Botox Injections

What Should You Expect During A Consultation For Botox Injections?Botox is an FDA cleared anti-aging injectable treatment that addresses most common signs of facial aging. This procedure is suitable for people looking to reduce the appearance of mild to moderate fine lines and wrinkles without undergoing a surgery. According to the data collected by the American Society of Plastic Surgery, Botox is one of the most popular non-surgical procedures in the United States.

Your Botox provider during the initial consultation will explain the effectiveness and usage of the treatment. Primary goal of a dedicated treatment provider is to enable patients to make enlightened decisions. Depending on your aesthetic goals, they will customize your injection plan for facial rejuvenation with Botox.

Assessing Patient Needs

Your treatment provider will determine your reasons for choosing Botox injections during the initial consultation. They will try and assess whether the visible signs of aging can be treated by Botox or not. Botox is generally recommended by treatment providers to patients that are unhappy with wrinkles and fine lines in their underlying dynamic musculature.

However, if you are seeking long-tern solutions with visible results for treating loss of facial volume and saggy facial skin, you may be recommended soft tissue dermal fillers or another suitable treatment instead of Botox. You would be informed about Botox off-label uses, potential risks, and approximate longevity of results.

Setting Expectations

Pre-treatment consultation may be used by a few injection providers to ensure the patient sets reasonable expectations from the procedure. You may be shown Botox before and after pictures to help you understand the results in a better way.

Ideal candidates are those that are satisfied with the provider’s explanations, have realistic expectations and a positive mindset. The treatment provider may also share testimonials of previous patients to provide an insight to the Botox procedure.

Determining Candidacy

During the initial consultation, your Botox provider will establish whether you are an ideal candidate or not. You will be asked about recent skin allergies and whether you have undergone any other botulinum toxin-based treatment in the last 6 months.

Your treatment provider will evaluate the droopiness of eyelids, degree of skin laxity, weakness in forehead muscles, and presence of infection in the treatment areas. Nursing and pregnant women are usually advised not to undergo the treatment. You may be recommended dermal filler injections in addition to Botox if you need more volume in the face.

Miscellaneous Instructions

Smoking patients would be asked to discontinue smoking for a few days before and after the Botox procedure. You may be asked to stop blood-thinning medications as well for a specified period. Post-treatment care instructions will be provided by the treatment provider during the initial consultation. During the Botox consultation, you should try and openly ask questions.

You should also express any concerns that you may have before making a final decision. Female cosmetic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan receives patients from Dallas, Plano, Texas, and nearby areas for Botox wrinkle reduction injectable procedure.
