Botulinum Toxin Injections - BOTOX ®
Good to know
Some minor redness and swelling may persist between 20–30 minutes after the injections. Patients can resume their normal activities after the session.
During the 24 hours following the injection of botulinum toxin, patients must refrain from playing sports or any extreme exertion and avoid exposing the treated areas to high temperatures (sun, sauna, hammam).
Avoid facial manipulations and massages as well as wearing a cap, helmet, swimming goggles or a hat that is too tight.
Full recovery of muscle contractions normally takes 4–6 months, after which time, treatment will need to be repeated in order to maintain the relaxed appearance.
*During your consultation, Dr Trevidic will show you examples of before and after cases.
The minimal risks following the injection of botulinum toxin should not be overestimated:
-Pain, redness, or bruising at the injection site.
-Sense of tension, immobility of the forehead, mouth or neck, depending on the areas injected which may persist for several days.
-Migration of the product, causing it to diffuse into other muscles, is very rare, but it can cause temporary side effects such as sagging of the upper eyelid or eyebrows.
