As the national training center for Botox cosmetic treatments and as a business that maintains a position high within the top one percent of clinics across the country, Skin by Lovely in Santa Monica built a reputation as a highly trusted provider of facial rejuvenation for many Los Angeles residents. The clinic’s professionals, with the voice of experience and authority, recommend avoiding four actions after your Botox treatment.

  1. Avoid massaging, poking, pressing on or rubbing the treatment area for 24 hours after the injection.
  2. Avoid strenuous exercise for six hours after receiving your Botox cosmetic treatment.
  3. Avoid alcohol for 24 hours.
  4. Avoid lying down within the first four hours after the injection.

Additionally, avoid taking anti-inflammatory painkillers, such as Aspirin, for two days before and two days after treatment. This medication reduces your blood’s ability to clot, and the reduced clotting can increase bruising and bleeding after a Botox injection.

When you receive your Botox cosmetic treatments from Skin by Lovely, you receive the utmost in experienced, expert attention regarding care before, during and after a Botox injection.
