What Happens Immediately After Botox Light redness and/or swelling after Botox is common. Typically, this resolves within an hour. Some patients have light bruising. Most patients experience no side effects. It's a quick procedure with little downtime after Botox, allowing you to get back to your normal routine right away. Typical results last between 4-6 months. As your fine lines and wrinkles begin to re-appear, come back in for another treatment.

What to Do After Botox in Forehead We want our patients to look refreshed and natural after their procedure, not frozen. Our overall goal of Botox is not to completely disable your facial muscles, we like to see movement. Each patient will vary. Some patients will see their forehead lines quickly disappear within 48 hrs, others may have to wait the full two weeks to see great results.

  1. Skincare and Makeup Post Botox Instructions Can you wear makeup after Botox Treatments? Yes, you can wear minimal makeup, although be careful not to apply a lot of pressure or massaging to your face. You can continue with your regular skincare routine following Botox. If possible, avoid touching your face for 24 hours after your treatment. Use a gentle cleanser and avoid heavy exfoliation for 72 hours after the treatment. Some patient's note that their skin is dry after Botox. Use a light moisturizer with hyaluronic acid to combat excessive dryness. We recommend delaying professional facial treatments for at least 2 weeks after Botox.

  2. What Not to Do After Botox and What to Avoid After Botox --If you’re planning an evening out, it may be best to wait a few days. --Avoid physical exercise-It is best to wait at least 24-48 hours after your Botox procedure to return to your exercise routine. It’s possible that you could bruise yourself when participating in physical activities. Waiting a couple of days to exercise after undergoing a Botox procedure ensures your face is protected. While we know its highly unlikely that you’re going to fall flat on your face during physical activity, it’s better to be safe than sorry. --Avoid direct heat exposure, Tanning, Sunbathing or exposing yourself to intense heat (hot yoga) should be avoided for at least 24-48 hours after treatment. --Avoid massaging or touching the treatment area. Excessive massage or touching can affect the results of your procedure. We take great care to ensure the accurate administration of Botox. As Botox is a procedure which numbs your facial muscles to prevent wrinkles, it’s imperative to leave it alone for the best results. Touching your face may move the Botox to other areas of the face, and that will affect the success of your treatment. We recommend not touching your face for at least 24-48 hours after having Botox. --Avoid alcohol and painkillers. If you’re thinking of drinking alcohol after Botox, it’s best to avoid it. You also need to avoid taking painkillers (ibuprofen or Aspirin) too. Painkillers and alcohol can both cause thinning of the blood, which may cause any bruising from your Botox to worsen. --Avoid wearing tight headwear after having Botox in your forehead, avoid wearing anything which may fit tightly across your forehead, such as a hat or headband. What to Know About Laying Down After Botox. It’s essential to avoid laying down after Botox for six hours. This prevents putting pressure directly on any treatment areas, allowing Botox to diffuse evenly into all your facial muscles. Keep upright for the first few hours after having Botox, avoiding any activity which may cause you to place your head upside down, such as shoe shopping.If you plan on traveling after Botox, the good news is that you can fly without any worries! Changes in cabin pressure or altitude have no negative effect on Botox. Just remember not to lie down in your seat for six hours after your procedure.

Botox Aftercare Sleeping Advice Many patients ask, "How long after Botox, should I wait before one can lay down?" Botox aftercare sleeping advice is an important part of your post Botox care. It’s important to avoid sleeping on areas where Botox has been injected. Don't sleep directly on your face. This can be challenging for some patients, especially if you’re used to sleeping in a certain way. However, if your procedure involved having Botox in the face, we would encourage you to sleep on your back. Botox requires time to settle into your muscles and lying on your face may prevent this. One great aspect is that Botox settles quickly and you only need to avoid sleeping on your face for one night!
