Botulinum Toxin (Botox) Recovery

shutterstock 89530177 300x230 - Botulinum Toxin (Botox) RecoveryBotox received FDA approval for the cosmetic reduction of fine lines in specific facial areas in 2002. Ever since then, this non-surgical cosmetic dermatology treatment has been the world’s most sought-after facial anti-aging procedure.

A primary benefit of Botox is that it can be administered in-office within a few minutes. This treatment involves little to no downtime. During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will explain to the various patient aspects of Botox injectable. Busy moms and working people particularly choose Botox as it does not involve recovery time.

Suncoast Skin Solutions, led by board certified dermatologist Dr. Christopher Ewanowski, provides Botox to suitable candidates in Tampa, Brandon, Lutz, Seminole, Riverview, Brooksville, Winter Haven, Daytona Beach, Largo, St. Petersburg, Ocala, The Villages Central Florida, Florida, and other towns and neighborhoods in the glorious Sunshine State.

‘Lunch Time’ Procedure

Only a certified Botox provider should administer Botox injections for safe and desirable results. When an expert performs the Botox treatment, it will only take between 15 and 20 minutes to safely administer the injections. The patient will not require any particular pre-procedure preparation or post-treatment care.

One treatment session is typically sufficient to attain the desired outcomes with Botox. It is popularly known as a “lunch-time” medical spa treatment as working professionals can even make an appointment to receive Botox injections during their lunch hour from work. They can return to work immediately after receiving the treatment.

The Botox treatment provider will recommend the patient to not lie down for about four hours after the procedure. In this duration, the Botox meds will spread uniformly to the targeted sites. The patient should avoid massaging or rubbing the site of the injection for around 12 hours.

They should not undertake any vigorous exercises for a period of 24 hours after the treatment as well. Other than these precautions, the patient can conduct their routine activities at their workplace or home.

Temporary Side Effects

Botox injections are administered without any incisions or cuts. However, the treatment may lead to minor inflammation, bruising or redness in the treatment area. Certain patients may experience a slight headache for some time.

A majority of the patients will not need any particular treatment for the side-effects. These effects should subside in around 2 to 3 days. The patient can usually apply makeup a day after the procedure to cover any inflammation or bruising due to the needles.

The treatment provider will advise the patient to avoid rigorous exercises and workouts for 1 or 2 days after the Botox injectable treatment. The patient should not take blood thinners such as aspirin for around 2 to 3 days pre and post Botox injections.

Results

The results of the treatment will be immediately noticeable. After one week, the complete outcome of Botox will establish as the inflammation and bruising fade away. Outcomes will often sustain for 3 to 4 months after Botox treatment, and the patient may choose to receive repeat treatments in future to increase the longevity of the results.
