3 things you should do and 6 you shouldn’t do after Botox injections

botox dos and donts

Here is a short guide of the do’s and don’ts after having Botox.

The do’s

  • Frown repeatedly for about one hour immediately following the treatment. This will help the treatment to be more effective by increasing the uptake by the targeted muscle groups, then after this time try to avoid extreme facial expressions for the next 12 hours
  • Keep upright for the first 4 hours
  • You can gently apply light make-up after treatment but use a light dabbing motion instead of a rubbing or spreading motion

The don’ts

  • Do not rub or massage the treated area and avoid make-up if possible.
  • Avoid sleeping on your face the first night
  • Do not exercise or partake in any strenuous activity for the next 12 hrs
  • Avoid excessive alcohol consumption for the next 24hrs
  • Do not have any beauty treatments on your face e.g. facials, facial massage for 2 weeks- this may cause the injected solution to spread to nearby muscles.
  • Avoid exposure to strong sunlight, very cold temperatures and saunas for the next 2 weeks

Side effects of  Botox and antiwrinkle injections are rare.
