What Not To Do After Botox
Many of our patients seek out Botox to lessen the appearance of aging and wrinkling skin. Whether it be worry lines, frown lines, or crow’s feet—Botox has an amazing ability to target and improve the appearance of fine lines and more severe creases. Intimidating to some, at Tulsa Surgical Arts, we strive to help you understand your Botox treatment as well as provide detailed before and after care. One question we are often asked is, “what can and can I not do post Botox?”
We have compiled a list of 3 activities that should be avoided:
Most Importantly, No Rubbing
Do Not Lie Down On Your Stomach
While there is no proven effect of lying down immediately following Botox, most still make a ‘soft’ recommendation that it is best to remain upright for the first four hours. If you do lie down, make sure to lie on your back. As the Botox settles, you will want to avoid anything that could ‘squish’ your face. Correct lounging and sleeping habits post treatment can help ensure optimal results.
