For the last several years, Botox has consistently ranked as the most popular cosmetic non-surgical med spa procedure in the US. At the time of initial consultation, the Botox treatment expert will explain the steps involved in the injection procedure.
Botox procedure can be performed in-office, and it usually completed in a single sitting of about 20 minutes. Patients can immediately return to their normal day’s work after that. Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides Botox injections to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding communities in this part of the country.
Learn about Botox
Before a patient has decided to go ahead with the Botox injections with a qualified treatment provider, they should acquire a basic understanding about Botox by reading about it on the provider’s website or talking to other patients who have previously received Botox. Once they have a reasonable familiarity with the procedure, they can make a better decision about receiving Botox treatment.
Choose a Treatment Provider
Once the patient done their own basic research about Botox treatment, they should select a dedicated med spa that is fully equipped to provide Botox injections in a safe and professional environment. If the practice is led by an experienced and board certified physician, they would typically maintain high quality standards and best practices, and follow the latest safety protocols.
During the Botox consultation, the patient should inform the provider about relevant details such as whether they have received Botox or similar injections in the last six months, and whether they are currently taking any anti-allergy pills, sleep medications or muscle relaxants. If the patient is using blood thinners or is a smoker, they may have to wait for a few days and stop using them before Botox injections can be administered.
It will only take a few minutes to administer the Botox injections, if the treatment is performed by an experienced Botox provider. The provider will identify the targeted sites and apply a mild cleanser to disinfect the area. Anesthesia is usually not necessary, but the provider may apply a topical numbing gel in the marked sites for better patient comfort.
The provider will then use a narrow gauge micro needle to inject Botox medication directly into the specific facial muscles that are creating wrinkles and fine lines. Frown lines and outer eye areas are commonly treated with Botox. An individual muscle may require one to three injections. Discomfort will be minimal because of the tiny size of the needles.
Following the injectable procedure, the patient will receive a few simple tips for aftercare. They will be asked to avoid massaging around the treated areas for about 12 hours, and should also avoid lying down for about four hours after the Botox injections.
Direct sun exposure should be avoided for a few days in the treated areas. Rejuvenate Medical Spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for Botox injections.
