  1. HOW DO I TREAT MY SKIN AFTER RECEIVING COSMETIC INJECTIONS SUCH AS BOTOX?

After dermal fillers, keep the Arnica gel, Arnica pads, or post procedure product on your face until bedtime.  Prior to bed, use a gentle cleanser and lukewarm water.  Do not use any scubs, facial brushes, or hydroxy acids.  Apply soothing moisturizer.  Do not use hot water for 48 hours.  Avoid hot showers, saunas, facial steaming, facial massage, and exercise for 48 hours.  If you must exercise, try to keep the face cool with an ice filled bottle of water.  Heat makes you more likely to bruise.
