What should I know before my first Botox® appointment

Are you thinking about getting Botox® for the first time? Despite being one of the current most popular aesthetic procedures, you may still have questions in your mind before the first treatment.

At Daub Aesthetics, we aim to help you feel comfortable and excited about your selected treatment. Dr. Daub takes her time to explain how Wrinkle Relaxers work and identify your target treatment areas and most optimal dosage. She offers all patients in-office consultations, complete with an explanation of services, pre-op photographs, a thorough examination and time to discuss treatment options. First time Botox® treatments can be completed at this initial meeting or can be scheduled for a later date.

If you are interested in receiving treatment during your first visit, here are a few things to keep in mind before you come:

  • Schedule your appointment at least 2 weeks prior to an upcoming special event. It takes up to 2 weeks to achieve the full effect of Botox® injections. Although uncommon, a small amount of bruising can occur.
  • It is advised that patients receiving injections discontinue the use of Aspirin, NSAIDS, Gingko Biloba, Garlic, Ginseng, St. John’s Wort, Flax Oil, Cod Liver Oil, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, or any other essential fatty acids for at least 3 days and up to 1 week before treatment to prevent bruising. Please consult with your primary care physician regarding any medications you may be taking.
  • We recommend avoiding alcohol, caffeine and cigarettes 24-48 hours before and after your treatment. These factors may increase risk of bruising and swelling.
  • It is recommended that you wait at least 2 weeks to have Botox injections performed if you have previously had cosmetic treatments with laser, ultrasound, peels or facials.
