Botox and Cosmetic Fillers: Aftercare Instructions
Do NOT rub or massage the treated area for 24 hours after your treatment. Do NOT have a facial for 2 to 3 weeks after your treatment.
Please be aware that some, though very few patients, experience a mild headache. You may take Tylenol to help with this for pain relief
Be assured that tiny bumps or marks will go away within a few hours after your treatment. There is a small risk of bruising. If this occurs, do not worry since it will only be temporary and can easily be covered up with makeup. Any little bit of bruising may last up to one week
After Botox is placed into the targeted muscles, the weakening effect gradually begins anywhere from 3-7 days and is not complete for two weeks. Therefore, optimal results are not seen for at least two weeks
Botox will last approximately 2-3 months at first. However, if you maintain your treatment appointments with the frequency recommended, the duration of each treatment result may last longer than four months
Filler will last approximately 8 months to 1 or 1.5 years
After filler is injected, you may be bruised, red or feel some swelling. This will all go down in time and you will feel the full effect of filler in about two weeks
Call us immediately if you experience bruising, pain, swelling and feel free to call us at anytime if you have any questions.
