Can I continue my skincare routine after BOTOX injections?

A good skincare routine is a wonderful way to maintain your skin health and stave off the signs of aging and epidermal damage. And, in conjunction with a specialist-formulated BOTOX treatment plan, routine skincare can help you enjoy supple, glowing, luxurious skin that provides a confidence-improving, youthful boost.

However, you should avoid almost all skincare measures after your BOTOX injections to let the BOTOX substance settle properly. It's imperative to avoid anything disrupting this process. Therefore, patients should temporarily suspend most skincare routines, including washing, touching, or applying anything to their faces. Of course, we'll provide more specific aftercare instructions when we see you and a more precise timeline of when you can resume your skincare routine.

Improve the efficiency and effectiveness of BOTOX injections

You can also enjoy the best possible aesthetic outcome by avoiding certain things following your BOTOX treatment. Some activities and substances can increase the risk of bruising or other undesirable effects, like bleeding, so you should avoid alcohol and certain medications, like NSAIDs, blood thinners, and other pain relievers, for around 24 hours after your injections.

Additionally, physical stresses can cause the BOTOX substance to migrate throughout the facial region and diminish your potential results. Patients should forego any physical activities or actions that can interfere with the ability of BOTOX to settle into the muscular and nerve tissues. Therefore, you should refrain from engaging in strenuous exercise or lying on your face for about 24 hours after your injections. Sun exposure should also be limited to keep thermal energy from altering your outcome.

It's also important to note that these timelines are general, and yours will vary depending on numerous criteria, including unique needs and lifestyle factors.

Enjoy a younger-looking, smoother, more supple complexion with BOTOX

BOTOX offers a nonsurgical solution for the unseemly signs of aging, including wrinkles and the dynamic lines that inevitably form due to repeated facial gestures.
