Botox injections are a popular cosmetic procedure that can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. But how long does the effect of Botox last after injection?The effects of Botox can usually be seen within one to three days after the injection. Depending on the problem being treated, the effect may last three months or longer. To maintain the effect, you will need regular follow-up injections.
A facial massage can move the botox if done within 3-4 hours after the injection. However, there is nothing that can be done right now if it has already moved. All side effects will not be permanent and will disappear in 3-4 months. After your first treatment, you may feel a slight feeling of tightness or heaviness, which will decrease in 1 or 2 weeks.
You can usually tell that Botox is starting to disappear when you can see dynamic lines with movement again. To ensure that your Botox injections have enough time to settle into your muscles, avoid lying down for the first four hours after the injection. Both bending and lying down could spread the toxin and cause bruising at the injection site. It is important to find a board-certified doctor to administer Botox treatments.
Not only should you not take any pain relievers before Botox, but you should also not take them after you have taken Botox. Painkillers are actually an anticoagulant, which can cause bruises when you inject Botox. When it comes to headaches, the effects of Botox on migraines were stumbled upon by accident. It is extremely effective in some patients, with longer lasting effects than Botox facial injections. If you had Botox injected into your face, avoid wearing makeup on the day of the injection, as well as the next day.
Sleeping on your back is important because Botox injections need time to settle into your muscles.
