BOTOX®  |  DYSPORT®  |  XEOMEN®

  • Do not bed over or lay flat for a minimum of 4 hours following treatment.
  • Do not rub, massage or apply pressure to the treated region for a minimum of 4 hours after treatment. This includes applying make-up, facial cleansers or creams, or wearing a hat, scarf, headband or any other garment or accessory that may put pressure on the treatment region.
  • Try to sleep propped up on a few pillows to help any swelling that could possibly occur.
  • The following are normal experiences that can occur following treatment:
    • Tenderness or mild bruising at the injection site
    • A mild headache or absence of headache
    • Although rare, there is the potential to experience mild flu-like symptoms
  • Asymmetry is possible: Opposite sides of your face, and different facial regions may react at different times to treatment. This is normal. If asymmetry is not corrected within 7-10 days following your injection, please contact me.
  • The neurotoxin will begin to take effect within 3 to 6 days following treatment, with full benefits by 2 weeks. The neurotoxin will inhibit your ability to make certain expressions and will soften and relax the associated expression lines. However, it may take several treatments to diminish deeper expression lines.
  • Follow-up treatment is recommended approximately every 3-4 months for frown lines and facial expression treatment and every 6 months for treatment for excessive perspiration, or when you notice your conditions are returning to a pre-treatment state. However, you may call our office at any time with your concerns or for needed follow-up.
  • The effect of the neurotoxin on your inability to make certain facial expressions will last 3 or 4 months. Once you notice movement is returning to the treated facial regions, it is important to repeat your treatment. If treatment is not repeated, your expression lines and the resulting facial creases will return.
  • The effects of neurotoxins are compounding. With each subsequent treatment deeper lines and creases will continue to improve.

LIPS + DERMAL FILLER

  • You will likely be swollen after the procedure. You may also notice some redness or bruising at the injection sites, which is normal. Most side effects will be minor, and you will be able to resume most activities once the procedure is done.
  • Apply ice to the injection site afterward using an ice pack or an ice cube covered in cloth (so it doesn’t stick to the lip and cause pain). This will help reduce swelling, bruising, and pain.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 to 48 hours after you get lip or any other dermal fillers. Elevated blood pressure and heart rate from exercise may make swelling or bruising worse. You can take Arnica for bruising, It is fine to engage in light activity like walking.
  • Stay hydrated. Drinking plenty of water will help your body heal.
  • Try to avoid excess sodium, which may worsen swelling.
  • Avoid high temperatures like steam rooms, saunas, or heated exercise classes for 48 hours after treatment. High heat can make swelling more pronounced.
  • Normally Tylenol will be fine, but not blood-thinning medications like ibuprofen.
  • Try to sleep with your head elevated on pillows to reduce swelling. Do not sleep on your face.
  • Please do not massage anything if you randomly get a lump or bump, contact me. A warm compress and gentle massage can be effective and may be advised, but keyword gentle!
  • Avoid makeup on your lips for up to 24 hours after.
  • I strongly encourage you to pre-book your next appointment in advance. My availability is limited due to the amount of patients I see, causing my schedule to fill up extremely quickly.
  • The Nurse Dacy Post Lip Treatment Trio is available for purchase on my website and is very effective at reducing swelling, bruising, and discomfort. Grab your here: nursedacy.com
