Did Patting the Brow Ruin Botox Result?
Received my first Botox injection and was advised to do certain things but I didn't ask how to know when you've done the "bad things" (touched your face, bent over) to the point that you've compromised the treatment or caused some other sort of complication. What are telltale bad signs?
I received Botox injections yesterday morning, and had not yet briefed the hubby. When he came home he surprised me by pressing a kleenex against my forehead. (He thought I was sweaty because my forehead was shiny.) I pulled away pretty quickly but he got a good pat in there before I realized what was happening. In light of the "no facial massage" instructions, I'm worried that I've messed something up.
I'm afraid to wash my face or touch the area in any way. I have a little swelling at the injection sites, which I didn't notice right after the treatment, and a little bit of a headache but nothing that's ruining my day or anything.
I did faint as I was preparing to leave the doc's office yesterday but I have a history of doing that with other injections/blood donations, so I don't immediately associate that with the Botox, but thought I'd mention it just in case. And note that's why I hesitate to phone in a potentially stupid question after causing a spectacle in the waiting room. Thanks for any help.
