Recovery time from injectables
Especially compared to surgical procedures, injectable treatments offer quick results with very little downtime. This is one of the many reasons why injectables are so popular.
Botox and Dysport
Patients can resume their regular activities immediately after Botox or Dysport. There may be tiny pink dots immediately after treatment, but these vanish in about half an hour. Some patients also experience some light bruising, which fades within a week. Results should become apparent within a few days after having the procedure, and will continue to improve for up to a month.
Of all the injectable treatments, Kybella has the longest recovery time. Patients may experience up to 21 days of swelling, and the treated area may feel uncomfortable. They may have some difficulty swallowing, or may feel pressure on their neck. The treated area may also feel loose, like jelly.
There is more swelling and bruising with dermal fillers than with neuromodulators, but these side effects are temporary, lasting anywhere from a few hours to a few days. If the swelling lasts any longer than this, please contact us.
