Following your Botox treatment, it’s important to adhere to specific aftercare guidelines to ensure the best possible results and to minimize any potential side effects. Here’s a clear and efficient guide to help you through your post-Botox care:
Patience for Results: Please wait approximately 2 weeks post-treatment to see the full effect. If you feel touch-ups are needed, schedule them after this period.
Mild Headaches Are Normal: It’s common to experience mild headaches after the treatment. This is typically short-lived and should subside on its own.
Avoid Certain Medications: Refrain from taking Advil, aspirin, and blood thinners both before and after your treatment to reduce the risk of bruising and bleeding.
No Pressure on Treatment Area: Do not apply pressure, massage, or have facials performed on the treated areas. This helps to prevent the Botox from spreading to unintended muscles.
Alcohol Restriction: Avoid alcohol consumption for 24 hours before and after your treatment to minimize the risk of bruising.
- Do not lay down or bend over for at least 4 hours after the treatment.
- Avoid any rigorous activities or exercise for 24 hours.
- Stay away from direct sun exposure, heat, saunas, swimming pools, and activities that cause excessive sweating for 24 hours.
Swelling and Bruising: Some swelling and bruising are normal within the first 1-2 days post-treatment. This should subside naturally.
Contact for Concerns: If you notice any unusual symptoms such as white discoloration, severe bruising, or severe pain, it’s important to contact us or seek emergency medical attention immediately.
Every individual’s response to Botox can vary. It’s crucial to follow these guidelines closely and consult your healthcare provider for any concerns or unusual reactions following the treatment. Your well-being and the effectiveness of the treatment depend on proper aftercare.
