Is it Safe to Lay Down After BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections?
Although aging is a natural process that comes with many benefits, the effects on our skin may be challenging to reconcile. Thinning skin, volume loss, wrinkles, and fine lines can diminish a once youthful appearance and glowing complexion. At Gard Wellness Solutions, our expert team serves patients throughout West Palm Beach, Orlando, Miami, Boca Raton, Jupiter, and Wellington, FL to meet their cosmetic needs. We are qualified to administer precise wrinkle relaxer injections, including BOTOX, to help individuals regain their natural beauty lost with time.
What is BOTOX?
BOTOX, or botulinum toxin, is an FDA-approved neurotoxin used for a wide variety of medical and cosmetic purposes. At Gard Wellness Solutions, our team utilizes BOTOX as a cosmetic wrinkle relaxer injection to smooth fine lines, wrinkles, and creases that form with age. The chemical compounds of BOTOX block neural signals to minimize contractions of muscles used to create facial expressions. By decreasing muscle contractions, the skin overlying the muscles has the opportunity to heal, creating a smooth finish.
Am I an ideal candidate for BOTOX?
Both men and women can be candidates for BOTOX cosmetic injections if they meet certain criteria, including:
Looking for nonsurgical options to minimize fine lines and wrinkles
Have realistic expectations about BOTOX results
Are in good overall health
Patients who have certain blood clotting disorders, dermatological conditions, immunological disorders, or are pregnant may not qualify for BOTOX injections. One of our expert team members will collect your personal history and listen to your individual goals to help determine if you can safely benefit from BOTOX injections.
What is a BOTOX treatment like?
BOTOX cosmetic injections can be completed within the comforts of one of our private treatment rooms at Gard Wellness Solutions. Each injection takes approximately 5 – 10 minutes to complete, and multiple injections can be made during one session. Patients generally feel a mild stinging sensation with each injection. Once the skin is properly sanitized, and treatments are administered, patients can leave our clinic and resume normal daily activities.
Is it safe to lay down after a BOTOX injection?
Our team recommends avoiding lying down or bending forward during the first few hours after treatment to reduce the risk of spreading the toxin through the skin, compromising the results, and increasing the risk of discoloration. Patients should expect to be a little tender or sore after treatment, but this usually resolves within a day or two.
How often should I receive BOTOX cosmetic injections?
BOTOX treatments are temporary and results last a few months. Our team usually recommends regular maintenance appointments to lengthen dermatological outcomes. Consult with one of our expert team members after your initial treatment session to schedule future follow-ups.
