Botox/Dysport Post Treatment Instructions
For the first 4 hours following, remain upright and do not participate in activities that include heavy lifting, vigorous exercise or straining for 4 hours (it takes approximately 4 hours for the product to bind to the nerve and you do not want to increase circulation during that time).
Do not rub, massage or manipulate the injection sites for 48 hours after injection. This includes washing your face vigorously or using jade roller/gua sha tool.
Do not take Ibuprofen, aspirin or vitamin E for 24 hours after injection. Tylenol may be taken for any discomfort or headaches.
Make-up may be applied gently, remember to wipe up and away from your eyes or brows.
Avoid herbal supplements such as Ginko, green tea and anti-inflammatories of any kind for 2 weeks following treatment to limit bruising.
Bruising in the area injected is normal and often expected, especially if treated around the eyes. Bruising can last up to several weeks. Using/taking Arnica may help diminish bruising.
Effects aren’t usually visible until at least three days after the injections, but it may take up to 12 days for the full effect.
Schedule your next appointment once you see the muscles beginning to gain movement again. Re-treatment is typically needed between 3-4 months. Regular injections usually yield a longer lasting result.
A follow-up visit at 2 weeks is suggested to assess results for subsequent treatments, particularly if you are a first time client. If full correction is not achieved, additional product may need to be purchased.
The settling of Dysport may happen non-uniformly, giving the appearance of an uneven treatment. This will most often resolve itself as it continues to take effect. If you have other concerns, please contact the office for follow up.
