Botox, short for Botulinum Toxin, is a popular choice for those looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, providing a more youthful and refreshed look. At Flora Aesthetics & Wellness, we understand that your first Botox appointment might come with a bit of anxiety or excitement.

To ease any concerns, we’ve outlined what you can expect from the moment you walk into our Ventura clinic to when you leave with a fresh glow.

Before Your Appointment

When Preparing for your first Botox treatment, you don’t need to make any significant changes to your daily routine. However, to minimize the chances of bruising, it’s best to avoid alcohol, aspirin, and anti-inflammatory medications for a few days before your appointment.

At Flora Aesthetics & Wellness, we aim to ensure you feel comfortable and confident in your treatment choices. Therefore, during your initial consultation, we’ll discuss your aesthetic goals, examine the areas you wish to enhance and tailor a treatment plan that aligns with your desires.

Your comfort is our priority. Our skilled practitioners, led by Carlie Corse, MSN, APRN, FNP-C, an aesthetic nurse practitioner with a rich background in various medical specialties, will administer the Botox injections with precision and care. The procedure is quick, typically taking about 15-30 minutes. You may feel a slight pinch during the injection, but it’s generally minimal and well-tolerated.

We use a very fine needle for the injections, targeting specific facial muscles to achieve a natural-looking reduction in lines and wrinkles. Depending on your specific needs and goals, the areas treated may include forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines.

Immediately After the Appointment

After your Botox injections, you can expect to see minor swelling or redness at the injection sites, which will subside shortly. No significant downtime is required, so you can return to most of your everyday activities immediately. We recommend avoiding strenuous exercise for 24 hours to ensure the best results.

Post-Treatment Care

We provide detailed aftercare instructions to maximize the effects of your Botox treatment and maintain your new youthful appearance. These include avoiding rubbing the treated areas and staying upright for several hours post-treatment to prevent the Botox from migrating. We also suggest a follow-up appointment to assess the results and make any necessary adjustments to maintain your desired look.
