Procedure for Botox and Filler
It is important to assess the patient, understand the concerns and clinically correlate the need for such treatment.
Detail medical history is elucidated to rule out medical conditions, allergies and bleeding tendencies.
Detail education is important so patient understands it thoroughly. This is important as it is an ongoing treatment.
– Documentation and consent
– Antiseptic preparation
– Topical anaesthetic application
– Ice packs if required
– Local anaesthesia is given for some fillers in sensitive areas such as lips.
Patient is seated comfortably and with adequate light and magnification the procedure is diligently carried out.
Botox is reconstituted and after proper dose estimation, it is injected with a tiny needle in strategic spots.
Filler comes in prefilled syringes. It can be injected using needles or blunt cannula. Blunt cannula is less painful, less traumatic and has less risk of bruising.
After Injection care
– Ice packs
– Patient is instructed to avoid massage to areas of botox treatment.
– Filler areas can be gently massaged
– Refrain from exercise for 24 hours
Follow up care is very important. Patient returns back in 7-10 days time for evaluation of result and patient satisfaction. A top up dose may be required to improve the result.
