BOTOX® POST TREATMENT
Do NOT manipulate the treated area for 3 hours following treatment. Do NOT receive facial/ laser treatments or microdermabrasion after Botox® injections for at least 10 days. Ask your provider if you are not sure about the time frame of certain services.
Some providers believe that smiling and frowning right after Botox® treatments helps the Botox® find its way to the muscle into which it was injected after treated.
Do NOT lie down for 4 hours after your Botox® treatment. This will prevent the Botox® from tracking into the orbit of your eye and causing drooping eyelid.
It can take approximately 4 to 7 days for results to be seen. If the desired result is not seen after 2 weeks of your treatment you may need additional Botox®. You are charged for the amount of product used. Therefore, you will be charged for a product used during any touch-up or subsequent appointments.
Do NOT perform activities involving straining, heavy lifting, or vigorous exercise for 6 hours after treatment. This will keep the Botox® in the injected area and not elsewhere.
Try to use the injected muscles for the first 1-2 hours after treatment: practice frowning, raising your eyebrows and squinting. This helps work Botox® into your muscles. Although this is thought to help, this will not impact your treatment negatively if you forget.
The results of your treatment can take up to 14 days to take full effect. Usually patients notice a change in 4-5 days. It takes time for the muscles to lose strength and the lines to fade following Botox® treatment. Please wait until 14 days have passed before assessing if you are pleased with the results.
Do not touch or rub injected site for 2-4 hours following treatment. Avoid exercise and sweating for the remainder of the day and no lying down or leaning forward for 2-4 hours after treatment.
There can be a slight chance of bruising at the treated site, this is temporary. Be assured that any tiny bumps or marks will go away within a few hours of treatment.
Avoid any type of facial, microderm abrasion, or massage for 14 days after treatment.
Avoid Ibuprofen, Advil or Motrin, Tylenol is acceptable to take if experiencing discomfort (if not contraindicated)
Botox® Cosmetic is a temporary procedure and at first, you may find that your treatment results will last approximately 3-4 months. If you maintain your treatment appointments with the frequency recommended by your clinician, the duration of each treatment results may last longer than 4 months.
Your satisfaction is important to us! We would like you to return to the office in 2 weeks for a follow-up assessment appointment, especially after your first treatment. This will ensure we are able to see how your facial muscles react to your treatment. If you require additional Botox® to fine-tune/adjust your treatment results there will be additional charges at the regular rate.
Remember your sunscreen every day.
