Neurotoxin Aftercare guide

Immediate Aftercare

  • For the first 5-6 hours following Botox or Dysport, remain upright and periodically perform facial movements in the areas of injections to work the Botox into the muscle – e.g., smile, squint, etc.

    Do not participate in activities that include heavy lifting, vigorous exercise or straining for 24 hours.

    Do not rub, touch, or manipulate injection area for 6 hours. Avoid irritating products for 24 hours following appoitnment.

    Make-up may be applied gently before leaving the office, remember to wipe up and away from your eyes or brows.

    Bruising in the area injected is normal and often expected, especially if treated around the eyes. Bruising can last up to several weeks. Using and taking Arnica may help diminish bruising.

    It may take up to 12 days for Neurotoxins to take full effect.

    A follow-up visit at 10 days to 2 weeks is suggested to assess results for subsequent treatments, particularly if you are a first time client. If a full correction is not achieved, you must purchase additional Botox for injection.

    Re-treatment is typically needed between 2-6 months.

    Regular injections usually yield a longer-lasting result.

    If your upper lip was treated, you cannot drink through a straw, whistle, or enunciate some words for approximately 2 weeks.

    Although rare, infection in the injected area is possible. Signs of infection may include redness and tenderness in the infected area and fever. Should you develop an infection, antibiotics may be necessary.
