Post-Botox Care: What to Expect and How to Maintain Results

After your Botox treatment at Santi, it’s important to follow a few simple guidelines to ensure the best results and a smooth recovery. Here’s what you can expect and how to care for your skin in the days and weeks following your treatment:

Immediate Aftercare:

No Rubbing or Pressure: 

Avoid touching or massaging the treated area for at least 24 hours. This helps prevent the spread of Botox to unintended areas.

Stay Upright: 

Keep your head elevated for the first few hours after treatment. Avoid lying flat or bending over excessively.

Avoid Strenuous Exercise: 

Skip intense workouts for the day to minimize the chance of spreading the Botox.

Limit Alcohol: 

Refrain from consuming excessive alcohol for the first day after treatment as it can increase the risk of bruising.

Cold Compress: 

If you experience any minor swelling or bruising, you can apply a cold compress for short periods.

Days 1-7:

Be Patient: 

It can take several days for the full effects of Botox to become visible. Avoid any touch-ups during this time.

Avoid Saunas and Hot Baths: 

Heat can increase the chances of swelling and bruising. So, stay away from saunas, hot tubs, and hot baths.

No Facial Treatments: 

Skip facials, massages, or other facial treatments for at least a week.

Long-Term Aftercare:

Sun Protection: 

Always wear sunscreen when going outdoors. UV rays can break down Botox more quickly.

Stay Hydrated: 

Drink plenty of water to keep your skin healthy and hydrated.

Follow-Up Appointments: 

Schedule your next Botox appointment as recommended by your practitioner to maintain your results.

Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle: 

A balanced diet and a good skincare routine can complement your Botox treatment.

Remember that individual experiences with Botox can vary. If you have any concerns or questions about your aftercare, don’t hesitate to contact Santi for guidance and support. We’re here to ensure your Botox treatment is a success, and your skin looks and feels its best.
