Anti-wrinkle injections using botulinum toxin are one of the best known and popular anti-ageing treatments and can easily improve the look of frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines.

In addition botulinum toxin can also be used to treat fine lines around the lips, a dimpled chin, headaches, and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).

Anti wrinkle injections using botulinum toxin: freshen your look!

Repeated use of your facial muscles to smile, laugh, frown, or look surprised over time causes permanent creases in the skin of the face, particularly around the eyes and in the forehead and frown area. This can create a tired and stressed appearance.

How often will I need to do this treatment?

Patients usually top up Botox treatments at 3-6 month intervals.


  • Gently exercise your face
  • Relax for the rest of the day
  • Maintain a normal heart rate
  • Avoid touching, rubbing, or physical pressure on the affected area
  • Leave the treated area alone
  • Sit up for the first 4 hours after getting Botox. Bending or lying down might spread the toxin and promote bruising.

Don’t drink alcohol

Before getting Botox, you’ll be asked to avoid alcohol for 24 hours. Alcohol increases the risk of bruising.

This holds true after the procedure, too. Wait at least 24 hours after your injection before consuming alcohol.

  • Don’t touch your face
  • To avoid spreading the toxin, don’t touch your face for at least 1 day. Some doctors suggest waiting 3 days.
  • If you got Botox in another part of your body, you should also avoid touching those areas.
  • This includes professional massages on the treated areas. It’s best to schedule your next massage for several days later.
  • Avoid other skin treatments
  • Botox needs some time to settle into the muscle. For the first 24 hours, avoid other skin treatments like:
  • facials
  • facial massages
  • exfoliating scrubs
  • dermal fillers
  • Getting these treatments too soon may reduce the effectiveness of your injections.
  • Don’t sleep on the treated areas
  • Try your best to avoid sleeping on the injected areas. This will minimize the physical pressure and let the Botox settle into your muscles.
  • Also, avoid sleeping within 4 hours after your procedure.
  • Stay out of the sun
  • Avoid sun exposure for at least 4 hours. The heat can promote flushing and increase your blood pressure, which may encourage bruising. To be extra safe, avoid the sun for 24 to 48 hours.
  • It’s also best to avoid other forms of heat exposure, such as:
  • tanning bed
  • hot tubs
  • hot showers or baths
  • saunas
