The skill level and injecting strategies of the provider definitely makes a difference. Spa Black guarantees you a top-notch level of expertise based on our experience in the field. Therefore, side effects might happen as a result of your body’s response to the intake and your overall health around that time. Here is how you can prevent issues after getting BOTOX® at our med spa in San Antonio.

Before the Treatment

There are some things you’ll want to avoid. For example, you should discontinue the use of certain medications before the procedure. You’ll also want to avoid supplements with blood-thinning effects. These include garlic, ginger, quai, red clover, fish oil, green tea, ginkgo, ginseng, Biloba and Vitamin E. You should stop taking these supplements a week before the treatment.

After the Treatment

As you probably know, BOTOX® is a non-surgical procedure. As such, there’s no real recovery involved. One of the main things is to avoid exercise for a short period of time. Avoid exercises because it increases blood flow and pressure in the body, yet the capillaries need minimal blood flow to repair fast.

As much as there is no guaranteed way to avoid side effects about getting BOTOX® injections, the above tips can reduce the possibility of them appearing. Of course, our team at Spa Black can provide you with all of the information you’ll need before, during, and after getting BOTOX® at our state-of-the-art med spa in San Antonio.
