 What’s normal after a procedure? 

❖ Wrinkle relaxer injections can cause temporary small amounts of swelling, bumps, redness, bruising, tenderness, a mild to moderate headache and sensations such as tingling or mild itching after the treatments. You may also experience a tight sensation or heavy sensation in the treated at the treatment areas which will subside. These effects are so common they can be considered a normal part of the process. 

❖ It will usually take between 3 and 10 days to start to see any muscle relaxing effect and 14 days until the full effect has been reached. 

❖ Treatment benefits start to wear off after 3-4 months on average. 

How to protect your result and reduce side effects:

You may: do small contractions of the muscles treated every 20 minutes for the first hour. If you don't do this - it will not affect your result.

❖ Use Tylenol (acetaminophen) for tenderness if needed

❖ clean your face but When cleansing, avoid pressure and use gentle strokes away from the eyes (24hr). 

❖ For 4 hours:   avoid lying on your side, bending over, and sleeping,

                                  avoid touching the treatment area(s)

❖ For 24 hours: avoid tight-fitting garments over the treated area (i.e. hats, helmets),
                                  avoid strenuous exercise (sprinting, jumping jacks, HIIT, etc.) or

                                  avoid excess alcohol (>2 beverages)

❖ For 48 hours: avoid exposure to UV light and heat (i.e. prolonged direct sun exposure, sauna, steam, sunbeds, hot showers). 


❖ Wait a minimum of 2 weeks before skin resurfacing, chemical peels, semi-/permanent make-up (i.e. lip tinting), facial massage, or laser treatment. 

❖ **Hyperhidrosis clients: Avoid use of anti-perspirant for 24 hours
