Aftercare Botox


After a treatment with Botulinum A toxin, it is wise to:

  • The first two hours use no makeup because there are small puncture holes.
  • The first 2 to 4 hours after the treatment not lie down or bend over.
  • The first 24 hours avoid a visit to the sauna.
  • Clean the skin with the products you normally use (no scrubbing).
  • Smear any blue spots with a high sun protection factor because under the influence of sun blue spots can turn into pigment spots.
  • Not massaging the treated area for the first 24 hours

After 2 to 7 days the Botox starts to work. With 10 to 14 days, the result is optimum. After 1 to 2 weeks I’ll see you back for a checkup. This is to evaluate if you and I both are satisfied. A possibly necessary touch-up is for free.


Side effects

After a treatment with Botox, you may experience a number of direct consequences:

  • a bruised sensation in the treated area,
  • tingling and a stiff or heavy feeling in the forehead. Some people experience this as a slight headache.
  • when handling the chin or lift the corners of the mouth it can occur that it has a slight effect on the lower lip.

The above-mentioned side effects are considered as normal and limited to the first two weeks after the treatment and pull away by itself.


The effect of a botulinum treatment lasts in average for 3 months or more, but differs individually.
