Delay Workouts

We recommend either workout before the Botox treatment or wait until at least the morning after the treatment to resume your normal workout pattern. Exercise can raise a patient’s blood pressure and increase the risk of inflammation.

Delay Makeup

We recommend that you not use makeup for one day after your visit. Makeup and other foreign substances on the skin can interact with neuromodulator injection sites, and this can lead to an infection that causes redness, swelling, and discomfort.

Use Gentle Face Cleanser

The right hygienic regimen can keep your skin healthy and beautiful. However, you may be using an aggressive facial cleanser, which can cause an infection after neuromodulator injections. We can advise you about alternative cleansers if necessary. You can return to your normal hygienic routine 24 hours after your procedure.

No Facials or Massage

Avoid facials and facial muscle manipulation for two weeks after treatment.

Avoid Lying Down

Avoid lying down or yoga poses such as downward dog for 4 hours after your procedure. This is to avoid the risk of pressure on the treated areas and to avoid the risk of having the area rubbed accidentally.

Take Arnica

Take an arnica tablet every six hours after your injections, for the next several days.

Avoid painkillers

Painkillers should be used sparingly for headaches or facial pain. Strong painkillers such as Aspirin and ibuprofen should be avoided.
