What To Do (And Not To Do) After The Treatment?
Whether you came to our clinic to have Botox, a wrinkle dermal filler, a lip filler, a cheek filler, a nose filler, or any other treatment, you should be able to walk out of the clinic and continue with the rest of your day as normal.
In most cases, there will be minimal side-effects. That said, some people do experience mild swelling, bruising and redness.
The good news is that this normally fades quickly, and after 48 hours none of this should normally remain.
There are however a few things you should try to avoid after the treatment:
Similarly to what we advised you not to do before the treatments, we recommend that you avoid painkillers, certain medications, and alcohol for about 2 days after the treatment.
The reason for this is that these elements can interfere with the injections and cause swelling, bruising and potentially make the treatments less effective.
If you are uncertain about what medications to avoid, just ask us. 👍
We recommend that you are careful with touching the areas where the injections were administered. Particularly, we urge you to avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area for about a week.
We also advice you to avoid facials, chemical peels, microdermabrasions, etc. for about a week.
If you put too much pressure on the injections early on, it can make the injections spread to areas where it was not intended.
We would also recommend that you avoid strenuous physical activity for about 48 hours, as this can also make the injections move to areas where treatment was not intended.
We also recommend that you don’t wear tight caps or hats, if this puts pressure on the area that was treated. This could potentially make the treatment less effective.
In addition, we urge you to not scuba-dive or fly during the 2 days following treatment. Changes in pressure can potentially move injections to unintended areas. Also, a tight scuba-diving mask around the injection can have a similar effect.
And lastly, be careful with strong direct sun exposure and high heat (sauna, very hot showers, etc.) for the next 48 hours.
Should you experience any side effects or complications from the treatments, please call us as soon as you can.
Other than that, you can go on with your life as you otherwise would have. 👍
