Botox is a quick and effective way to minimize facial wrinkles while still looking natural. 

What To Expect After Your Botox Treatment

? Injection sites can be red and swollen immediately after injections but should resolve quickly 

? As with all injections, bruising can occur and may take 1-2 weeks to disappear. Arnica gel is an over the counter product that may help diminish bruises. 

? The effects of Botox are not immediate and will take 3-5 days to start working and up to 2 weeks to see the full effect. The best outcomes with Botox depend on adequate dosing. Please consider the dosing recommendations given by your Provider. 

? It is normal to experience a headache after receiving Botox. If needed, you may take Tylenol for any headaches or discomfort as long as you do not have any allergies to Tylenol. 

? A medical grade skincare regimen is recommended to maintain and enhance your results. Our favorite products include SkinBetter LINES and SkinBetter AlphaRet.  

? Be sure to call and schedule your next appointment once you see your muscles beginning to gain movement again.

For the best results, it is recommended to follow these guidelines:

? Do NOT lie flat for 4 hours after your Botox treatment 

? Avoid strenuous exercise and sweating for the remainder of the day 

? Do NOT apply make-up or skin care products for 12 hours

 ? DO NOT take Ibuprofen, aspirin or vitamin E for 24 hours to prevent further bruising
