Caring for Your Skin After Botox Treatments

Botox procedures are highly safe. However, after your treatment, there are some measures you can take to assure that you get the best results and avoid any discomfort that might occur. So, after you come in for an appointment at Botoxiue’s botox clinic in Tacoma, consider taking the following steps for a short while:

  • Six hours after your treatment, gently clean the treated area with soap and water.
  • Exercise your muscles. Practice smiling and frowning every hour or so to stimulate the treated area.
  • Protect the treated area from the sun. If you’re going outside, apply a sunscreen or wear a wide-brimmed hat.
  • Are you experiencing any swelling, bruising, or pain within the first twenty-four hours? A simple ice pack wrapped in a cloth should do the trick. Apply it to the region for thirty minutes at a time as needed. After the thirty-six hour mark, switch over to heat packs. Do not apply heat for more than twenty minutes out of every hour.
