Botox/Dysport Jaw Slimming After Care
Stay upright for at least 4 hours to prevent unintentional spread of product. This includes avoiding yoga inversions for the first 24 hours.
Do not do vigorous exercise for 24 hours. This includes high-intensity interval training and other forms of exercise that raise your heart rate and make you sweat.
Headache and discomfort may occur following jaw slimming treatment. This can last up to 48 hours. Using ice, ibuprofen, Tylenol, and Excedrin can be helpful. Do not use Ibuprofen if you have evidence of bruising.
Do not massage, rub, or manipulate your jaw for 48 hours after the injection. This includes jade rolling and gua sha facial massage.
The masseters are large muscles that take longer to respond to wrinkle relaxers. Jaw slimming treatment takes 3-4 weeks to feel a difference in jaw clenching/grinding/TMJ pain and 4-6 weeks to see a difference in appearance. Please schedule a follow up if you are unsure about your results.
For best outcomes, it is recommended to treat every 4-6 months. Treating 2 times a year improves cosmetic results as well as maximizes pain reduction. The more consistently you treat, the better the result!
