Client Instructions Before and Aftercare Botox Treatment

1. IMMEDIATELY AFTER BOTOX TREATMENT

  • The skin may be red and small swellings, similar to mosquito bites, may be visible. These
    disappear within 30 minutes.
  • A bruise may appear.
  • Make-up may be applied with a clean sponge or brush.
  • Do not cool or massage the area.
  • Avoid using a sunbed, as bruising can turn into pigmentation.
  • Do not exercise, go to the sauna or undergo treatment by a beautician during the first 6
    hours.
  • Be careful not to apply too much pressure to the treated area, especially with:
    • Botox in the forehead: do not wear a helmet or lie on a couch in a face recess during the
      first 3 hours.
    • Botox around the eyes and frown: do not wear diving goggles, swimming goggles or ski
      goggles.
    • Botox in the chin: Do not lean on the chin.
    • Botox in the bunny lines/nose: do not put glasses on the nose.

2. 24 UNTIL 48 HOURS AFTER BOTOX TREATMENT

  • A bruise may still be visible. Protect it very well with a UV-protection factor 50 during the time
    that the bruise is visible and do this several times a day. Do not use a sunbed because of the risk of
    pigmentation.
  • When washing or rubbing the face, the treated area can still be sensitive or sore.
  • Some people may experience slight headaches in the first days up to 1 week after the
    treatment, until the botox has fully taken effect. Paracetamol or the use of other painkillers is
    permitted.

3. THE EFFECT AFTER 2 DAYS UNTIL 3 MONTHS WITH BOTOX

  • Everyone needs a unique dosage and therefore has a unique reaction to the botox.
    But in general, the following applies:
  • After 2 weeks, the result of the muscle relaxation is maximally visible.
  • After 4 weeks, most people find the result at its best.
  • After 6 weeks, there may be a little more movement in the muscles. After that, very slowly
    a little more movement returns.
  • After 3 months the botox should no longer be present, but the effect can still be felt because
    the movement is no longer made as often. This applies in particular to the frown. The crow’s feet
    and forehead move more anyway. Many people can experience an effect of the botox 4 to 9
    months after the treatment.

Can the effect of botox be influenced?

Depending on the dosage, the time between treatments and your own response, there may or may
not be any movement visible during the entire period. The cosmetic doctors will gladly discuss this
with you, as it is necessary for a natural and desired result.

 

We believe that lines may still be visible around the eyes, but no static wrinkles.

4. MOST COMMON SIDE EFFECTS WITH BOTOX

  • The botox can accidentally get into an adjacent muscle. This can lead to an undesirable result,
    for example, to a drooping eyelid or a crooked position of the corners of the mouth or the
    eyebrows.
  • Botox can cause a heavy feeling in the eyebrows if the dose is relatively too high.
  • Botox around the eyes can sometimes attract moisture.
  • Untreated muscles can tighten excessively because other muscles have been relaxed with
    botox. This can give an uncomfortable feeling or a different appearance. Usually this disappears
    very quickly and the treated muscles get used to the relaxation.
  • All side effects that are caused by a botox treatment are temporary in nature and always
    disappear within 2 to 6 weeks. When you experience a side effect, please contact the clinic
    during the day for a check-up appointment as from 2 weeks after the treatment.

Side effects from a botox treatment are very rare.

5. HOW BOTOX WORKS

Less wrinkles are formed in the skin through the use of Botox. Existing wrinkles fade away. In
addition, headaches can be reduced and a botox treatment can have a positive effect on acne and
oily skin. The structure of the skin can be embellished. Parts of the face can be lifted, such as
eyebrows and corners of the mouth. The chewing muscles become less strong, reducing clenching
or grinding. And excessive sweating can be prevented. Botox can stop time, as it were, and allow
everyone to retain their natural appearance. By combining it with skin therapy treatments, the
effect can be even more beautiful, or last longer.
