It is recommended to discontinue the use of Aspirin, Motrin, Gingko Biloba, Garlic, Flax Oil, Cod Liver Oil, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, or any other essential fatty acids at least 3 days to 1 week before and after treatment to minimize bruising or bleeding. Please consult with your primary physician prior to discontinuing any medications.
It is recommended to avoid alcohol, caffeine, Niacin supplement, high-sodium foods, high sugar foods, refined carbohydrates, spicy foods, and cigarettes 24-48 hours before and after your treatment. (All of these factors may increase risk of bruising and swelling).
If you develop a cold/flu, OR cold sore, blemish, or rash, etc. in the area to be treated prior to your appointment, we recommend that you please reschedule your appointment until it resolves.
It is recommended that you wait at least 1 weeks to have botulinum toxin treatments performed if you have previously had cosmetic treatments with microneedling, laser, ultrasound, peels, facials or micro-dermabrasion.
You are not a candidate for tox if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Do NOT lie head down flat, touch, or rub the treated areas for at least 4 hours.
Try to avoid Aspirin, Motrin, Gingko Biloba, Garlic, Flax Oil, Cod Liver Oil, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, or any other essential fatty acids at least 3 days to 1 week after treatment. These items may increase bleeding and bruising.
Try to avoid alcohol, caffeine, Niacin supplement, high-sodium foods, high sugar foods, refined carbohydrates, spicy foods, and cigarettes 24-48 hours after your treatment. These items may contribute to increased swelling or irritation.
Avoid the use of Retin-A or similar products (ex. Kinerase, Tazarac) 2 days after treatment to avoid increased irritation or redness.
Avoid cosmetic treatments such as laser, ultrasound, peels, facials or micro-dermabrasion for 1 week after treatment with Jeuveau® or Botox®.
Try to avoid wearing makeup for 1-2 hours after treatment. Earlier use may cause "pimples." If you must wear makeup we recommend a good quality mineral makeup for the face applied with a clean brush.
Please report to your provider if any increased pain, increased swelling, redness, blisters, or itching immediately, should it occur following your treatment.
The treatment may take 2-10 days to take full effect. It is recommended that the touchup, if needed, be done 2 weeks after the initial treatment.
Avoid wearing hats or headbands after treatment.
