BOTULINUM TOXIN INJECTIONS
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Expectations and Care
Bruising varies between patients. Usually minimal bruising occurs and results within 2-3 days. On occasion, bruising may be more significant and last up to 7-10 days.
It is normal to feel “firmness” in the injection area (a) for the first few days after treatment. Over time, the area will soften, leaving you with a natural looking result.
POST- TREATMENT BOTULINUM TOXIN
Do NOT manipulate the treated area for 3 hours following treatment. Do NOT receive facial/laser treatments or microdermabrasion after injections for at least 10 days.
Some providers believe that smiling and frowning right after Botulinum toxin treatments helps the toxin find its way to the muscle into which it was injected after treatment.
Do NOT lie down for 4 HOURS AFTER your treatment. This will prevent the toxin from tracking into the orbit of your eye and causing drooping eyelids.
It can take approximately 4 to 7 days for results to be seen. Please remember this!
Do NOT perform activities involving straining, heavy lifting, or vigorous exercises (eg sex) for 6 hours after treatment. This will keep the Botulinum toxin in the injected area and not elsewhere.
POST-TREATMENT DERMAL FILLER
Avoid significant movement or message of the treated area. Unless instructed by the provider.
Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours.
Avoid extensive sun or heat for 72 hours.
Avoid consuming excess amounts of alcohol or salts to avoid excess swelling.
IF you have swelling you may apply a cool compress for 15 minutes each hour.
Use Tylenol for pain and discomfort.
Try to sleep face up and slightly elevated if you experience swelling.
