3 Important Things When Recovering from Botox in Houston

3 Important Things When Recovering from Botox in Houston

23rd Apr 2013


The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery released its multi-specialty procedural statistics for 2012 last month. Botox topped the list of top five cosmetic minimally-invasive procedures, with roughly 3 million Botox procedures done for last year. If you are living in The Woodlands, Kingwood, Sugarland, Conroe, and Spring areas, we recommend a visit to Dr. Cortes for a session of Botox in Houston.

It doesn’t take long to recover from Botox, particularly when you consider the following recovery tips:

1. Apply cold press and ice pack. Bruising after Botox is common and you can prevent the appearance of Botox by applying a cold compress or ice packs to the injection site.

2. Avoid strenuous activities after your Botox session.  Just relax and avoid massaging, rubbing, or applying pressure to the injection site. Doing the aforementioned will unintentionally shift the medication in other areas, numbing parts that were not supposed to be “numbed” in the first place. Lastly, you might want to keep your head elevated for the first 3 to 4 hours following your Houston Botox appointment.

3. Redness, swelling or bruising may still remain between 3 to 10 days after the procedure. Thus, the importance of doing a follow-up visit with Dr. Cortes. Maintain contact with Dr. Cortes so you can fully report unusual findings or complications.
