Botox® After Care Advice – it is expected that you will start to see an improvement within 2 or 3 days. The full result may be judged at 2-3 weeks. You may be invited to attend a review appointment at 2-3 weeks where the success of the treatment may be assessed and adjustments to your personal treatment plan made, if necessary.
You will be advised to keep the target muscles inactive for a few hours and to avoid extremes of heat or cold, vigorous exercise, or lying down directly after treatment
Results tend to last 3-4 months. Movement will begin recovering from 6 – 8 weeks. Frequent treatment at intervals of less than 3 months is NOT recommended.
You will be reminded to rebook 10 weeks after treatment.
