What Should I Avoid After Dysport Injections?

By February 7, 2022 No Comments
Neuromodulator injections, such as Dysport, are non-surgical injections that do not require recovery. However, for a couple of days after your injections, you may need to slightly modify your routine to promote the best results and treat or prevent side effects. Let’s look at the question, “What should I avoid after Dysport injections?” First off, for the first 24 hours after your Dysport injections, your master injector will recommend avoiding exercising or anything that will get the skin too hot or that may cause sweating. It is also best that if you can avoid blood thinning medications and supplements, including over-the-counter ones such as Ibuprofen, this can help reduce and prevent swelling and bruising. Secondly, while you can return to work and daily activities, try to avoid bending your head forward. This can cause the Dysport to spread as well as increased blood flow which can lead to bruising and swelling. This is generally only for about four to six hours following injections. Finally, avoid drinking alcohol for 24 hours as–similar to blood thinners–can increase bruising and swelling. Additionally, it is just generally not good for the healing process.
