Maximize Your Botox Benefits With Clear Communication
Most aesthetic experts agree, that when Botox is done well, it provides a subtle enhancement and a refreshed appearance. However, consistently achieving desired Botox outcomes every 3-4 months, requires a highly skilled and experienced injector as well as effective Botox management on the part of the patient.
Keep reading to learn how to maximize your Botox benefits and get natural results from each treatment.
What Are the Botox Basics?
Botox Cosmetic is the brand name for botulinum toxin type A and falls into a class of products known as neuromodulators. These injectables work to smooth forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet by blocking nerve signals and inhibiting contraction of targeted facial muscles.
Botox injections take approximately 10-15 minutes and require zero downtime. What’s more, patients can see relaxation of wrinkles and lines within 3-5 days, and treatment benefits last an average of 3-4 months.
Why is Communication Key to Successful Botox Management?
While Botox requires an in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy, extensive experience performing cosmetic injections, and an artistic eye, it’s not an exact science.
Therefore, even in the hands of an extremely skilled injector like Dr. Hayre, Botox management necessitates clear communication between patient and provider.
Consequently, after each Botox treatment, patients should carefully consider what they liked and didn’t like about their most recent set of injections.
For example, if you love the subtle lift in your brows or the openness of your eyes, be sure to share this at the start of your next appointment.
Additionally, if there is something that didn’t work as well for you, you should clearly describe your concern.
This is especially true if the issue was due to Botox with a previous provider. That way, your new injector has all of the details necessary to help you achieve your treatment goals.
What’s the Best Approach to Maximize Botox Benefits?
According to aesthetic experts, we have positive and negative lines on our faces. Those that are positive, like smile lines, should simply be softened with Botox.
While negative lines, like the ones between the eyebrows that express anger, should be corrected. So, if all lines in the face are treated with Botox the same way, patients can end up with a frozen look.
That being said, effective Botox management often targets overactive muscles with stronger doses of Botox, while using a more diluted composition on others.
