At the turn of the 21st Century, the face of cosmetics was forever changed. In April of 2002, the FDA approved the most influential cosmetic treatment ever released: BOTOX®.
Since then, millions of women and men have experienced the thrill of having younger-looking skin. After a simple injection treatment, common signs of aging are minimized or gone completely. To maximize your results, follow these essential aftercare instructions. These easy tips can boost results to help you get the look you want.
First Hour After BOTOX®
Feel free to move your face! Gently exercise the facial muscles. Raising eyebrows, smiling and frowning can help ensure the solution spreads throughout relevant areas. While important, don’t overdo it. Gentle movements are key.
First Three Hours After BOTOX®
The first 180 minutes after your treatment is most crucial. Avoid performing strenuous activities or laying down. Most importantly, keep your head elevated in an upright position. This will help ensure that you get the exact results you’ve been looking for.
24 Hours and Beyond
During the initial 24 hours, you don’t want to irritate the treatment area. When washing your face, be extra delicate and use mild face wash.
In general, you won’t need to take many extra steps to ensure great results after your treatment. Part of what makes BOTOX® so popular is its convenience and simplicity. Not only does the treatment take just minutes to complete, but it comes with the added benefit of no downtime and minimal aftercare.
