Tips for Botox Recovery
February 4th, 2014
The recovery process for any type of surgery is critical, especially those on the face. When having Botox injections, the recovery time is fairly short, and patients can return to work or their regular scheduled activities the same day. If you’re thinking of heading out for Botox injections, here are a few tips to help speed up the recovery process and provide you with the optimal results.
Use the right products. Many of the doctors who carry Shinso Skincare products apply them immediately after Botox injections to help the patient heal quicker (around 70% to 80% faster). After having Botox injections, a patient’s face will be a bit swollen. Shinso Skincare helps to reduce the inflammation in as little as 10 minutes. It’s best to apply these products daily during the recovery process at-home. The anti-aging benefits will help magnify the results of the Botox as well.
Avoid strenuous exercise. As with any procedure, doctors advise to avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours after the injections. Normal activities can be continued that same day, but just be extra careful.
Avoid laying down. Your doctor will probably advise you to not lay down for four to five hours after the treatment. Many patients get Botox done earlier in the day or around lunchtime, which makes this tip easy to follow.
Do not massage or touch the area. Besides applying a product (like I mentioned above), try to avoid touching, massaging or rubbing your face, since this could exaggerate the swelling or produce redness. Slight bruising may occur in some patients, and this would just aggravate the skin more. The last thing you want after having Botox is to draw attention to your face for the wrong reasons!
Remember- every person reacts to these procedures in different ways, so be careful to talk to your doctor beforehand and after.
