Frequently Asked Questions about Botox® / Xeomin
How Long Do Botox® Results Last?
The duration of Botox®‘s effects can vary based on several factors, including the specific area treated, the individual’s response to the treatment, and the dosage administered. Typically, the results of Botox® injections can last from 3 to 6 months. After this period, the effects gradually diminish, and the muscle activity returns. Follow-up treatments can be scheduled at Skin Technique to maintain the desired results.
How to Prepare for a Botox® Treatment
When preparing for any neuromodulator injection, embrace healthier habits. Ditch harsh skincare and choose nurturing products for daily use. Limit sun exposure and avoid skin-damaging habits like alcohol and smoking.
How long does Botox® take to work?
The effects of Botox® typically become noticeable within 24 to 48 hours after the injection, with the full impact usually evident within 10 to 14 days. Individual response times can vary based on the treatment area and the individual’s response.
How long after Botox® can you lay down?
It’s recommended to avoid lying down for at least 4 hours after receiving Botox® injections. This helps to prevent Botox® from migrating to other areas, which may lead to unwanted effects.
How long after Botox® can you exercise?
It’s generally advised to wait at least 24 hours after Botox® treatment before engaging in demanding physical activity or exercise. This waiting period helps ensure that the Botox® remains in the intended area and reduces the risk of bruising and swelling at the injection sites.
