Botulinum toxin A injections for a younger you

botox injection

Botulinum toxin A injections erase years off your face instantly. Imagine maintaining your youthful glow by only going through this procedure twice a year! Toxin injections are not only about erasing lines and wrinkles but can also provide remedies for medical conditions like hyperhidrosis, migraines, and some eye problems.

How can toxin injections help me?

Toxin injections give temporary relief, which is why this must be done twice or thrice a year. The injected area causes the muscles to tense up and contract. These injections signal the nerves to limit muscle movement.

Preparations before the toxin injection treatment

Now that you have scheduled your toxin injections treatment, during your consultation, you will be given a few reminders of what to do in preparation for your session. So, before you go for your toxin injection treatment, here are some of what you can expect to do in preparation:

  • You may be asked to steer clear of some medications before getting your treatment. Medicines like blood thinners, muscle relaxants, and some allergy medications may be off the list for one to two weeks before your injection treatment. During the consultation, inform them of your medications, including aspirin and supplements.
  • Expect to be advised to avoid drinking alcohol for at least 24 -36 hours before your treatment. Drinking alcohol will increase the chances of bruising and bleeding.
  • Avoid sun exposure as much as possible, as it will be challenging to treat sunburned skin.

What to expect after your toxin injections treatment

Now that you are done with your Botulinum toxin A injection treatment, there is after-treatment care that you need to be aware of:

  • Don’t be afraid to use the muscles on the injected site. It will help the toxin to ease into your muscles.
  • It takes 4-5 days for you to notice the change. In 14 days, you will see the full effect of your injection treatment.
  • Resist the temptation of rubbing or touching the site of your toxin injection. Avoid physical activities that will make you sweat the rest of the hours on the day of your injections.

Slight bruising and tiny bumps on the injection site are expected within a few hours after the treatment. And lastly, don’t forget to put on sunscreen when you go out every day and remind yourself of your subsequent toxin injection treatment after four to six months!
