Botox  Cosmetic™  Post  Treatment  Instructions    

 
Botox  Cosmetic™  treatment  involves  the  injection  of  highly  diluted,  individualized  doses  of  botulinum  toxin  A  

into  (or  in  close  proximity  to)  overactive  facial  muscles  or  sweat  glands,  which  are  responsible  for  wrinkles  or  
excessive  sweating  respectively.    Botox®  relaxes  muscle(s)  and/or  sweat  glands  by  diminishing  their  ability  to  
contract.    

 
1.   Exercise  your  treated  muscles  by  performing  10  contractions  every  15  minutes  for  three  hours.      
2.   It  is  important  NOT  to  rub  or  massage  the  treated  areas  for  24  hours  following  treatment.    
3.   Do  not  lie  down  or  do  strenuous  exercise  for  three  hours  after  treatment.    
4.   It  is  possible  that  you  may  experience  a  headache  and/or  flu-­‐like  symptoms  for  approximately  24-­‐48  

hours.    Acetaminophen  (Tylenol)  may  be  taken  for  relief  only.    

a.   Do  not  take  aspirin  containing  products,  Ibuprofen,  Motrin,  Aleve,  Vitamin  E,  or  Fish  oil  for  the  

next  24  hours.    These  agents  may  increase  bruising/bleeding  at  the  injections  site.      

5.   It  is  best  to  avoid  alcohol  intake  beyond  a  single  drink,  glass  of  wine,  or  beer  for  approximately  24  hours  

post-­‐treatment.    

6.   The  redness  and  marks  on  the  treated  areas  will  likely  disappear  within  a  few  hours  after  treatment.    

There  is  a  slight  risk  of  bruising  that  may  last  up  to  one  week.    This  is  always  temporary  and  can  be  treated  
with  Arnica,  which  is  available  for  purchase  or  at  most  health  food  stores  and  is  safe.      

7.   Botox  Cosmetic™  can  take  up  to  two  weeks  for  full  effect.    If  you  feel  that  you  would  desire  more  

relaxation  of  the  muscles  treated,  we  will  address  this  at  your  two  week  follow  up  appointment.      

8.   Results  may  vary.    If  there  is  partial  improvement  of  a  treated  site,  and  re-­‐treatment  is  desired,  a  second  

treatment  may  be  performed.      There  is  a  subsequent  charge  for  any  subsequent  treatments.      

 

Your  follow  up  appointment  is  scheduled  for  ____________________________.    
 

9.   Botox  Cosmetic™  requires  a  special  technique  in  order  to  customize  the  injections  to  your  individual  

muscular  structure.    Therefore,  over  the  next  few  months,  it  is  important  that  your  muscle  activity  
recovers  but  that  your  skin  is  not  creasing  to  the  point  from  where  you  started.    

10.  Botox  Cosmetic™  is  a  temporary  procedure  and  at  first,  you  may  find  that  your  treatment  results  will  last  

approximately  3-­‐4  months.    If  you  maintain  your  treatment  appointments  with  frequency  recommended,  
the  duration  of  each  treatment  result  may  last  longer  than  4  months.    

11.  To  achieve  optimal  results,  you  will  need  to  repeat  Botox  ®  treatments  when  you  notice  recurrent  muscle  

activity  and  crinkling  of  the  skin.      
 
 

Your  next  treatment  is  scheduled  for  ___________________________.    
If  however,  the  muscle  activity  and  fine  crinkling  recurs  prior  to  your  next  treatment  date,  please  contact  us  for  an  
earlier  appointment.
