We like to spend the better half of the weekend spoiling ourselves because we deserve it, right?
A hectic week of work can make anyone want to get treatment. However, it is important to know that all the preparation and stimulation processes do not go together as well, at least not within 24 hours of receiving the injectables.
Injectables must be fixed before someone can rub your skin (like they do for facials). If you receive injections of neurotoxins such as Botox or Dysport, the cosmetic doctor, Haim Victor Cohen recommends to wait a few days (two or three) just to be safe. “There are two reasons: some facialists exert more pressure than others and I would not want someone to move around the Botox before it has time to be absorbed,” he said.
As for filling agents such as Juvéderm, Restylane and Belotero, a day is long enough to wait before getting a facial. “I think as long as you wait a day or two, getting a facial after filling is not difficult. The reason is that most of the fillers are tolerant enough and will not be moved or damaged unless someone really crushes I would avoid a facial for a week if there is had swelling, bruising or cold sores because they can be painful and indicate that it takes longer to heal, “says Dr. Cohen.
The good news is that the wait was not long. Some women worry that getting a facial two months after the injectables may change their appearance, but that is not true. Keep your facial for a week after your dermatologist appointment and everything should be fine.
