Medical Information For Your Consultation

Before Wrinkle-Relaxing Injections

botox informationWhether you are contemplating cosmetic injections for the first time or an old hand, it’s always worth bearing in mind that this is a medical procedure and that botulinum toxin is a prescription-only medication. 

As such, there are a few important things which you’ll need to tell your doctor when you visit for a consultation or treatment.

Medical Information for BOTOX®

This information is provided by Allergan, manufacturers of BOTOX®, on their USA website https://www.botoxcosmetic.com, which contains lots of useful information and photos.

Allergan recommend the four things to tell your doctor prior to BOTOX® treatment are:

  1. All medications taken – including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal products. Tell your doctor if you have been treated with a botulinum toxin product in the last 4 months and whether you experienced any allergies or side effects.
  2. Medical conditions – including any muscle or nerve conditions such as Motor Neurone Disease. Tell your specialist if you have had any swallowing or breathing problems in the past.
  3. Surgery on your face – whether this is planned or has already taken place. Also tell your BOTOX® doctor if you have weakness in your forehead muscles, have trouble raising your eyebrows, or have drooping eyelids.
  4. Pregnancy/breastfeeding – you must tell the doctor if you are pregnant, planning a pregnancy, breastfeeding or planning to nurse

A good medical practitioner will always carry out a detailed medical history prior to treatment. If there’s something else you feel you should mention or want to tell the doctor, go ahead.

At Quinn  Clinics, all BOTOX® treatments are carried out by fully qualified and aesthetically trained doctors:
