At our anti-aging clinic in Orlando, we offer clients Botox® injection treatment. While Botox® injection treatment is a great and fairly simple way to help get rid of wrinkles and reduce the signs of aging, it is still a medical procedure. Before you decide to proceed with Botox® injections, it is important to do your homework and ensure that they are a safe option for you.
If you needed surgery, you would take your time to find an experienced doctor that you trusted to handle the operation. You need to find a doctor who is certified, as well as skilled and experienced at administering Botox® injections. This makes all of the difference between a successful and an unsuccessful Botox® procedure. Dr. Silva is a doctor you can trust.
While Botox® injections may not seem like a major procedure, it is still important for your doctor to know as much as possible about your medical history. It is important to be honest with them and to disclose any pre-existing medical conditions you have that may affect the procedure, even if it means you cannot receive Botox® injections.
No Blood Thinners
After you have been approved for your Botox® injections, it is important to refrain from taking blood thinning medications at least a week before your procedure. Medications such as Aspirin, Ibuprofen, and Excedrin all thin the blood. Avoiding these medications before your procedure will help prevent bruising after you have received the injections.
If you have any questions regarding Botox® injections and how they work, please do not hesitate to contact our anti-aging clinic. We are happy to address any questions or concerns you may have.
