Pre & Post Care - Botox®

Hartford | Avon CT

  1. BOTOX® treatments typically consist of several injections using a very small needle. To minimize the chance of getting a bruise from your BOTOX® treatment, it is recommended that you stay off medications and supplements that may thin the blood. Common examples of these are listed below. Consult your physician before discontinuing any medications or supplements that have been prescribed or recommended for you for medical reasons.
  2. Supplement / Medication Stop # Days Prior to Procedure
    Fish Oil 10 Days
    Aspirin or Aspirin Products 7 Days
    Advil, Motrin, Ibuprofen, other NSAIDS 3 Days
    Vitamin E 3 Days
  3. Although many patients do not bruise after a BOTOX® treatment, if a bruise should occur, it may be visible in the treated area for as long as 7-10 days. Make sure to consider this when selecting a date for your treatment.
  4. Other treatments, such as laser, Ultherapy, Eraser treatment, IPL, microdermabrasion, and peels, should not be done on the same day as BOTOX®. These treatments can stimulate blood flow or deliver heat to the skin which may promote bruising and reduce the effectiveness of BOTOX®.
  5. No massages, hats, heat or pressure to be applied to the treated area for 6 hours after the procedure. This includes no hot tubs, saunas, sweaty exercise or lying down.
  6. It typically takes 2-3 days for BOTOX® to take effect and up to 14 days for the full effect of the treatment to be established. Follow-up appointments are recommended 2 weeks after treatment.

  • I walked into Medspa Radiance in Avon for the first time today. I'm at a very low point. The staff could have easily taken advantage of my vulnerability. Instead they were honest and said the service I was interested in wasn't for me. They didn't rush to try to sell me anything else. They were honest, ethical and showed ...
