NEUROTOXIN INJECTIONS

Post-Operative Instructions for Neurotoxin Injections

Usage
Neurotoxin Injections are used for the improvement of fine lines and wrinkles caused by aging, heredity, gravity, sun damage, and muscle action.

Risks and Complications
Side effects experienced by patients who have had Neurotoxin Injections include: headache, bruising, pain during injections, asymmetry (one side different than the other), twitching, numbness, and temporary drooping of eyelids or eyebrows.

Pregnancy
Patients who are taking aminoglycoside and antibiotics, penicillamine, quinine, and calcium channel blockers can not have Neurotoxin Injections.

Treatment
Injection of a very small amount of Neurotoxin Injections into the specific muscle causes weakness or paralysis of that muscle. This results in relaxation of the muscle and improvement of the lines that the muscle action has formed.

This response usually is seen 2-6 days after injection. Typically, the muscle action will return in 3 to 5 months and a repeat treatment can be done.

Post-operative Care
Stay erect; do not lie down for at least 4 hours.

Do not massage the area.
During the next 2 to 4 hours, squint and raise the eyebrow area as much as possible.
