Now that you’ve had your anti-wrinkle treatment, you want it to look incredible and stay that way for as long as possible.
So, it’s vital that you know how to optimise your results by following the correct anti-wrinkle injections aftercare instructions.
This is the best way to achieve and maintain the best, longest lasting effects of your treatment.
What Should I Avoid After Anti-Wrinkle Injections?
Directly After Your Treatment
Avoid for at least 8 hours following your anti-wrinkle injections:
- Pressing or massaging the injection area
- Lying flat
- Bending forwards
- Rigorous exercise
- Wearing makeup
To minimise the risk of bruising, it’s perfectly fine to lightly apply a covered ice pack to the skin. Just make sure it’s for no longer than 20 minutes at a time, and in 2-hour intervals. Do not apply ice directly to the skin and do not apply pressure.
The Week Following Your Treatment
Avoid for at least 48 hours after anti-wrinkle injections:
- Extreme heat
- Applying excessive pressure to the injection area
Avoid for 3–5 days after anti-wrinkle injections:
- Rubbing the treated area
What Happens in the Months After Anti-Wrinkle Injections?
The visual effects of your anti-wrinkle injection treatment can begin to be seen as early as 3-5 days after your procedure.
However, full results will generally be evident at their maximal best around two weeks following your procedure, and can even improve further.
Overall, results from anti-wrinkle injections last anywhere between 3 and 4 months, after which most patients are ready for their repeat treatment.
