Aftercare Instructions

AFTER BOTOX TREATMENTS

  • After treatment, it is expected that you will start to see an improvement within 5 to 10 days. For some people this takes longer. The full result may be judged at 2-3 weeks. You may be invited to attend a review appointment at 2-3 weeks where the success of the treatment may be assessed and adjustments to your personal treatment plan made, if necessary.
  • Small red spots on the skin usually disappear in a few hours. Transient stinging of the skin is normal after injection (10-15 minutes). If bruising is to occur, it usually is apparent at day 2-3 and will typically resolve over 5-10 days, although this is rare. You will not see any effect for around 5 days and the full effect is visible at around 2-3 weeks.
  • Should you experience any unexpected side effects or any that concern you, please contact the clinic soon as possible.

What to do after treatment

  • In the evening of the treatment you may gently wash your face and use your regular wash and lotions. 
  • You may gently apply a cool compress to any red or swollen areas for the first 48 hours to help decrease the swelling more quickly. No pressure is to be exerted onto the face. The compress should only be gently placed on the treated areas.
  • Remain upright either sitting or standing for at least 6 hours after treatment to avoid uneven distribution of product. Do not sleep with pressure on the face
  • You may commence bathing the day after the procedure.
  • You may require further treatment to obtain the desired results. You may be offered a follow up appointment for 2-3 weeks after your initial procedure.
  • If you are a smoker it may be recommended that you take vitamin C prior to the procedure to assist with healing. 

What NOT to do after treatment

  • Do not massage the area treated for the first 2 days following treatment. No facials, waxing or massage for the first 2 weeks. 
  • Do not take aspirin, ibuprofen or other anti-inflammatory medication for 24 hours after treatment as this may increase bruising. You may take paracetamol or codeine if you are uncomfortable.
  • No strenuous exercise or gardening for at least 24 hours but light exercise such as walking is ok.
  • Do not have a sauna, hot tub or go in a tanning booth for 2 weeks after treatment. Always wear a broad spectrum, high factor sun protection (SPF 30-50) on the face, neck, décolletage and hands.

What to watch out for after treatment

  • You may experience a “heaviness” of the brow, or a different way of your eyelid folding as the muscles settle into the new position. This typically resolves within 2 weeks. True drooping of the eyelid/brow is rare.
  • In some cases it may be necessary to add dermal filler to the forehead or temple to get the best results. This additional treatment will be discussed with you at your consultation but is usually due to excessively deep lines or asymmetries in the skull.
  • Please ensure you discuss your overall treatment plan with your practitioner as this will enable you to receive the best results from treatment.
  • Please contact the clinic if you have any questions or concerns.



AFTER DERMAL FILLER TREATMENT

  • Immediately after treatment, there may be slight redness, swelling, tenderness and an itching sensation in the treated area. The area might be a bit bumpy, but this is a normal result of the injection. The filler will integrate within a matter of days with your own tissue. The final result can be judged at 2-3 weeks.
  • If you have previously suffered from cold sores, there is an increased risk that the injection could cause another cold sore.
  • Should you experience any unexpected side effects or any that concern you, please contact the clinic soon as possible.
