Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Since 2000, there has been an 819% increase in the number of Anti-wrinkle treatments. These minimally-
invasive cosmetic procedures are on the rise compared to cosmetic plastic surgery because they require little

or no downtime, are affordable, and give excellent results.

Botox was first invented in 1977 for treating problems with the eye muscle. Doctors started using Botox for
cosmetic reasons in 1996 and have been on the rise since then.
It's not just celebrities that use it, either. Nor is it reserved for women of a certain age. Today, almost 20% of
Botox users are between 30-39 years old.

Before you get these types of injections, you must ensure that you follow specific instructions for best results
and to avoid any adverse side effects. Read on to learn all about pre and post Botox care for visibly younger,
smoother skin.

• 2 Weeks Before Botox

Make sure you schedule your Botox appointment at least 2 weeks prior to any special occasions such as a
vacation or a wedding. Results from Botox injections and dermal fillers take around 4-7 days to appear.
You should also avoid blood thinning medications and anti-inflammatory medicines for the 2 weeks leading up
to your treatment. This is because blood thinning medications increases the likelihood of you experiencing
swelling or bruising after injections. Discuss with your doctor or practitioner any concerns you may have. It
may not be prudent for you to stop taking certain prescription medication.

• 24 Hours Before Botox

Alcohol has a blood thinning side effect. Do not drink any alcohol for at least 24 hours before your treatment.
On the morning of your procedure, ensure you eat a healthy, nourishing breakfast. If your appointment is later
in the day, make sure you eat close to your appointment. This will prevent you from becoming faint or
lightheaded during your treatment.
