BOTOX AFTERCARE

  • Do not touch the area for atleast 4 hours
  • Do not apply make up for atleast 6 hours, when applying after treatment ensure it is with a clean brush

  • You may have temporary tenderness, swelling or bruising around the injection sites which may be present for up to two weeks after treatment
  • Avoid applying pressure to or massaging the treated area for 2-3 days following treatment
  • Use of the muscles treated will help absorb botox
  • Allow a full 21 days for best results
  • A top up is only required if full movement persists. If you are unable to move eyebrows fully and lines have reduced a top up is not required.
  • A top up must be done only 21 days after the initial treatment, but no later than 30 days. If you are unable to schedule an appointment in this time frame you will not qualify for a top up.
  • For at least 4 hours after treatment keep upright and do not bend excessively.

  • We recommend that you avoid alcoholic beverages and anti-inflammatory medications before treatment. For the best results, schedule a botox appointment at least 2 weeks prior to any special events.
