Visiting a medspa for your first Botox treatment can be a little overwhelming if you’re not prepared. Before you schedule or attend your first Botox injection appointment, here’s what you should know.
How Long Does It Take?
If you’re on a tight schedule or have trouble sitting still for long periods of time, we’ve got good news about your first Botox appointment. In most cases, the first appointment only takes about 20 minutes, so you can get your injections and go about the rest of your day.
When Will I See Results?
We know Botox treatments are all about the results, so you might be wondering how quickly the injection takes effect. According to the Mayo Clinic, Botox injection results may be visible after one to three days, but it could take up to a week for you to get your desired results. Don’t worry if your injections aren’t having an effect the day after your treatment.
Is Botox Painful?
Even if you have low pain tolerance, Botox is considered a less painful and invasive procedure. A tiny needle is used to inject Botox into your skin, which means you barely feel the needle poking you. Some specialists may numb the area where Botox is being injected to further reduce pain, but you should be fine with or without a numbing agent.
Things to Avoid
You only need to avoid a few things and then you can go back to your normal daily routine for the most part. After you’re finished with your first procedure, your practitioner or medical doctor should give you some tips to help you get the best results. The general idea is that you need to be gentle on your skin after an injection. Sit upright instead of lying on your face immediately after treatment and avoid rubbing your skin or spending too much time in direct sunlight.
You don’t have to be worried about your first Botox treatment. The process is simple and relatively pain-free, and you can get back to your normal life after a short time. As long as you follow your doctor’s instructions, you will start to notice results in no time.
