Navigating the World of Botox - What to Expect Before, During, and After Treatment at UR ROYALTY MED SPA

Before Botox Treatment:

To ensure a seamless, comfortable, and transformative experience, we provide a clear roadmap for your Botox treatment. Before your appointment, make sure to:

1. Communicate openly with your doctor about your medical history and desired results.

2. Disclose any recent Botox injections in the past 4 months.

3. Mention if you've had recent surgery, breast augmentation, or any other cosmetic procedures.

4. Inform your doctor if you are taking muscle relaxants, allergy medications, sleeping aids, or prescription blood thinners.

During Botox Treatment:

During the treatment, you can expect the following steps:

1. The areas to be treated will be thoroughly cleaned with an antiseptic solution.

2. To ensure comfort, a topical anesthetic cream, ice, or vibration may be used to numb the treatment areas.

3. Using a fine needle, your plastic surgeon will carefully inject small amounts of Botox in a specific pattern.

4. Typically, there will be 4-5 injections in the forehead and 2-3 injections around each eye.

5. Pressure may be applied to the injection sites to minimize bleeding and bruising.

6. You will remain awake throughout the process, usually lying upright on the exam table for a short period.

After Botox Procedure:

To ensure a quick recovery and achieve the best possible results, follow these recommendations for aftercare:

1. Avoid lying down for 3-4 hours after the treatment.

2. Stay away from pools, hot tubs, or saunas for the rest of the day.

3. Refrain from strenuous activity for the next several days.

4. Take acetaminophen for any discomfort. Avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, or similar painkillers to minimize bruising.

5. Practice facial movements like smiling, frowning, raising your eyebrows, and squinting to work your facial muscles.

6. Wait at least 24 hours before having a facial, touching, rubbing, or massaging the treated areas.

7. Mild bruising may occur but should subside within approximately one week.

Follow-Up Care and Long-Term Results:

Remember that the full effects of Botox may take 3-7 days to become apparent and will be complete after about two weeks. To track your progress, we recommend taking photos just before and immediately after treatment.

Throughout the weeks following your procedure, keep in mind:

1. Any small marks or bumps will disappear within a few hours after treatment.

2. Mild and temporary bruising is possible but should fade away soon.
