///5 things to ask before you have botox

5 things to ask before you have botox

Q. Am I being treated by a board certified dermatologist, plastic surgeon, facial plastic surgeon or oculoplastic surgeon?
A. The core specialties receive specific training beginning in their residency and in continuing education, including anatomy and technique, leading to the safest and most effective treatment.

Q. What brands of neuromodulator do you use, and which do you think is right for me and why?
A. Botox, Dysport, Xeomin are all FDA approved neuromodulators. Most offices that perform a large number of procedures have more than one brand of botulinum toxin. Some patients find that one brand lasts longer for them than another. Your office should have more than one option for you.

Q. What methods will you use to minimize pain and bruising?
A. Ice packs used during the procedure, using the finest needles (32 G), and having a gentle touch can help minimize the discomfort of the injections.

Q. What are the most common side effects and what are you doing to minimize them?
Make sure your physician gives you the option to come back in 2 weeks if you have asymmetry, if your eyebrows raise up to high making you look quizzical, or if you think the effect on your motion lines isn’t what you expected. Experts treat each patient individually not in a cookie cutter fashion to get the best results but always appreciate the opportunity to tweak results to make them perfect.

Q. What kind of room and position will I be treated in?
A. Botox is a medical procedure and should not be performed at a party or in a salon’s rigid chairs. A medical exam chair that can tilt and recline in a medical office provides the best and safest environment, particularly for patients who tend to feel faint during procedures or at the sight of a needle.

Have your neuromodulator (Botox, Dysport or Xeomin) procedure performed by the board certified dermatologists at Krauss Dermatology for the best results with the utmost safety and comfort.  We are in the top 500 practices in the nation according to Allergan, the makers of Botox, 2016 and 2017.
