Botox Timeline – How Long Does It Take To Recover From Botox?

POSTED ON: 23rd September 2019

Botox day 1

 

What to expect:

On the day of your procedure you may experience some swelling and bruising at the injection site.

What to do:

Facial exercises such as frowning or squinting may help the Botox take hold.

What to avoid:

Immediately after the procedure you should avoid the following activities:

  • Rubbing or massaging your face
  • Laying down (avoid for at least 4 hours post-procedure)
  • Vigorous exercise
  • Anti-inflammatory painkillers
  • Smoking and drinking alcohol
  • Hot showers, baths or hot tubs

What to expect:

48 hours after the procedure you may still experience some mild swelling and bruising at the site of the injections. You are unlikely to see any results just yet.

What to do:

You can resume your regular exercise routine.

You can now fly without the results of your Botox being affected.

 

Botox day 2

Botox day 3

 

What to expect:

Any bruising and swelling should have reduced.

You probably won’t notice results just yet, however, you may feel some slight tightness at the injection site.

What to expect:

You may start to notice initial results as the muscles start to relax, smoothing out any wrinkles.

 

Botox day 4-6

Botox day 7

 

What to expect:

Your face should start to look more refreshed.

What to do:

You can now have facials or any other treatments that involve putting pressure on the face.

The results of your Botox treatment should now be in full effect, resulting in a smoother more refreshed face.

What to do:

Attend your free follow up appointment.
