As top injectors in Orlando of Botox and Juvederm products by Allergan for the past 4 years our medical spa (Winter Park Laser & Anti-Aging Center) we have learned that “no downtime” procedures are what all clients want. The trend and need for non-surgical cosmetic procedures desired by men and women is only increasing as more people have highly demanding work and social lives that leave them with little time for bruising, redness, swelling or bleeding caused by surgical procedures such as face-lifts. Thus the trend for “liquid face-lifts” utilizing dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Botox are gaining popularity. The #1 hesitation I hear at our Orlando medical spa from clients is “I don’t want any downtime or for people to know I’ve had something done.” So here are our expert tips on avoiding downtime with Botox and Juvederm injections.
Top 3 Ways to Avoid downtime with Botox Cosmetic & Juvederm Injections:
#1 Find a gentle Injector
It is important to find a skilled and gentle injector. Simply because a physician, PA, or ARNP has a certificate does not make them an expert or a good injector. It is like surgery-some are better than others. So ask your friends, and read reviews to find a reliable and gentle injector in your area that will not bruise you. I have hired many injectors and personally find that women tend to be more gentle and artistic at injecting Botox and Juvederm than men-but that is my opinion.
#2 Take Arnica tablets or use Arnica gel
Arnica is a great homeopathic remedy and preventative supplement to minimize and prevent bruising from Botox and Juvederm injections. Arnica is an herb that grows in Europe and the U.S. It’s often used as a skin treatment for bruises, aches, and pains.
#3 Avoid anything that could thin your blood 7 days prior to treatment
Just like any other trauma, you will bleed more with aesthetic injectables if you have thin blood. Because of this it is best you avoid anti-coagulants such as aspirin, vitamin e, advil, IBprofen, and alcohol. This will minimize your chance of bruising.
