Pre & Post Treatment Care

Preparing for BOTOX

There are several things to do and consider before receiving your BOTOX treatment.

1.) When you meet with your doctor to discuss medical history, be sure to disclose information accurately and honestly. Some medications may cause or worsen side effects after your treatment.

Aspirin, Ibuprofen and other pain killers are blood thinners, which will cause bruising at the injection sites. It’s best to not take them a minimum of four days prior.

2.) Avoid drinking any alcohol at minimum of two days prior to your treatment.

3.) Feel free to bring an ice pack and non-steroid, anti-inflammatory pain killers to help ease any pain, headaches or swelling that may occur after the procedure.

4.) Important to note, if you are preparing for a big event like a wedding or birthday celebration, be sure to schedule your treatment at least 2-3 weeks before your event.

Post Treatment Care

1.) After your treatment, you will be able to leave and return to your normal dailly activities within minutes. It is recommended to avoid any strenuous activities such as exercising, weight lifting or yoga. We suggest waiting 3 to 4 hours before laying down too.

2.) Practice moving the treated muscle areas. (Smiling, frowning, squinting etc.) This will help the Botox settle into your muscles.

3.) Minimize touching the treated areas for at least four hours. Moisturizing and make-up application are okay to do immediately after, as long as they are applied lightly. Also, avoid vigorously rubbing the areas treated for the next few days.

4.) Avoid drinking alcohol or any blood thinning medications as well as facials, chemical peels and massages for the next 24 hours.

5.) Contact your doctor after 2 weeks for a follow up and touch up session if needed.

**If you notice any side effects or experience complications after your treatment please call your doctor or seek medical attention right away**
