Botox/Dysport Pre-Injection Instructions

PLEASE FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS PRIOR TO YOUR BOTOX/DYSPORT TREATMENT FOR BEST RESULTS:

  • Do NOT consume alcoholic beverages at least 24 hours prior to treatment (alcohol may thin the blood and increase the risk of bruising)


  • Avoid anti-inflammatory/blood thinning medications, if possible, for a period of 2 weeks before treatment. Medications and supplements such as aspirin, vitamin E, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, St. John’s Wort, Omega 3/Fish Oil supplements, Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve and other NSAIDS have a blood thinning effect and can increase the risk of bruising and swelling after injections. This also includes prescription blood thinners such as Plavix, Warfarin (Coumadin), Eliquis, Xarelto, etc (please consult with your prescribing physician in regards to stopping these medications prior to procedure, as some cannot or should not be stopped).

  • Schedule your appointment at least 2 weeks prior to a special event which you may be attending, such as a wedding or a vacation. Results from injections will take approximately 4 to 7 days to appear. Also, bruising and swelling may be apparent in that time period. 

  • Discontinue Retin-A 2 days before and 2 days after treatment.

  • Reschedule your appointment at least 24 hours in advance if you have a rash, cold sore or blemish on on any possibly being treated. 

  • If you have a history of cold sores please let your provider know, they may put you on an anti-viral medication prior to treatment.

  • Be sure to have a good breakfast, including food and drink before your procedure. This will decrease the chances of lightheadedness during your treatment.

  • You are not a candidate if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

  • Be aware that you may be more sensitive to injections during menstruation.

  • Please arrive to your appointment with a clean face with no make-up.

Botox/Dysport Post-Injection Instructions

PLEASE FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS AFTER YOUR BOTOX/DYSPORT TREATMENT FOR BEST RESULTS:

  • Do NOT manipulate the treated area for 4 hours following treatment.

  • Do NOT receive facial, laser treatments, or microdermabrasion after injections for at least 10 days. Ask your provider if you are not sure about the time frame of certain services.


  • Some providers believe that smiling and frowning right after treatments helps the Botox/Dysport find its way to the muscle into which it was injected after treated.

  • Avoid strenuous exercise for 48 hours.

  • Do NOT lie down for 3 hours after your treatment. This will prevent the toxin from tracking into the orbit of your eye and causing drooping eyelid.

  • It can take approximately 5 to 7 days for results to be seen. If the desired result is not seen after 2 weeks of your treatment you may need additional treatment. You are charged for the amount of product used. Therefore, you will be charged for a product used during any touch-up or subsequent appointments.


  • Do NOT perform activities involving straining, heavy lifting, or vigorous exercise for 6 hours after treatment. This will keep the Botox/Dysport in the injected area and not elsewhere.

  • It is preferred that you wash your face lightly with soap & water only until the following day.
