Post Antiwrinkle Injection Care Instructions
Upon receiving Botulinum toxin treatment, noticing effects within 2-8 days is common. Practitioners may advise frowning intermittently in the initial days. Avoid applying pressure on treated areas for 24-48 hours post-treatment. Refrain from massaging the injection area for at least 24 hours. Wait 6-8 hours before applying makeup following treatment.
Possible Side Effects
Mild side effects might occur after wrinkle-smoothing injections. Mild headaches post-treatment can be alleviated with Paracetamol if necessary. Tenderness, bruising, red dots, and swelling around the injection site are possible. Minimize excessive exercise if bruising occurs in the first days after treatment. If any concerns arise regarding your treatment, promptly contact the clinic.
Follow-Up and Review
Expect a follow-up appointment around 4 weeks after your initial treatment. Subsequent treatments might not require follow-up appointments. The 4-week protocol ensures maximum assessment of muscle relaxant results. Gradual results can be observed over the course of 12-16 weeks after treatment.
Long-Term Care and Retreatment
Around 8 weeks post-treatment, movement typically begins to return. By 12 weeks, most individuals experience about 50% restoration of movement. At 16 weeks, movement usually reaches about 80% of normal. Retreatment every 3-4 months is recommended to maintain optimal results.
