BOTOX Treatment Results
Botox Before Treatment Instructions
Ingestion of alcoholic beverages prior to treatment can increase the chances of bruising and/or swelling.
No anti-inflammatory drugs (Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve, Vioxx, etc.), aspirin, Vitamin E or Ginko Biloba one week prior to treatment. This will reduce the possible side effects of bruising and/or swelling in area(s) of treatment.
You cannot be pregnant or breastfeeding to receive treatment. You cannot be allergic to eggs or egg products to receive treatment.
After Botox Treatment Instructions
Do not lie down for 4 hours following treatment.
Do not exercise for 4 hours following treatment
Facial exercises (squint/frown/smile) are strongly recommended in the treated area for one hour after injection.
Avoid manipulation of treated area for a minimum of four hours.
By following the above measures you will minimize the occurrence of ptosis (droopy eyelids), bruising and less than optimal outcomes.
Common side effects include a slight headache lasting a few hours up to 48 hours and temporary bruising and/or swelling.
Post Care Followup and Instructions
Treatment effect will take 2 to 10 days.
Benefits of treatment may last 3 to 6 months; the average is 4 months.
We require a followup appointment 7-10 days from your visit to insure the resolution of the lines has taken effect. Additional units of Botox may be necessary to achieve desired result.
Follow up treatments should be scheduled prior to return of full movement of muscle, usually at three months.
Consistent repeated treatments will produce the best resolution of wrinkles.
