Botox Post Treatment Instructions

  • No straining, heavy lifting, vigorous exercise for 3-4 hours following treatment. It is now known that it takes the toxin approximately 2 hours to bind itself to the nerve to start its work.  We do not want to increase circulation to that area to wash away the Botox® from where it was injected.
  • Avoid manipulation of area for 3-4 hours following treatment. (For the same reasons listed above.)  This includes not doing a facial, peel, or micro-dermabrasion after treatment with Botox®.  A facial, peel, or micro-dermabrasion can be done in same day only if they are done before the Botox®
  • Treatment can take anywhere from 3-12 days to take full effect.  It is recommended that the patient wait about 2 weeks to see full results. If by any chance the desired effect is not achieved after 2 weeks, please do call our office and we schedule a time for Dr. Solomon to see you again.
