Botox Post Treatment Instructions
1.Try to exercise your treated muscles for 2-3 hours after treatment (e.g. practice frowning, raising your eyebrows or squinting). This helps to work 8OTOX ® into your muscles. Although this is thought to help, it will NOT impact your treatment negatively if you forget to do this.
2.Do NOT rub or massage the treated areas for 24 hours after your treatment.
3.Do NOT apply make-up for 4 hours after your treatment.
4.Do NOT lie down or do strenuous exercise for 4 hours after treatment. Feel free to shower and go about most other regular daily activities.
5.Be assured that any tiny bumps or marks will go away within a few hours after your treatment.
6.Results of your treatment may take up to 14 days to take full effect.
7.Your 2 to 3 week follow up appointment is booked for ____________________________
8.We strive to fully satisfy our patients with each treatment. If you have any questions about your treatment, then please do not hesitate to contact our office on Tel: 01525 40 30 40. We will arrange for a follow-up assessment.
9.The results of your 8OTOX ® treatment are not permanent. You may find that your results will last approximately 3 or 4 months. If you maintain your treatment appointments with the frequency recommended by your injector the duration of each treatment result may last longer than 4 months.
10.Initially, we see our patients between the 3 month (12 weeks) and 4 month (16 weeks) time period. The best clinical results can be achieved for you during this period. If you allow 8OTOX® to completely wear off, it is difficult for the injector to be able to see how your individual muscles reacted and therefore optimal results for YOUR face can be more difficult to achieve.
11.8OTOX ® requires a special technique in order to customise the injections to your individual muscular structure. Thus, it is important that your injector sees you before your muscles resume the full range of motion (and cause wrinkling again). Your injector needs to see you at the point when some muscle activity resumes, but before the effects of 8OTOX ® fully wear off. It is only at this point that an injector can customise the treatment to give you the best effect for your face.
12.Our clinic will need to see you in ________________ weeks/months (To be completed by the doctor/Nurse Practitioner ). Please ensure you book this appointment before you leave our office today. Your next appointment is scheduled for ________________________________________________.
