Botox, Dysport, Xeomin all have FDA label approvals, including treatment of expression lines/facial wrinkles and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). Tox’ blocks the ability of the stimulating nerve to cause contraction of the injected muscle. This does not result in permanent paralysis. It does reduce or substantially eliminate the ability of this injected muscle to contract and produce overlying skin wrinkles. But it is not permanent. Your body metabolizes it in 3 to 4 months.

• Avoid excessively exfoliating your face
• Avoid blood thinners (such as Advil, Ibuprofen, etc.; Tylenol is safe)

• Don’t touch your skin where the Botox was injected. Avoid rubbing and massaging the treated area for 24 hours because you don’t want to make the Botox spread to other unintended muscles.
• Avoid strenuous physical activity.
• Avoid consuming large amounts of alcohol.
• Avoid getting facials, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, etc. for 24 hours.
• Avoid taking the blood thinning medications mentioned above.
• If you get a Tox’ bruise, topical Vitamin K and arnica can help. Green or yellow concealers can also help cover up the bruises.
• Call us at Flash Beauty if you experience any side effects or complications from the Tox’ treatment.
