Is it Safe to Wash Your Face After BOTOX® Injections?

is it safe to wash your face after botox injections 6421cc2769878

Have you recently undergone BOTOX injections? If so, you may be wondering if it is safe to wash your face after BOTOX. When receiving BOTOX injections at Infinite, you will receive a complete consultation with thorough education on pre and post treatment instructions.

 Ideally, you should avoid touching your face for the first 24 hours following BOTOX injections to give the formula enough time to settle. If you rub or massage your face, you could accidentally move the solution and disperse it away from your target areas, which may reduce its effectiveness and increase your risk of adverse effects. However, if you must wash your face (this will be decided by you and your provider), a gentle wash is recommended. It is important not to apply significant pressure or massage to the injection areas. 

Our team at Infinite Wellness & Aesthetics in Yarmouth, ME will meet with you for a consultation to evaluate your skin and listen to your goals to help you determine if BOTOX injections are the right treatment for your needs. We will also answer any questions you might have about the care of your skin after undergoing cosmetic injections.

All about BOTOX injections

Do you have wrinkles on your forehead and suffer from Crow’s feet? If so, then BOTOX injections might be an ideal choice to smooth existing wrinkles and help prevent new ones from forming. Dynamic wrinkles form from repetitive expressions, such as frowning, smiling, and squinting.

As you age, the ongoing creasing of your skin causes deep lines to form. Natural aging causes the skin’s production of collagen and elastin to slow, which makes the creases even more pronounced. BOTOX could diminish the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles and give you a more youthful appearance. BOTOX also halts the repetitive movements of the muscles to help prevent new wrinkles and static lines from forming.

BOTOX is formulated from botulinum toxin type A. It effectively halts the movements of the muscles that cause wrinkles to form so that the overlying skin starts to take on a smoother appearance.

Reduce fine lines and wrinkles with BOTOX

The benefits of BOTOX include:

  • Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Helps prevent new lines from forming
  • Minimally invasive
  • Highly effective

Do you have prominent frown lines and Crow’s feet? If so, BOTOX injections might be ideal for smoothing the lines and giving you a younger-looking appearance. BOTOX has also become an extremely popular wrinkle preventive for individuals in their 20s and 30s. When injected, the solution helps slow the development of wrinkles.

During your initial consultation, our team will analyze your skin and create a customized treatment plan to help meet your needs. Following the consultation, our team can inject BOTOX using a fine needle into your problem areas in about ten minutes. Most people report only a slight pinching sensation or a mild pinprick during BOTOX injections.

Following the cosmetic injections, you might experience mild swelling, redness, or bruising, which will resolve in a day or two. You should avoid all strenuous activities and touching your face for the first 24 hours so that the BOTOX solution can settle into the treatment area.
