Botox with besties may sound like the perfect combination but before you head to a Botox party, there are a few things you need to know. Botox parties aren’t the safest way to banish wrinkles. Instead, come into the Santa Monica Laser and Skin Care Center for your Botox procedure.
What Is a Botox Party?
Botox parties are social gatherings that combine friends and Botox. They are typically held at someone’s house—not a medical facility—and may offer Botox treatments at a reduced price on the night of the event. Many people feel that a Botox party is a comfortable and fun way to try a new cosmetic treatment, and they assume that the risks are relatively minimal. We disagree. If you want Botox, don’t take chances. There are too many potential risks with Botox parties. Get this treatment from a doctor in a medical setting and not with friends at a party.
The Risks of Botox Parties
There are many potential risks associated with Botox parties. Here are a few:
- No Medical Records- Before getting Botox, you need an opportunity to sit down with your doctor, discuss the risks and benefits, and have any questions answered. At a Botox party, you may not have the chance to ask all of your questions and a thorough medical history may not be taken. Additionally, there may not be detailed treatment records available after treatment.
- No Knowledge of the Injector’s Skill- Your Botox results are largely dependent on the skill of your injector. Choose someone that you trust. Both Dr. Amerian and Dr. Anterasian have been administering Botox for many years. They have performed thousands of Botox treatments with consistently excellent and natural looking results.
- What If There’s an Emergency? – Medical emergencies are very rare after Botox but, should something happen, you’ll want to be in a medical facility. We have the training and equipment needed to provide better medical care should an unexpected emergency arise.
- Alcohol and Botox Don’t Mix- Botox parties often feature alcohol—a big no-no with Botox. Not only does it interfere with your ability to make an informed decision and communicate clearly with your injector, it can also increase your risk of bruising.
- Peer Pressure- The decision to get Botox should be yours alone, in consultation with your doctor. It should not be made due to peer pressure. If you want to know about Botox, come see us. We’ll help you make the right choice for you.
