Getting Ready For Your First Botox Treatment
Help minimize bruising at the site of the Botox injections
So, is this your first time signing up for a treatment? Are you a little unsure and nervous, since you don’t exactly know what to expect from the procedure? This is a natural state of mind to have before the treatment and, understandably, you’d feel that way. Not everyone has the guts to go into a clinic knowing their face is about to get a few injections.
But if you follow a few steps, you’ll find that Botox NYC clinics' favorite anti-aging treatment, has reached that mantle for a reason: it’s really not as scary as some people would make you believe. Sure, it’s not the most comfortable thought to be contemplating, but getting ready to have Botox injected into your face can actually be an easier process if you approach it properly, with the right mentality in mind.
Which is why the fine folks over at MiracleFace MedSpa have given a few tips on how to prepare for your first or pretty much any Botox treatment to have an easier time and to get the most out of your appointment. They’ve compiled a list of all the things they recommend their clients do before arriving at the clinic to get treated and we’ve picked out a few of the most important ones you really need to do.
Witness the Magic
There are tons and tons of bloggers, journalists and other content creators who have recorded their experience getting treated with Botox on camera. You can find many videos of individuals going to a clinic and actually recording the entire process and sharing it with the internet.
Many of the people who watch these videos, do it out of sheer interest, as they may have always wondered how Botox is administered. But these videos are a perfect place to start for anyone who is a first-timer and wants to see what the procedure is going to be like.
It’s recommended that you watch these videos, as not only do you get to see how the treatment is performed beforehand, but everything is also meticulously explained, with a whole lot of detail, which gives you comfort in understanding what each step during the procedure is for. Basically, the greater knowledge you have of something, the less scary it is.
So, find a video of your choice, perhaps even from your favorite fashion and beauty blogger, and watch their video to see just how the procedure is done. You’ll be surprised at how much more comforting it’ll be to see it for yourself and this means you won’t be surprised by anything during your own treatment.
Make the Big Decisions
Obviously, you’re not going to tell the clinic specialists what you want to be treated as they already have the needle ready. You speak with the doctors and the clinic specialists before the appointment, as you tell them what you want from the treatment and the kind results you are expecting to see.
So, it’s very important to make the big decisions at home, before even talking to the clinics. Think about what bothers you while looking at the mirror, what you’d like to see done differently, how would changing something benefit you or your self-image, and so on. The more questions you ask yourself and the earlier you do this, the easier it’ll be for you to decide on what you want to treat and how.
The worst thing you can be is undecided and unsure about what you’re signing up for. So if there is one big responsibility that you have or at least one of the biggest, is to really dig deep and understand what you need and want from the Botox treatment.
Talk to Others
Your best source of information is the people you know who’ve gone through the treatment themselves. Sure you can look up testimonials online or client reviews, but why go through the trouble of trusting strangers on the web, when you can just find someone you know personally or a friend of a friend, who’s gone through the treatment themselves.
No one is going to give you a more clear understanding of what exactly happens and what to expect than the people you know personally. Find someone who has experience with Botox and see what they have to share with you on the matter and how the information they pass on to you could prevent you from being unpleasantly surprised during the procedure
And Most Important of All
Even if you don’t bother with any of the previous tips on how to make your first appointment easier, then this one is pretty much a responsibility you have to take upon yourself. Talk to your doctor.
Now, this doesn’t imply that Botox isn’t safe, no quite the contrary: Botox is one of the safest commercially available cosmetic treatments on the market. Very rarely does anything go not according to plan and even then, everything is very easy to fix by the clinic.
However, just because it’s safe for the majority of the population doesn’t mean that absolutely anyone can go through the treatment. You never know what your body will or won’t allow, so the absolute least you could do is consult your medical professional and get their thoughts on the matter. This is something you absolutely don’t want to avoid doing.
And As Always…
...You can talk to the MiracleFace MedSpa staff and ask them all the questions you have on Botox, how it’s performed and what you should expect from the procedure, both during and after it is done.
Check out their Botox NYC page for more details on the treatment and see for yourself how even the tiniest bit of research can help you in getting through your first Botox procedure. You’ll see just how smoothly it goes by when you know what you’re getting yourself into.
