Recovery from botox and dysport
Post-treatment, patients may experience minor swelling, bleeding, bruising and pain in the treated areas of the skin. The bleeding and swelling will reduce within a few hours and the bruising and pain will take a few days to heal.
Both the Botox and Dysport are extremely skin-friendly and do not lead to infections and allergies. Dysport, in particular, generates lesser anti-bodies than Botox, making it extremely safe to use. However, if you have extremely sensitive skin, you may develop acne-like eruptions But don’t worry. Dr. Kwak will prescribe a strong antibiotic, which will help you recover quickly.
Post-treatment, patients must avoid using their facial muscles extensively for at least 24-48 hours. Recovery takes 2-3 days, after which patients can return to their daily schedule. Both the Botox and Dysport injectable last for a term of 3-4 months, after which you may need to return for another round of treatment. With greater care, the results of these injectable may last up to 6 months.
