After care


Following your antiwrinkle treatment, you will feel slight tenderness and swelling at the injection sites. You may also notice some slight bruising to some sites. If you have had treatment to your upper face, you may experience a headache afterwards. This is all normal and should subside over the coming days. Below is a list of post treatment instructions to promote healing.


  • Do not touch the treatment sites as this can increase the chances of infection and the product spreading to another muscle.

  • No strenuous exercise for the next 24 hours

  • No other facial or aesthetic treatments to the area for a minimum of 2 weeks

  • No face down massages for the next 48 hours.

  • No active skincare (retinoids/vitamin A / AHA’s) products for 24 hours after treatment.

  • The product takes 14 days for full effect and it is recommended to attend a review at this time to assess the treatment outcome.




The following symptoms are NOT considered a normal reaction following an antiwrinkle treatment. If you have any of the below symptoms, notify us immediately so we can organize a review in person.

  • A ptosis (droop) of the eyelid, eyebrow or lower face.

  • Prolonged redness swelling and/or heat to the injection sites.

  • Prolonged itchy or burning sensation to the treatment area.

  • Extensive bruising or swelling

  • Double or blurred vision

  • Difficulty speaking or saying words

What to expect:

  • Your anti-wrinkle treatment will not work immediately. Results will start to be seen on day 3-5 with full effects at day 14. 

  • Please don't judge results until day 14 and in some cases day 28. Trust the process. Asymmetry can be normal when the medication is taking effect and should resolve. If there are any issues, we can address this at your two-week review. 

  • You may experience a headache, please take paracetamol if this occurs. 

  • By day 14, you will have limited movement to the treated areas depending on the dosage used. As the weeks pass by, you will start to get your normal movement back gradually. This does not mean the treatment is unsuccessful, this is how it works. 

  • Anti-wrinkle injections typically last anywhere from 2-6 months dependent on the dosage used, location of treatments & how your body metabolises the product.

    If at any stage you have any concerns regarding your treatment, please do not hesitate to contact FORME Aesthetics by email or phone call.
