Botox and Filler Parties: What to Expect
A Botox and filler party is a social gathering where injections are given, often in a person’s home, to smooth lines, add volume and slow down the signs of aging. The home environment is comfortable and relaxed, and if someone is receiving Botox or fillers for the first time, having friends and family nearby can provide the support and nurturing needed to enjoy their first experience. Rest assured, any Botox and filler party I am involved with will have measures in place to ensure safe and effective treatments. As long as a physician, like myself, is performing the treatments, there is no need to worry about having Botox or fillers at a friend’s home or other meeting spot.
So, what do Botox and fillers do? Botox Cosmetic is a form of botulinum toxin type A that is used to soften and relax facial lines and wrinkles for a period of 3-4 months, on average. The fillers I use are hyaluronic-acid based fillers that minimize lines, add volume and plumpness and, even provide lift. While Botox and filler injections are relatively safe when given by an experienced doctor, side effects can occur — mainly mild bruising at the injection site. The numbing cream I use is prescription grade and potent, so patients feel extremely comfortable while receiving their injections. I am also a very gentle injector.
Keep in mind that drinking alcohol before getting Botox and filler injections can increase your tendency to bruise afterward. It could also prevent you from fully understanding the risks and benefits of the treatment, so I encourage patients to wait until after I administer their injections to enjoy a glass of wine at a Botox and filler party.
I will go over your medical history and medication use in the home setting, as well as explain expected results to help you determine if Botox and fillers are right for you. And, after the party, I will make sure you have my contact information so you can follow up with me if you have any questions. Your care is extremely important to me. Just know a Botox and filler party is a fun and comfortable way to experience injectables while being surrounded by loved ones.
