Safety is our middle name.

As with any kind of injection treatment, there are risks and side effects involved with injectable treatments that you should know about before going under the needle. The good news, though, is that these treatments are pretty low-risk, especially when carried out by qualified practitioners, like at EQlibrium clinic in Addlestone/ Weybridge.

What are the side effects and risks of Botox?

Okay, let’s start with some side effects you could encounter. Most of these can be treated effectively with paracetamol and topical treatments, or by simply waiting for them to pass – so there’s not much to worry about! But, sometimes treatment results in:

  • A headache or flu symptoms
  • Some swelling and redness in the treated areas
  • Slight bruising and tenderness around the points of injection
  • Minor bleeding around injection sites
  • Dizziness and nausea

The above side effects might be quite annoying  but they should disappear shortly after the treatment.

Our safety practises ensure we have minimal risks and complications.

Botox aftercare instructions

After antiwrinkle treatments we recommend

  • maintain a normal heart rate,
  • avoid touching, rubbing, or physical pressure on the affected area
  • leave the treated area alone

as this can disperse the anti wrinkle treatment and increase the risk of bruising.

Wait 24 hours to exercise

If exercise is part of your daily routine, wait at least 24 hours to work out.

Physical activity increases blood flow. This could potentially spread the toxin to unintended areas and reduce its effectiveness at the injection site. It also increases the risk of bruising. Sweating is also more likely to increase chances of infection.

Go makeup-free

If you received a Botox injection in your face, take a break from makeup for 24 hours. Applying makeup will rub the skin, potentially dispersing the toxin to somewhere it wasn’t injected

Sit up

Sit up for the first 4 hours after getting Botox. Bending or lying down might spread the toxin and promote bruising.

Avoid other skin treatments

Botox needs some time to settle into the muscle. For the first 3 days, avoid other skin treatments like:

  • facials
  • facial massages
  • exfoliating scrubs
  • dermal filler

Getting these treatments too soon may reduce the effectiveness of your injections.

Can I drink alcohol before my treatment?

Drinking alcohol is not recommended before a treatment as it can thin the blood leading to a higher risk of bruising and swelling.

How can I prepare for my treatment ?

  • Taking arnica supplements before your treatment can help minimise risk of bruising
  • Staying hydrated can help minimise risk of bruising and swelling.
  • Let your practitioner know prior to the treatment if you are on any blood thinning medications.
