What You Should and Shouldn’t Do After Botox®

Botox® is most commonly used to alter or enhance the way that a person looks. Reducing fine lines and wrinkles as well as tightening loose skin is something that Botox® can help achieve. However, Botox can also be used to treat things that may surprise you, such as excessive sweating or a lazy eye.

While receiving Botox is a relatively simple procedure, there are some essential aftercare tips that people should make a note of. Find out more in this article as we outline what you should and shouldn’t do after having a Botox treatment done.

What you should do after Botox 

Remain upright

Remaining upright for a couple of hours after receiving Botox is vital to avoid pressure building in the treated area. Increased blood flow may cause it to disperse, which could reverse the effects of the treatment.

Move the area

Botox is typically administered in a person’s facial area. Immediately after the procedure, it is recommended that you move your face around, such as repeatedly smiling, frowning or eyebrow lifting. Doing this allows the treatment to reach all of the necessary cells within the area.

Take it easy

Taking it easy after a Botox injection can be helpful for recovery. Engaging in intense physical activities may induce sweating or stress on the body as it adapts to the Botox treatment.

Be patient

Results from Botox injections may not be immediate. It is important to be patient, as Botox can sometimes take a few weeks to take full effect.

What you shouldn’t do after Botox

Don’t apply pressure

Applying pressure to your face after receiving Botox could prevent it from reaching the necessary cells. Avoid washing your face vigorously or sleeping on your stomach.

Don’t apply makeup

Makeup may harm the Botox injection sites, which could cause a build-up of bacteria. If bacteria forms within the areas where it was injected, there is a high risk of infection.

Avoid restricting your facial area

Because most Botox treatments involve the facial area, it is important that you do not restrict your face. After Botox treatments, the facial area needs to breathe so that the treatment can work properly.

Don’t overdo treatments

A lot of people are not immediately satisfied with their results from Botox injections, but it is important that you don’t overdo it. You should not have repeated Botox treatments; it is important to wait a few months before another injection.
