Things to Think about Before Getting Botox

Botox is a treatment that is becoming increasingly popular in todays world. If you can make yourself looking to feel a little more refreshed, or you think that you would like to look a bit younger and botox can do that for you, then why not? We have put together a list of things that you may want to think about before you get botox.

 Find the Right Provider for you

There are lots of Botox London based specialists, so it’s important that you find the right one for you.  Make sure that you check their website or social media channels for before and after pictures, and for any client testimonials.  By looking at the pictures, you will be able to see if you think that they are too obvious, or too subtle.  You can also get a good idea of the company values and personality from their site and social channels. 

Do your Own Research on Ageing Process

Before you go for a consultation, make sure you go with as much information as possible. You need to know why you are looking for this procedure.  Is it because you want to fix something that is annoying you?  Is there a special occasion coming up? It could be that there are skincare solutions that could assist you in what you are looking for – and could be a consideration before getting botox.

Know what your End Goal is

Think about the treatment you want most, and what that would be.  Some people can think about getting botox, fillers, and lots of other things all at the same time.  Think about one treatment and stick to that.  You could go in to ask about issues with your forehead for exampleand get injections there, that could cause issues elsewhere.

How Well Do your Family Age?

You know what they say, you will end up looking like your Mother! There is some truth to that, there is genetics involved in terms of how well you age.  If you have a look at your parents, that should give you an idea of what some of your priorities should be.  It could be that they have bad crows feet – which then in turn, you might want to address and speak to the clinician about.

Think about the Upkeep you are Willing to do

Your treatment plan will also depend on the upkeep that you are willing to do.  For example, if you simply want to look refreshed – it could be that you need botox only 3-4 times a year, but if you want to effectively stop the aging process – you may need more regular visits than that.  Explain this clearly on your consultation to get the correct plan for you.

If you are considering getting botox make sure you go to your appointment informed and give the clinician a good idea of what your goals are for the treatment, so they can advise you accordingly.
