What Can I Expect At My First Botox Appointment In Ellicott City MD?

Botox is one of the most requested cosmetic services at Clear Skin For You. If you are looking to get Botox for the first time and have some questions, like what is Botox? and what can I expect at my first botox appointment in Ellicott City MD?, then read on.


What is Botox?


Botox is a FDA-approved neurotoxin injected into targeted facial muscles. Botox treatments limit the movement of the muscles resulting in fewer fine lines and wrinkles. The most common areas treated with Botox are the forehead lines, between the eyebrows (commonly referred to as the “11’s”), and crow’s feet around the eyes.


Is Botox Right For Anyone?


Botox is a great cosmetic treatment for anyone looking to smooth wrinkles on his/her face. Both men and women are starting Botox treatments in their mid to late 20s for wrinkle prevention.

How Long Does My First Botox Appointment Take?


Botox treatment sessions generally take about 30 minutes, but sometimes more time is needed if several areas are being treated at the same time.


What Can I Expect At My First Botox Appointment In Ellicott City MD?


Before your Botox treatment your Botox injection specialist, Danielle LeClair NP, will discuss your concerns and cosmetic treatment goals to make sure Botox injections are the right treatment for you. A thorough health history will be obtained. Next, she will examine your skin, facial structure, and muscle movement.


The Botox treatment is easy. Areas will be prepped with alcohol and several injections with a very fine needle will be done in the targeted muscles. There is only slight discomfort for a few seconds at the injection sites. Even with a dozen injections or so, patients tolerate the treatment very well.


Immediately after the injections you may notice a little swelling and redness. This is normal and usually subsides in a few minutes.


How Long Will It Take To See My Results From Botox?


It may take about 7-10 days to see the full effects of your first Botox treatment.


How Long Will My Results Last?


Every patient is different but results from Botox treatments generally last 3-4 months.


What Are My Limitations Afterwards?


There are very few limitations after Botox treatments. You may return to work, pick up your kids from school, or meet your friends for dinner. It is advised that you sit upright for 4 hours after your Botox treatment, limit strenuous activity (like running or heavy lifting) for 24 hours, and limit your alcohol intake for 24 hours after your Botox treatments.


Botox offers amazing anti-aging results, but only if you get your Botox treatment from an experienced injector. Danielle LeClair, NP will answer your question: what can I expect at my first Botox appointment in Ellicott City MD? Schedule a free consultation today by calling 410-870-8225.
