What is BOTOX?

BOTOX® is categorized as a neuromodulator injectable containing ingredients derived from botulinum toxin type A. When administered to the small facial muscles responsible for creating wrinkles through contractions, BOTOX® can temporarily inhibit muscle activity, leading to smoother and more youthful-looking skin. By temporarily blocking the chemical signals that prompt muscle contraction, BOTOX® can soften facial expressions and diminish the appearance of aging.

How Can I Best Prepare for my BOTOX Session?

Before your BOTOX® appointment, our team will provide guidance on medications to avoid, including aspirin, ibuprofen, blood thinners, muscle relaxers, and allergy medications. If you are a smoker, it is advisable to cease smoking both before and after your BOTOX® treatment to minimize the risk of bruising.

Applying ice packs and arnica to the treatment areas before your session can also help reduce the likelihood of bruising and swelling. Light exercises such as jogging, biking, walking, or other cardiovascular activities can elevate your mood, reduce stress, and promote blood circulation before your BOTOX® injections. However, avoiding exercising within 5 hours of your appointment is recommended.
