There may not yet be a way to stop ageing, but Botox treatments are the next best thing. As we get older and the skin loses its elasticity, wrinkles begin to form. The skin loses some of its youthful appearance, and we feel less at ease with our bodies. Botox injections can relieve some of the anxiety by smoothing out wrinkles and restoring vitality to weary skin.

If you’re looking forward to your first Botox experience, these tips will help you have a successful Botox treatment:

Choose Your Provider Carefully

Nowadays, it appears as if everyone is offering Botox. The number one rule in Botox treatment is to choose your injector carefully. Botox can have amazing results, but only when used correctly. At Smile Spa, you can rely on the promise that you will be treated by a registered, experienced and fully trained practitioner using premium products. Our products are tested and fully approved, sourced from globally renowned manufacturers. Moreover, all our clinics are registered with the Care Quality Commission. This means you can look forward to a safe and reliable treatment, with the promise of excellent results.

Understand What Botox Can and Can’t Do

Botox is potentially great on its own, but often, it works best with other anti-ageing treatments such as dermal fillers. Botox focuses on the overactive muscles in the upper part of the face, while dermal fillers work in other areas. You achieve the highest quality results when treatments are combined to address the entire face. Speak to our practitioners about your problem areas, and we’ll create the most suitable treatment plan for you.

Follow Your Treatment Schedule

Botox is temporary, and if you love the results of your first treatment, you’ll need to return for follow-up injections. Make sure to return within the suggested period of time to maintain the results and keep looking your best. Botox results can last about four months. Relax and let our provider create a treatment schedule for you.

Worry Not if You Don’t See Immediate Results

First-time Botox patients often worry when they don’t see results right away. Not to worry, it takes a week or two for your wrinkles to visibly soften. Be patient; the results are coming.

Remember that More is not Necessarily Better

‘If a little Botox is great, then more Botox must be astounding’. Incorrect. A bit of Botox goes a long way, so it’s often recommended to have lighter treatment for your first time. Your practitioner can advise more whenever desired and suitable. As past treatments show, the best Botox results come from the right amount – that’s where the knowledge and training of our practitioners come in.

Practise Aftercare

Another great advantage of Botox is it’s a no-downtime treatment.  This means you can come in for an injection and resume your daily activities, whether it’s family or work, without interruption. You will, however, be asked to avoid exercise within the first two days of treatment. Some patients apply makeup to the injection sites to hide the minor swelling or redness. We can provide specific instructions for aftercare that you can follow.
