Avoid Touching and Rubbing

First things first, resist the urge to touch or rub the treated areas for at least four hours after your treatment. This helps to prevent any disruption to the injected substances and allows them to settle properly.

Steer Clear of Makeup

For the first four hours following your treatment, it’s best to avoid applying makeup to the treated areas. This gives your skin time to recover without any interference from cosmetic products.

Say No to Extreme Temperatures

Extreme heat or cold can exacerbate swelling and discomfort, so for the first week post-treatment, try to avoid exposure to extreme temperatures. This means steering clear of saunas, hot tubs, and icy conditions.

Take It Easy on Alcohol and Exercise

While a glass of wine might sound tempting after your treatment, it’s best to abstain from alcohol for the first 24 hours. Similarly, heavy exercise should be avoided during this time to prevent excessive sweating, which can interfere with the treated areas.

Shield Yourself from the Sun

UV radiation can worsen redness and swelling, so it’s important to stay out of direct sunlight until these symptoms have resolved. If you do need to go outside, be sure to wear a wide-brimmed hat and apply sunscreen with a high SPF.

Follow Up with Your Provider

Finally, don’t forget to schedule a follow-up appointment with your provider. They can assess your results and address any concerns you may have about your treatment.

Taking care of your skin post-treatment is essential for achieving the best possible outcome. By following these aftercare guidelines, you can help ensure that your Botox® or dermal filler treatment goes smoothly and leaves you looking and feeling your best.
