Botox pre-treatment instructions









       In an ideal situation it is prudent to follow some simple guidelines before treatment that can make all the

       difference between a fair result or great result, by reducing some possible side effects associated with the

       injections.  We realize this is not always possible; however, minimizing these risks is always desirable. 



  • Patient must be in good health with no active skin infections in the areas to be treated


  • Patient should not be needle phobic


  • Avoid alcoholic beverages at least 24 hours prior to treatment Alcohol may thin the blood which 

       will increase the risk of bruising. 


       Avoid anti-inflammatory / blood thinning medications ideally, for a period of two (2) weeks before

       treatment.  Medications and supplements such as Aspirin, Vitamin E, Gingo Biloba, St. John’s Wort,

       Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve, Vioxx, and other NSAIDS are all blood thinning and can increase

       the risk of bruising/swelling after injections.


       Schedule Botox® appointment at least 2 weeks prior to a special event which may be occurring,

       for example: wedding, vacation, etc. etc.  It is not desirable to have a very special event occurring

       and be bruised from an injection which could have been avoided.
