What are the Botox post-procedural restrictions, if any, and how can they affect a patient in a negative way?
Despite the fact that the Botox treatment is a quick and most of the times, simple procedure, there are usually some indications that a person must follow after the treatment. First of all, in the first day after the procedure, you should not rub that area where the Botox has been injected or bend your head down or exercise. Also, very hot showers as well as hot air from the hairdryer, helmets and alcohol are also prohibited during the first day after treatment. You should also avoid angry facial expressions. For the next two weeks after the treatment, the Renew Skin & Health Clinic specialists recommend no antibiotics or anti-inflammatories intakes, as well as no sauna, artificial skin tanning, facials or massages in the treated area(s).
It may seem that there are a lot of restrictions, but usually, the specialist only tells the patients not to lie down for the next 4-6 hours, and give a personalized regime of interdiction, if necessary, for each individual. Every Botox treatment in terms of quantities and method of injection are different according to each patient’s wrinkle severity, skin type, etc. That is why at Renew Skin & Health Clinic, people from Liverpool and not only, must first undergo a consultation during which our GP or specialist will ensure all the details that have to be taken into consideration before and after the procedure, while also assessing their medical history and current health condition, to reduce or prevent possible future complications or risks and to ensure optimum results that our clients will be satisfied with.
