Aftercare Advice

Botox Injections

Anti-Wrinkle Aftercare

  • Some patients experience slight discomfort around the treatment area for a short time after treatment

 

  • Please ensure to sit up right for 4hrs after treatment and avoid laying down or leaning forward to avoid placement movement of the  antiwrinkle treatment.

 

  • Bruising can be avoided or minimised by avoiding aspirin, ibuprofen and alcohol for 24 hours pre & post treatment

 

  • You may experience temporary swelling within a day or two. Some patients experience a headache following treatment for which you may take paracetamol.

 

  • The results are not permanent and the duration will differ from patient to patient.

 

  • The treatment normally takes 4-10 days to take effect.

 

  • Side effects, if they occur, are usually temporary and mild to moderate.

 

  • This type of treatment lasts approximately 3-6months in total and movement will start to return anytime.

 

  • Please ensure to allow at least three weeks before having antiwrinkle treatment after a COVID jab or allow 3 weeks after antiwrinkle treatment before having a COVID jab due to possible interactions and complications.

Dermal Filler Aftercare

  • Bruising can be avoided or minimised by avoiding aspirin, ibuprofen and alcohol for 24 hours pre & post treatment.

  • Immediately after the treatment, there may be slight redness, swelling tenderness and an itching sensation in the treated area. This is a normal result of the injection.

  • The inconvenience is temporary and generally disappears after a day or two.

  • If the inconvenience continues or if other reactions occur, please contact the practice.

  • Apply an ice pack to the treated area, this will reduce initial swelling.

  • If you are having lip treatment the initial swelling may last longer.

  • It can last for about a week and the lips may look somewhat uneven during this time, therefore, the result directly after this treatment should not be seen as the final result.

  • Avoid touching the treated area within 6 hours following the treatment.

  • After that, light make up can be applied and the area gently washed with soap and water.

  • Until the initial swelling and redness have resolved, do not expose the treated area to intense heat (eg solarium or sunbathing) or extreme cold – advised to wait at least 10-14 days.

  • Please avoid strenuous exercise for at least 24hrs or until swelling has resolved.

  • If you have previously suffered from facial cold sores, there is a risk that the needle punctures could contribute to another eruption of cold sores.

  • If you are using aspirin or any similar medication, be aware that these may increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site.

  • Since the dermal filler is absorbed, the correction effect reduces over time.

  • Most people choose to be treated again within six months of the original treatment.

  • Please ensure to allow at least three weeks before having dermal filler after a COVID jab or allow 3 weeks after dermal filler before having a COVID jab due to possible interactions and complications.
