During the pre-treatment consultation for Botox injections, the patient will have a chance to ask questions and clarify all their concerns. A committed treatment provider will answer all their questions and address their concerns in a satisfactory way.
If the patient has multiple questions to ask, they should ideally enlist these questions beforehand and carry this list to the treatment provider’s office for the initial consultation.
Reger Vein and Skin Specialists, led by Dr. Gregg Reger, provides a wide range of medical spa services to patients in Spring, TX, The Woodlands, and surrounding communities.
Are you a Certified Botox Provider?
Ideally, the patient should work with a highly trained and certified Botox injection provider. Administering Botox involves the use of tiny narrow gauge injections, and the drug must be delivered in targeted locations in precise volumes.
Do you have Previous Experience in Administering Botox Injections?
It is advisable to choose an experienced Botox provider as they would know precisely how much Botox medication would be necessary to treat the length and depth of the patient’s facial lines and wrinkles. Working with an experienced provider minimizes the chances of wrongly administering the drug.
Do I need to Prepare for the Botox Procedure in Advance?
In general, the patient will not need to undertake any specific preparations before their Botox injectable treatment. However, if the patient smokes or drinks, they will need to avoid doing so for one or two weeks. In case the patient takes blood thinners, they will have to discontinue their use for a similar duration.
Are the Injections Painful?
A majority of patients receiving Botox injections for the first time are concerned about whether Botox injections in facial muscles will cause any major pain or discomfort. The Botox provider will offer them assurance on these issues, and inform them whether they intend to use any topical numbing cream to reduce the associated discomfort further.
Will I need to take leave from Work to undergo Botox Injections?
Working professionals may prefer to schedule their Botox procedure in a manner that does not impact their day’s work. The injection provider may schedule the treatment during their lunch hour, and they will be able to return to work right after their Botox procedure which typically takes less than 20 to 30 minutes to complete.
What are the Estimated Costs of the Botox Treatment?
Patients will likely not receive insurance coverage for their Botox injectable treatment. For this reason, they should seek complete clarity on the costs and discuss this aspect in-depth with the provider. Patients should also understand whether combining Botox with another non-surgical treatment would make them eligible for a special discount or package rate.
How long will the Outcome last?
Patients should have complete clarity about the sustainability of Botox anti-aging treatment. A responsible provider will explain the potential sustainability of the treatment outcomes to the patient. The patient can prolong the benefits with repetitive treatments in the future, scheduled in discussion with the injection provider.
