Botox injections are not associated with any downtime. In fact, many people return to work or their regular routine immediately following Botox injections. As with any cosmetic injection, there is always a risk of bruising – some areas more so than others. Even with meticulous technique, bruising is sometimes unavoidable during Botox injections. For this reason, it is prudent to have treatments done one to two weeks before a special event. Speak with your practitioner about simple measures to help minimize the risk of bruising prior to your scheduled treatment. Overall, Botox injections are uneventful, but the outcomes are quite impressive!
