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

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.

Botox, Dysport Neurotoxin

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.

You may experience some tenderness at the treatment site that can last for a few hours or, at times, a few days.

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.
