Botox Brisbane Aftercare Advice
For the best results after your antiwrinkle treatment
Do not touch the area treated for at least 4 hours or it may move the product to neighbouring muscles and cause temporary asymmetry or a temporary droopy eye.
Avoid exercise for 24 hours - it can move the product around and shorten its effect.
Avoid prolonged sun exposure - it can reduce the effect and lifespan.
Avoid too many drinks if you have bruising.
Try not to sleep face down the night after treatment.
If you have had your jaw muscles treated, try to chew gum 4-6 times in the next 24 hours. This helps to integrate the drug through the muscle.
If you notice any sign of infection such as prolonged redness and warmth or a collection, please contact us for review - you may need antibiotics.
If you notice any asymmetry or movement patterns you dislike please contact us via email or via this website's contact form and we will happily correct any issues.
Effects take 3-10 days to show, the effect of treatment depends on the individual and may last 2 to 6 months (3 months is the average).
If you have any bruising it is okay to cover it with makeup, it will usually resolve within the next 3 to 10 days.
DERMAL FILLER AFTERCARE
for the best results from your dermal filler treatment
avoid exercise for 24 hours - it can shorten the lifespan of the gel.
avoid direct sun exposure for the next 24-48 hours, it can dehydrate the gel and the skin will be sensitive as well.
avoid alcohol, ibuprofen and aspirin if you have bruising as this may worsen it.
If you notice any bumps forming, massage the area, for 5 minutes twice a day. Continue this for 3 days. If there is no improvement, make a review appointment and we can correct it at no extra charge.
Swelling is expected - especially in the jaw and lips. We can give you medication to reduce swelling if needed. Your results may look asymmetrical whilst still swollen. Swelling is worse over the next 2 days and may take up to 2 weeks to fully resolve.
