Botox has become a cultural norm and it seems everyone is getting it these days; however, those getting Botox injections in Tampa are keeping their procedure very hush hush. The fact that no one wants to discuss their Botox experience is unfortunate, because the scarcity of information leads to many misconceptions and unguided decisions. The Tampa Botox specialists at Elite Facial Plastic Surgery have come up with this video guide to getting quality Tampa Botox injections that will shed light on the truth on how to make Botox last longer, avoid looking like Jocelyn Wildenstein, tips for minimizing bruising, and other helpful tidbits of Botox information.
Here’s the Botox injectable in Tampa specialists run down:
How to get Botox injections, without looking like you have had any.
Elite Facial Plastic Surgery recommends always getting less than you think you need. Once everything has settled and you can see the true results, you can always come back to our Tampa Botox facility for a follow up if you decide you want more. You never want to overdo it. At Elite Facial Plastic Surgery we can always add but never take away.
How to reduce the risk of bruising.
After you have received Botox injections, you will want to rest and avoid high intensity activities such as exercising. We prefer you skip the gym for the day, not because it is dangerous or bad for the Botox results, but because it will increase the risk of bruising.
Our Botox specialists recommend avoiding aspirin, Motrin, Aleve, ibuprofen, fish oil supplements, and omega 3s for a week before coming into our facility. All of these medications and supplements thin the blood which makes bruising more likely.
A proactive step you can take to avoid bruising it to take Arnica tabs; they provide all-natural help for bruising and swelling, simply take the supplement a few days before and after you receive Botox treatment in Tampa.
How to make your Botox last longer.
Find a doctor that is experienced in administering Botox, and your results can last longer than six months. You should also get Tampa Botox treatments regularly. Have Botox sessions at regular intervals; this will cause the muscles to weaken, making the results last longer. Just make sure you are not getting them too frequently as your muscles will become resistant. Ideally, 12 weeks apart is a good timeframe.
Avoid applying any masks, scrubs, exfoliators, and toners for a week since it can disrupt the Botox injections. You should also avoid the sun since it boosts blood circulation that would cause the Botox to disperse faster than normal. Studies suggest that moving the muscles that you have just had injected may actually help Botox results last longer.
How much Botox you should really use.
Our Tampa double board-certified cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Dominic Castellano, states that actual units vary from patient to patient, and we use lighter doses in younger patients. Our doctors typically use around 10 units in a patient’s forehead.
