What can I expect after having had a botox treatment?
It is important to keep your head up straight as much as possible after the treatment. You may not lie down, nor do sports or rub your face until 3 hours after the botox treatment has been given.
However, it is very important to use the treated muscle(s) after the treatment as much as possible. Our doctors who do injectables advise flexing the treated muscle(s) as much as possible by frowning, for example. You should do this when the muscles in the forehead have been injected.
We also kindly ask you to refrain from using any make-up. It is also not advisable to have a facial massage in the first few days.
It takes time for the injected botox to take effect. After two weeks, the final results will be visible. The wrinkles will have become shallower.
Botox injections give temporary results. In most cases, the results are visible for six months to nine months. It is possible, though not guaranteed, that the effects will last longer after multiple botox treatments.
