  Botox Before & After Care

Before Treatment

•    Ingestion of alcoholic beverages prior to treatment can increase   chances of bruising and/or swelling.
•    No anti-inflammatory drugs (Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve, Vioxx,
     etc.), aspirin, Vitamin E, or Gingko 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 Treatment

•    Do not lie down for 2 to 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.

Follow Up

•    Treatment effect will take 2 to 10 days.
•    Benefits of treatment may last 3 to 6 months; the average is 4 months.
•    Please inform the office if the resolution of the lines has not taken effect in 10 days. Additional unit 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.
