Pre-Treatment Instruction:

  • Plan 1 week of no major events in case you bruise.
  • Taking blood thinners such as Aspirin, Advil, Aleve, Motrin, Fish Oil, Vitamin E and Vitamin A or consuming alcoholic beverages may increase the risk of bruising. Please receive Physician approval before stopping any prescribed medication.
  • Start Arnica tabs and or Arnica cream 3 days prior to your appointment to help minimize bruising, you may continue for 3-5 days after injections.
  • If you have a history of cold sores notify our office so a provider can prescribe cold sore medication.
  • If you are sick or have an active infection prior to your appointment please call the office to reschedule your injection appointment.  
 

Post-Treatment Instruction:

  • No strenuous exercise for 24 hours after botox injections.
  • No bending, lifting or laying down for 4 hours after injections.
  • No face down massages or facials for 24 hours after botox injections.
  • Avoid wearing make-up for 4hrs. When resuming makeup, please use clean brushes and sponges.
  • After neurotoxin injections it is normal to have small welts or bumps at the injection site. Please do not touch or manipulate. Moving your facial muscles through expressions will help the product to absorb and disperse faster.
  • Although some people react quicker to certain neurotoxins the full effect of your treatment will take between 10-14 days.
