Wrinkle smoothing injections with Botulinum Toxin A (also referred to as Botox) 

 

Islington Studio Rutland aftercare advice

 

  • Try to exercise your treated muscles for 1-2 hours after treatment (e.g. practice frowning, raising your eyebrows, and squinting). This helps to work the botulinum toxin into your muscles.

 

  • Stay in a vertical position for four hours following injection. DO NOT lie down; sit upright.

 

  • Do not consume excessive alcohol for 24 hours.

 

  • You may apply an ice or cold gel pack to the area(s) treated (avoiding pressure) as this helps reduce swelling.

 

  • Avoid placing excessive pressure on the treated area(s) for the first few days; when cleansing your face or applying makeup, be very gentle.

 

  • Avoid exercise or strenuous activities for the remainder of the treatment day; you may resume other normal activities/routines immediately.

 

  • You may experience a mild headache. If this occurs you may want to take some paracetamol or ibuprofen.

 

  • Avoid extended UV exposure until any redness/swelling has subsided.

 

  • Wait a minimum of 24 hours (or as directed by your provider) before receiving any skin care or laser treatments.

 

  • If you have any concerns after treatment contact Dr Lashbrooke on 07815787573.
