Do’s and Don’ts of Botulinum Type A

Follow Celeste Medical!

Do stay upright for 2 hours, try not to lie down flat in this time period. This ensures the Botulinum Type A stays in the cells it has been injected into and will work efficiently. You do not want the Botulinum Type A to spread to unintended muscles.

Do avoid getting too hot and sweaty for 48 hours after treatment. This includes saunas, steam rooms, sunbathing, sun beds. This is because excessive heat causes an increased blood flow and could disperse the Botulinum Type A and it may not last as long.

Do avoid taking anti-inflammatory medications after treatment. These can be blood thinners and can contribute to bruising. Avoid taking Ibruprofen for a few days leading up to treatment also.

Don’t touch the areas that have been treated. Avoid touching the areas for at least 6 hours after treatment. Resist the urge to touch and investigate your skin.  After this time, you can gently cleanse and wash the affected areas with gentle mild pressure.  Use gentle strokes away from the eye area.

Don’t exercise strenuously for at least 24 hours after treatment. It is important to allow the product to settle into the body for the best results for at least 24 hours.

Don’t book a facial, massage, dermapen treatments, laser treatments, or micro-abrasion treatments, for 2 weeks after your treatment.

Don’t drink excessive alcohol for a few days before your anti-wrinkle treatment, and for one day after your treatment. Alcohol thins the blood, and can increase the risk of bruising developing.
