Avoid Massaging Your Face and Exercise for a Day
It is best to avoid massaging your face or exercising for one to two days after treatment. This reduces the risk of the medication diffusing to areas of the face where it was not originally placed.
It is Okay to Wash Your Face and Apply Makeup Afterwards
However, it is okay to wash your face and apply makeup after treatment. It is normal to have small red dots in a few areas of the face where the medication is administered. And while the skin is gently cleaned before and after treatment these red dots often persist until washed with soap and water at home.
Trust Your Face to a Facial Plastic Surgeon
It is important to seek a fellowship-trained specialist in plastic surgery of the face and neck when you have concerns about your face or neck.
