BOTOX® has been FDA-approved as safe and effective. At Persona Medical Spa, we offer this treatment for applications ranging from anti-aging to medical conditions. Although there is no set downtime with this treatment, it’s always a good idea to learn how to best care for your skin after receiving this safe, effective treatment to see the best results.
BOTOX®: What’s Next?
Be Gentle for 24 Hours
As a general rule, avoid rubbing the treated area or applying significant pressure for 24 hours following your injections. Do not get a facial, and do not vigorously massage the treated area.
Avoid Too Much Exercise
BOTOX® does not require any downtime, making it preferable as an anti-aging treatment to extensive procedures, such as facelifts, neck lifts, or brow lifts. It’s okay to go back to your light-to-moderate exercise routine. However, avoid the strenuous exercise for a set amount of time following the treatment.
Heat causes your blood pressure to rise. Do not sit in a sauna or hot tub in the hours following your treatment, as this will increase your body temperature and blood pressure.
Once the BOTOX® solution has been injected, your muscles will begin to relax gradually over the course of three to seven days. You will see the final results of the treatment at around two weeks following your treatment. However, results vary from patient to patient.
The first time you receive this treatment for anti-aging, the results should last for months. However, if you follow expert advice regarding treatment frequency, you may see the treatment lasting anywhere from three to six months!
