Do not rub the skin in the area that was injected for the first 24 hours after the injection.
No lying down or bending face forward in the first four hours after injection.
No exercising for the first 24 hours after injection. Avoid wearing head bands or hats for 24 hours following injection.
The full effect of the Botox will not be noticed until about 10-14 days after the injection.
For the first few hours following injection, it is recommended that you ice the area a few times for 15 minutes each time to minimize the swelling. Do not apply ice directly on skin in order to avoid burning.
If you have some bruising, we recommend warm compress 15 minutes every hour, after the first 24 hours.
Keep in mind that it is entirely normal that you have redness in the injected area for the first 24-48 hours. It is also normal that you feel small lumps in the skin for about one week. You can massage them gently and this will help.
For patients having volume lift, we recommend you sleep on your back for the first night following your injection.
