When it comes to Botox and Dysport, there are a few important tips to keep in mind. Try exercising your treated facial muscles for an hour by smiling, frowning, or squinting to help the product set in. Avoid lying down flat for the first four hours, or doing any strenuous activity for the first six. If you’ve got a facial or spa-day scheduled, postpone it for a day to minimize bruising. Your neuromodulators can take up to a week to take effect, so be patient.
After receiving dermal fillers, it is common to experience mild tenderness, stinging, bruising, or swelling. Don’t worry – these are temporary and can be minimized with a cool compress as well as avoiding pressure or direct contact. Avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, alcohol, or salty foods for 12 hours, and strenuous activity for at least a full day.
Kybella can be a powerful way to reduce fullness in your chin and neck area. After your treatment, you might experience redness, swelling, or bruising. For relief, surround an ice pack with a cloth and ice the treatment area for no longer than 15 minutes at a time. Avoid strenuous exercise for the first few days following your injections. You can also prevent swelling overnight by sleeping with your head elevated.
