Even with sensitive and allergic skin structures, the risk of bruising, redness and edema is low. After the botox injected, people can easily continue their daily lives. Many of our patients show up on their lunch break to have botox, and then they can continue their work immediately. Hot water or showering should be avoided for 4 or 5 hours after the botox application.
2-10 days after the injection of Botox, the healing of wrinkles on the skin begins and its effect lasts approximately 5-6 months. The need for recurrence decreases to 1 or 2 years in patients who apply every 6 months.
