So, you are considering BOTOX®. This popular injection gets rid of wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles in the target areas. This cosmetic procedure has gained popularity over the years thanks to the excellent outcome, minimal downtime, and near non-existent side effects – if the procedure is done correctly, of course. Even so, it is not unusual for questions to swirl in your mind before checking in for the procedure.
First of all, if you’re considering this treatment, it’s good to keep in mind that BOTOX® can be used to address different issues. For example, it can be used in the area around your eyes in order to target crow’s feet, and it can be used on the forehead to target the horizontal lines that tend to appear there. It can also be used on younger individuals for preventive purposes.
Pricing is another thing to consider. If the price is unrealistically low for the product, you may be about to pay for a diluted or counterfeit product. The other explanation for low pricing could be that the product was purchased from a supplier in a country like the United Kingdom or Canada where government regulations keep pharmaceutical prices substantially lower. Not only is it against the law (with very few exceptions) for medical practitioners to deliberately purchase medications outside the United States for use on patients within the U.S, but manufacturers also contend that unauthorized suppliers may compromise the safety and effectiveness of an injectable.
What to Avoid Prior to Your Treatment
Most filler and BOTOX® providers advise against use of anticoagulants such as ibuprofen and aspirin before the treatment. This is because these medications inhibit blood clotting while increasing the risk of bruising. As such, make sure to be open and honest during your consultation with our professional so that they can determine whether or not the treatment is right for you.
