Pre-Treatment Instructions:

  • Plan 1 week of no major events in case bruising occurs.
  • Taking blood thinners such as Aspirin, Advil, Aleve, Motrin, Fish Oil, Vitamins A, B, C or E or consuming alcoholic beverages may increase the risk of bruising. Consult your physician prior to stopping any prescribed medication.
  • If you have a history of cold sores, we recommend a course of antiviral medication pre and post treatment in order to prevent an outbreak of cold sores if you are prone to them.

Post-Treatment Instructions:

  • Avoid heat and strenuous activity for 24 hours post injection.
  • Do not lay down, lift or bend over for 4 hours post injection.
  • No face down massages or facials for 24 hours post injection.
  • Avoid wearing make-up for a minimum of 6 hours. 
  • After neurotoxin injections it is normal to have small bumps at the injection site. Do not touch or massage the area.  
  • Although some people react quicker to neurotoxins, the full effect of your treatment can take up to 2 weeks.
