The results of your treatment can take up to 14 days to take full effect. 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, or massage for 5 days after treatment. Avoid Ibuprofen, Advil, or Motrin. Botox Cosmetic is a temporary procedure and at first, you may find that your treatment results will last approximately 3-4 months. Resume normal skincare regimen unless otherwise directed.

The majority of reactions to dermal fillers are redness, swelling, bruising, and tenderness after the injections. These usually subside a few days after the treatment, but can last up to a week. If any of these symptoms persist longer than a week, or if you develop other symptoms, please contact our office. You may use a cold compress after the treatment or take Tylenol every 4-6 hours to reduce discomfort. Make-up may be applied a few hours after the treatment, if no complications are present, such as open wounds, bleeding or infection. In the first 24 hours following treatment, limit exposure to sunlight or UV lamps. Avoid taking aspirin (unless medically necessary) or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, as these may cause an increased risk of bleeding or bruising at the injection sites.

For a few hours after your appointment, your skin will likely be pink, sensitive, and swollen, like a sunburn. You’ll need to wear plenty of SPF. Within the first 48 hours, you’ll notice your pigmented spots darkening even more. Don’t worry! Soon after this, they’ll naturally flake off and leave behind a more evenly colored skin surface. For days 1-3 post-treatment, do not exercise or participate in any strenuous physical activity and do not take hot showers, baths, or use hot tubs for minimum of 72 hours. During days 1-7 post-treatment, do not exfoliate skin, pick any crusting or blisters, expose skin to the sun unprotected (for at least 2 weeks), or apply skin care with harsh chemicals or high amounts of vitamin A, such as alpha-hydroxy acids, Accutane, Retin-A (tretinoin), glycolic acid, and retinoic acid. Do apply sunscreen with a minimum of 30 SPF, cleanse your skin twice a day with lukewarm water, and keep your skin moist at all times using a hyaluronic acid moisturizer.
