After the procedure

  • Do not rub or massage the treated areas for 24 hours. This may help prevent the toxin from spreading to a different area. You can return to your normal activities right after the procedure.
  • Do not put make up or creams on to the treated area for 6 hours after treatment.
  • Do not rub or lick any area that has been injected.
  • We do advise against strenuous exercise for 24 hours after the treatment.

Botox injections usually begin working one to three days after treatment. Depending on the problem being treated, the effect may last three months or longer. To maintain the effect, you’ll need regular follow-up injections.
