Botox is one of the most popular procedures in the United States today. At the time of the pre-treatment consultation, your Botox treatment provider will give you a chance to clarify all your doubts and concerns and ask any questions that you may have. Patients should ask these questions frankly and make decisions only when they are completely satisfied with the treatment provider’s response.
Patients should consider listing all questions before the initial consultation and carrying them to the surgeon’s office. These are a few questions you should consider asking. Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan provides Botox wrinkle removal injectable treatment to patients in Dallas, Plano, Texas, and surrounding locations.
Is the treatment provider a board certified plastic surgeon?
There are several med spas that offer Botox treatments. You should work with a provider that is properly certified and trained in administering the injections. Ideally, you should go to a practice that is led by a board certified plastic surgeon. These surgeons consider patient safety as paramount and follow the best medical practices.
What is your experience with Botox injections?
Only an experienced treatment provider with an understanding of injection techniques can identify the right injection sites. They will offer the exact Botox amount necessary for treating the particular concern. It’s critical to choose a qualified and experienced Botox injection provider to minimize your risk of side effects.
What kind of advance preparation should I undertake?
Botox doesn’t require any specific preparation before the injections. However, if you are a smoker, you would be asked to avoid it for a few days before the treatment. Your dermatologist may ask you to not use blood thinners for a few days as well.
Is Botox treatment painful?
If you are a first-time Botox patient, you may be concerned about the pain and discomfort that the injection would cause at the treatment site. Your dermatologist will give you clear information about these aspects of the treatment. They will discuss various options to reduce the discomfort, such as by using topical numbing cream.
Is Botox injection a lunch hour procedure?
Working professionals can get Botox injections in the middle of a workday. You don’t need to suffer any disruptions to your busy schedule. You can resume work after the procedure. This is why Botox is also called the ‘lunch hour’ procedure by many people and it has nothing to do with eating a salad or a roast beef sandwich.
Does Botox cost a lot?
Botox treatment is not covered by the average health insurance if the injections are provided for reducing the early signs of anti-aging. This is why patients need to have complete clarity about estimated costs. You should compare the benefits and cost of Botox with that of other noninvasive procedures before making a final decision.
How long does the results of Botox last?
Results of Botox are temporary in nature. Patients should understand the longevity of the outcome and its estimated sustainability before undergoing the treatment. You should also ask the surgeon whether you require repetitive treatments in the future for extending benefits.
