Botox After Care Instructions
We want to thank you for choosing the team at DCCM to help meet your aesthetic goals. Now that you have taken the plunge with your Botox (neuromodulator) treatment we want to remind you about your aftercare instructions. This way you can maximize the potential of your treatment.
Please refrain from the use of hats, helmets and visors, as well as facials and massages. The Botox (or neuromodulator) that we put in the muscle needs to set up in the muscle in order to take effect. By restricting blood flow and putting pressure on the muscles in the treated area can cause an unwanted shift in the product and at times can result in an unwanted outcome.
Botox (neuromodulator) takes two full weeks to kick in. As the treatment begins to settle you may want to give us a call to have us add a touch more in that time frame. We will not add more in the treated area within that two weeks time frame. Trust in the process that it will all settle out within the two weeks. Should you need a slight touch up at two weeks, we welcome you to come back in for evaluation. Our goal is to do our best to meet your goals. We really do encourage and love to see all of our clients back at two weeks to be sure your treatment is perfect.
If perhaps you found yourself with a bit of a bruise, we recommend the use of Arnica gel and tablets. Each product formulation is different therefore, we would advise that you follow the specific directions on the back of the branded bottle you purchase. These can be found at the whole foods store right in Hampton or at most pharmacies and or grocery stores.
Want us to let you in on a little secret?
One helpful little trick to improve your Botox (neuromodulator) treatment is being sure you have adequate Zinc in your system. All neuromodulators require Zinc at the nerve terminal so that the neuromodulator can bind to it most effectively. If you feel that your Neuromodulator isn’t as stiff or strong as it has been in the past and we are using the same dose…consider adding zinc supplements 5 days prior to treatment and 5 days post-treatment.
