Make Sure Your Treatment Is Successful

Discover how to prepare for your Botox appointment in East Brunswick, NJ

In order for your Botox®️ or dermal fillers to last, you'll need to follow the necessary instructions for how to prepare. Effortless Contours Aesthetics, LLC makes sure you're familiar with all the expectations when you book your appointment.

It takes five to ten days for results to appear, so we recommend having your appointment two weeks prior to any special events. Before treatment, you'll need to...

  • Refrain from alcohol for the 24 hours leading up to your appointment
  • Avoid anti-inflammatory and blood-thinning medications for two weeks
  • Inform our specialist of any history of frequent cold sores
  • Discontinue Retin-A for two days before and after treatment
  • Eat a full and balanced breakfast the morning of your treatment

If you develop rashes, blemishes or cold sores before your appointment, please reach out at least 24-hours in advance to reschedule. Connect with our specialist in East Brunswick, NJ today for more information.

Don't forget to follow post-treatment care guidelines

Once your treatment is done, it's time to start the post-treatment care stage. You'll need to avoid...

  • Manipulating the treated area for three hours after
  • Receiving facial laser treatments for 10 days after
  • Lying down for four hours after treatment
  • Performing strenuous activities for six hours after
  • Moving significantly or massaging the area
  • Exercising intensely for 24 hours after
  • Exposing the area to intense sun or heat for 72 hours
  • Consuming excess amounts of alcohol or salts

For discomfort, use Tylenol, Arnica and cold compresses. Sleeping face-up and elevated also helps prevent swelling. Ask any questions about care to our specialist today.
