Don’t Touch or Massage the Botox Site
It will be tempting to touch that beautifully smooth face and feel the results, but please resist. Botox needs time to set – and doctors warn that touching or kneading the injection area can literally move the Botox away from the target area and ruin the effect.
Doctor’s Botox “Don’ts” After Injections
Take good care of that new face for a few days after treatment. Try not to celebrate with too much alcohol. Facials and other types of skin treatments should be avoided for 24 hours.
Botox doctors also advise that any activity, including exercise that makes you sweat (even a little), should be curtailed for at least 48 hours following the injection.
Doctor’s Botox “Dos” After Injection
Some bruising is likely to happen, but if the patient is prone to bruising it can be minimized or even prevented by taking Arnica tablets a few days before and following the Botox procedure. Ice applied to the injection site will also help.
And if a patient simply desires a faster recovery, our AMAE Med Spa in Birmingham, MI offers a laser treatment that helps make bruising go away more quickly.
Follow Your Botox Doctor’s Instructions
People devote time and money when they opt to receive Botox treatments. So why risk compromising the results by not following the doctor’s orders.
For example, doctor’s after-care instructions plainly state not to consume a lot of alcohol immediately following surgery. There are many reasons why this is important, including dehydration and impaired judgment that might encourage touching the injection site.
Trust the Botox doctor and commit to following their instructions to the letter. Then sit back and enjoy the results!
Contact Your Botox Doctor if Anything Seems Wrong
The Botox doctor or nurse will advise you of what to expect after your Botox treatment. It is essential to contact him or her immediately if you experience anything unusual or lasting that doesn’t seem right.
While complications from Botox are extremely rare, it is always better to be safe than sorry – and early intervention can prevent a small issue from becoming a major problem.
