The first 24 hours

  • Avoid intensive exercise;
  • Avoid alcohol consumption;

The first 2 weeks

After the first 24 hours you can do almost anything again. The only things you need to take into account for 2 weeks are:

  • Postpone facial treatments such as facials, peels and laser treatments.

After the first 2 weeks you can go to the sauna and have a facial treatment again without any worries.

When is the result of botulinum toxin visible?

Botulinum toxin starts to take effect after 3-5 days. After 14 days the effect is optimal and you can assess the result of the treatment. On average, the effect of botulinum toxin lasts 3 to 6 months.
