How to Care for Your Skin after Botox, Dysport, Neurotoxin and Dermal Fillers


  • Bruising at the treatment site may occur.
  • Temporary, minimal to moderate swelling may be expected related to the area/s treated and the product/s used.
  • You may experience some tenderness at the treatment site that can last for a few hours or, at times, a few days.
  • It is normal to feel “firmness” in your treated area/s for the first few days after treatment. Over time, the area/s will soften and “settle”.
  • Apply cool compresses to the area/s treated (avoiding pressure).
  • You may begin wearing makeup once you have adequately cooled/iced the area/s, and any pinpoint bleeding from the injection site/s has subsided.
  • DO NOT RUB OR MASSAGE the treated area/s today.
  • When cleansing your face or applying make-up, use gentle, sweeping motions to avoid excessive mobility of the area/s.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise or activity for the remainder of the treatment day. You may resume other normal activities/routines immediately.
  • You may take acetaminophen/Tylenol if you experience any mild tenderness or discomfort. Avoid aspirin or ibuprofen products, vitamin E and fish oil, as they may increase your potential to bruise.
  • AVOID drinking alcohol for a minimum of 12 hours as this may contribute to bruising.
  • AVOID extended UV exposure until any redness has subsided. Apply an SPF 30 or higher sunscreen to the treated area/s.
  • Wait a minimum of 6 weeks before receiving any laser treatments and 1 week before skincare treatments.



  • Do not lie down for 4 hours following your treatment.
  • Avoid any massage or pressure to treatment area/s, as this may alter the placement of the drug.
  • If you would like to reapply makeup, do so gently over the treatment area/s.
  • Do not wear a hat or visor for 4 hours post treatment if forehead was treated.
  • Contract and release the muscles every few minutes over the next hour.
