Our Botox practitioners at the Renew Skin & Health Clinic branch in Birmingham can help you with an effective, safe and highly effective Botox treatment for your problematic wrinkle area. The GP or specialist performing the first consultation will give you all the necessary instructions that are to be followed both before and after the Botox treatment performed with us in Birmingham. Regarding the after care, first of all you should not forget to contract the targeted muscles areas that were injected with Botox for up to 4 hours after the treatment, by doing frowning movements and lifting the eyebrows as to allow the botulinum toxin to spread all over the treated muscles.
Secondly, you should avoid rubbing or touching the injected area, stay away from facial massages for at least 48 hours, in this way ensuring that the treatment remains in place. You will also be recommended not to exercise or drink alcohol for the next 48 hours. As minimal bruising may appear, our practitioner recommends you to use arnica cream, but this too, with very gentle movements. And with mild pain, a simple Paracetamol intake will work wonders. Again, our practitioner at the Renew Skin & Health Clinic branch in Birmingham will offer all the information you may require prior and following the Botox procedure.
