Botox treatment is not complicated. It is simply a matter of having injections in the site you want to have wrinkles removed from. However, to get to the point of treatment you will need to see the doctor first and make an appointment for the treatment. It is important to take note of what the doctor tells you and be sure to apply it where necessary.

What your doctor needs to know

You will need to tell the doctor about any medical or other conditions you have and what medications you are taking, including supplements and herbal remedies. It is important for the doctor to know about such things, because many of them thin the blood and so will make bruising more likely. You will need to go off these medications before the treatment. However, if you have a medical condition you need to take medication for on a regular basis, you should consult your GP first. It is possible that you may not be able to undergo Botox treatment in this case. Be guided by your doctors in all cases.

To make-up – or not

Once your appointment is set up and you arrive for the treatment, you will find that any makeup must be removed. It would be quite okay to go in without wearing any make-up. Depending on how many units of Botox you need for your treatment and where the injection site is, you may be given topical or local anaesthetic.
