Top Do’s for Botox & Dermal Fillers West Melbourne, FL

The Refinery knows aesthetics. We know that Botox® and dermal fillers, such as Sculptra®, Radiesse®, Restylane®, and Juvederm®, are the world’s top non-surgical cosmetic treatments for good reason. Trusted by millions every year, FDA-approved injectables help to smooth away lines and wrinkles, plump lips, and replenish lost volume for an intensely refreshed and revitalized appearance without surgery and with minimal to no downtime.

So, what are you waiting for? To get your best results, here’s a list of expert tips from the injector pros at The Refinery. Before your Botox and dermal filler session, be sure to:

Lay off the vino.

 Alcohol may calm you down, but it also has a blood-thinning effect, which will increase your risk for bruising and swelling following your treatment. Besides alcohol, be sure to avoid blood thinning substances for at least a few days (if not a full week) before your treatment, including non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDS), garlic, ginger, ginseng, ginkgo, and green tea.

Take selfies.

 This is for documentation, not vanity. It’s easy to forget what you used to look like. For this reason, we recommend taking “before” and “after” pictures so you can clearly see the improvements your injectables have made. Clearly seeing your results will help you maintain a healthy perspective so you’re less likely to overdo it with fillers. Though some women love flaunting the look of fillers, many strive for more natural-looking enhancements. Rest assured, we can help you achieve the exact you look you desire after a careful and free consultation.

Plan for downtime, even if you don’t need it.

 Yes, Botox and dermal fillers are amazing age-defying treatments that involve little to no downtime. Still, there are possible side effects to any injectable treatment, such as swelling, pinpoint bleeding, and bruising, and we would be doing you a disservice to promise you no chance of side effects. That wouldn’t be honest. We recommend scheduling your treatment for a time when you can go home and take it easy for a day or two. We definitely discourage scheduling a treatment for the day of a special event. Sometimes, swelling and bruising can occur, and if it does, we want you to feel okay with it. It’s temporary, after all, and a small price to pay for months of younger-looking radiance.

We are here to bring out your absolute best, and we can’t wait for you to experience your optimal, personally-tailored Botox and dermal filler session.
