Try to exercise your treated muscles for 1 to 2 hours after treatment (e.g. practice frowning, raising your eyebrows, or squinting). This helps to work BOTOX Cosmetic into your muscles. Although this is thought to help, it will NOT impact your treatment negatively if you forget to do this.
Do NOT rub or massage the treated areas for 2 hours after your treatment. Do NOT do strenuous exercise for 4 hours after treatment. Also avoid facials or saunas for 4 hours after your treatment.
Do NOT lie down on the area for 4 hours after treatment.
Be assured that any tiny bumps or marks will go away within a few hours. If you need to apply make-up within 4 hours after treatment, only use a GENTLE touch to avoid rubbing the treated area.
Results of your treatment may take up to 14 days to take full effect. Please wait until the 14 days have passed before assessing whether or not you are pleased with the result.
BOTOX Cosmetic is a temporary procedure. At first, you may find that your treatment results will last approximately 3 to 4 months. If you maintain your treatment appointments with the frequency recommended by Dr. Michele, the duration of each treatment result may last longer than 4 months.
If you allow BOTOX Cosmetics to completely wear off, it is difficult for Dr. Michele to be able to see how your individual muscles reacted; consequently, the optimal results for your face can be more difficult to achieve.
