fine lines and wrinkles seem to fade away, leaving you with a renewed sense of confidence and a youthful glow. Getting neurotoxins for the first time proves to be a transformative and empowering journey, helping you embrace your most radiant self.

While some fear of the unknown is to be expected, there are some steps you can take to prepare for your first visit. The following tips will help reduce your stress level and make sure that you feel comfortable going into your first appointment.

1 – Keep in Mind That It's Relatively Painless

Perhaps more than anything, first time patients are worried about discomfort during the treatment. The good news is that Botox injections are relatively painless. While the procedure does require the use of a needle, the needle is small enough that it causes minimal discomfort.

Botox is injected with some of the tiniest microneedles in the market (BD Syringes). It doesn’t do any deeper than a few millimetres. It does even require anesthesia so no need to be anxious about pain!

2 – Avoid Painkillers and Alcohol Before Your Session.

More good news! You really don’t need to take any steps to prepare your body for Botox Injections. In fact, our medical practitioners typically recommend that you avoid taking any painkillers before your appointment.

Painkillers such as ibuprofen and aspirin as well as blood thinners can make you more susceptible to bruising. Any time you undergo a medical procedure, it is imperative that you let your doctor know what medication you’re taking before your appointment. Remember to stay away from alcohol as well.

3 – It Only Takes a Few Minutes

The amount of time you spent in the mirror examining your face this morning far exceeds the time it will take to undergo Botox injections. While you may have spent months weighing whether botox is the right choice for you, the actual procedure is relatively quick and easy.

The procedure itself only takes a few minutes. You will be done before you know it!

4- It's Hassle-Free

Botox injections have no downtime. If you have had your ears pierced, you should be more than prepared to get Botox injections. You can return to your ususal routine immediately after your treatment.

With any injection, there is always a chance of redness, swelling, or bruising, however these effects are temporary.

5 – Be Patient About the Results.

In all probability, you have been considering getting Botox injections for some time and now that your first appointment is around the corner, you will be eager to see results.

It’s normal to be excited to see the results. But keep in mind that it takes a few days up to two weeks (fourteen days) before you see full effects of this refreshing procedure. You can expect your results to last up to four months, at which time it is recommended that you repeat the treatment.

In conclusion, any time you undergo a medical procedure, it is important to do your research. Make sure that you are working with an experienced medical practitiomer. Also, don’t be afraid to ask questions. Your health and well-being couldn’t be more important. Finally, knowing what to expect before you enter the office for your first appointment can go a long way to alleviating fears.
