  1. Ditch the Rub: Resist the urge to touch, rub, or massage your treated areas for at least 24 hours. This can spread the product unevenly, affecting both results and potentially causing side effects.
  2. Say “Namaste” to Gravity: Avoid lying flat for 4 hours after your appointment. Sleeping, napping, or even bending over excessively can put pressure on the injection sites, impacting the product’s distribution.
  3. Sweat Not (Literally): Give your body a break from strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours. Intense workouts increase blood flow, potentially affecting the placement of the product.
  4. Put Down the Wine Glass: Alcohol thins your blood, increasing the risk of bruising and swelling. Give your body time to heal by holding off on alcoholic beverages for 24 hours.
  5. Take it Easy on the Pain Relievers: Aspirin, ibuprofen, and other blood thinners can also contribute to bruising and swelling. Stick to acetaminophen for any post-injection discomfort.
  6. Sunscreen is Your BFF: Sun exposure can irritate the treated area and potentially shorten the duration of your BOTOX effects. Protect your skin with SPF 30 sunscreen whenever venturing out.
  7. Skip the Spa Day (For Now): Facial massages, saunas, and other facial treatments can disrupt the settled BOTOX, affecting your desired outcome. Wait at least a week before indulging in these pampering sessions.
  8. Be Gentle with Your Face: Wash your face cautiously with lukewarm water and a gentle cleanser 24 hours after your appointment. Avoid harsh scrubbing or rubbing, and pat your face dry instead of towel-drying.
  9. Listen to Your Injector: Every individual heals differently. Following your injector’s specific post-treatment instructions is crucial for optimal results and minimizing potential side effects.
  10. Embrace Patience: Remember, magic takes time! While some see results within a few days, full BOTOX effects typically take 7-14 days to manifest. Relax, enjoy the process, and trust your injector.
