During your botulinum toxin consultation be prepared to discuss:
- Your goals

- Current medications, vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco and drugs
Your plastic surgeon may also:
- Evaluate your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors
- Discuss likely outcomes and any risks or potential complications
Botulinum toxin is a minimally invasive injection that's given in your plastic surgeon's office.

It's natural to feel some anxiety, whether it's excitement for your anticipated new look or a bit of stress. Don't be shy about discussing these feelings with your plastic surgeon.
