If you are thinking, what should I do for the best recovery after having BOTOX®? We are here to help you out and let you know what is best for you and what is not.
1. Wait For 24 Hours
Do you know what BOTOX is? It is a cosmetic drug that contains neurotoxin onabotulinumtoxinA, and it is produced by the bacteria. This bacteria is called Clostridium botulinum. BOTOX is actually a diluted toxin that stops your muscles to contract.
As a result, you will have less severe wrinkles after BOTOX. But you have to wait for 24 hours before you do anything else.
You must not do anything that requires a great effort or energy of yours. This is because the toxins will move from the main parts and will spread in the body. As a result, the effectiveness will be reduced at a higher level. Moreover, doing this will also cause bruises.
2. Do not Sleep For Few Hours.
After the treatment, there are chances that you might be sore, or you might be tired. But laying down is not a solution here. Rather, you must not lay down for few hours after the treatment. Bending down or laying down may spread the toxins, and as a result, you will get bruises.
You can get relaxed but relax in such a way that it does not affect the treated area. Suppose you are too tired. Then you can set the alarm to let you know that you have to wait for a while.
3. Wearing Makeup
Suppose you have undergone BOTOX treatment. Then you must not apply the makeup and avoid it on the days of treatment and 24 hours after that. Even if you apply the makeup, then do not rub it. Only you have to do is dab on your face.
Just like exercise can disperse the toxins, rubbing your skin can also disperse the toxins to different parts of your body. Try to go makeup-free for a day at least.
4. Direct Sunlight
Avoid getting direct sunlight on your face. You must also avoid applying sunscreen at least after 24 hours of the treatment. The direct sunlight can affect the sensitive areas of your skin, and you will ultimately get the bruises. To avoid the bruises, you must not go into the sunlight.
5. Avoid Touching Your Face
After BOTOX, you will feel a little sourness or discomfort on your face. But you should avoid touching your face no matter what happens. Touching can not only move the toxins from one place to another, but it can cause several other problems too.
You can get bruises due to touching. And you can also get severe pain after touching. As the part is sensitive, you can even get yourself harm while touching your face, and as a result, you can destroy your whole new look because of your impatience. So, you must avoid doing such a thing that will ruin it.
