Several days before

  • Since side-effects are to be expected and can vary depending on which area Botox is being injected, taking these steps prior to the procedure will help in bringing down the chances of their occurrence:
  • Avoid alcohol consumption for at least two days before. Alcohol can thin the blood making it easier for swelling and bruising to develop.
  • Refrain from using medications as well as herbal supplements 
  • Quit smoking. This may be difficult for you. But because it has several adverse effects on the healing process, you must steer clear of it. We would discuss this with you at the initial appointment. 
  • Tell your dermatologist if you have any health condition, skin infection, or allergy as this may cause severe bruising or swelling. 
  • It is also important to tell the provider if you are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • In addition to changes in routine activities, there are some appliances, and medications, that you are encouraged to buy in advance to help with the side effects. At Dynamic clinic, Dr. Zein generally recommends patients buy pain killers, moisturizers, arnica, cold compressors, etc.

The days leading to the procedure is the time you want to feel happy and secure and to ensure that you and the skin expert are on the same page. There is certainly no reason to not discuss any insecurities, fears, and worries you have about the treatment.
