Getting Botox can be a huge self-confidence booster, especially since it makes you look fresher and younger. It is one of the most sought-after procedures in the beauty world and more and more people are starting to look into it to make them look eternally youthful.
Here are some aftercare tips from Utah Dermatologic & Medical Procedures Clinic that you should follow to make sure you get the most out of your Botox.
1. Avoid touching or rubbing your face
Though what is injected into your face is not a filler and will not move around, the toxin can damage some areas of your face when irritated.
Avoid touching or rubbing your face 24 hours after getting the procedure to make sure that a problem will not arise after getting the procedure done. Too much face rubbing or touching can lead to droopy eyelids or even worse, nerve damage.
2. Do not strain your body too much
Your body needs to heal after getting the procedure, so make sure to avoid doing any strenuous activity after getting the Botox. Sure, you can exercise, but make sure to do light ones for a few days after getting your Botox.
You will feel some soreness and a little bit of pain and tenderness here and there, and you definitely would not want to increase the likeliness of that happening by straining your body.
3. Avoid sleeping on it
Do not sleep on the area that you got your Botox on. Most people get it done on their faces, which means that you definitely should avoid sleeping on your stomach for a few days.
Practice sleeping on your back prior to getting the procedure to make sure that you will get accustomed to it. Sleeping on the said area can do some nerve damage as well and can even cause a case of the sleepy eyes.
Always listen to your doctor about the proper aftercare. They’d most likely discuss it with you and if you have to take notes, then go ahead and do so.
