Prepare for Your Jeauveau & Botox Treatment

Botox and Dysport - Bella Medical Spa Arizona

Pre Care:

  • Start drinking more water at least 3 days before your injections. Cut down on salty foods.
  • For lip flips: If you get cold sores, text our office a week before your appointment to get a prescription. Include your date of birth, pharmacy phone number, and any allergies.
  • Avoid caffeine before your appointment to reduce bleeding, bruising, and pain.
  • Schedule your injections 3 to 4 weeks before any big events.
  • Don’t drink alcohol 24 hours before. You can bring coffee to drink after your appointment.

Post Care:

  • If you have trouble breathing, swallowing, talking, or any life-threatening symptoms, call 911.
  • Rare flu-like symptoms may last 2-3 days. Drink fluids, rest, and take Tylenol or Motrin as directed. Report to NP Karla via office phone (not social media).
  • Jeuveau/Botox will start working in 2 to 14 days and peak in about 2 weeks. If you need more, it won’t be added until 14 days after your first appointment. Results last 3 to 4 months on average. More units can mean longer-lasting results.


  • Don’t lie down or bend over for 3 hours after injections.
  • Don’t massage your face for 24 hours. You can wash your face normally tonight but avoid massaging the injected area.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise or anything that raises your core body temperature for 48 hours.
  • No hats or headbands for 48 hours.
  • Keep pets away from the area for 48 hours to avoid infection.

May Be Seen:

  • Small bumps at the injection sites are normal and should go away in a few hours.
  • Bruising may happen and should heal within a week. Arnica Montana can help with bruising.
  • Headaches are possible; take OTC Ibuprofen or acetaminophen as needed.
  • Sensitive or blurry vision can happen for 2-3 days. Wear sunglasses and use moisturizing eye drops.
  • You can use cosmetics, moisturizers, and lotions the next day but be gentle.
  • Moving the treated muscles (like making faces) can help the product settle faster but doesn’t affect how well it works.
