8 Things to Avoid Immediately After Botox for Optimal Results

Take a nap

Refrain from lying down for at least four hours post-treatment to prevent the migration of Botox to unintended areas.

Sleep on your side 

After the initial four hours, sleep on your back to avoid putting pressure on your face and potentially causing the product to move.

Hit the gym

Avoid exercise for the first 24 hours post-treatment to minimize blood flow increase, which can lead to swelling and bruising.

Drink alcoholic beverages

Alcohol can dehydrate the skin and increase swelling, potentially causing the product to migrate. It's best to avoid alcohol shortly after treatment.

Rub or touch your face

Avoid rubbing or massaging treated areas to prevent the neurotoxin from spreading, which can lead to undesired effects like drooping eyelids or brows.

Take blood thinners

Avoid blood thinning medications or supplements before and for at least 24 hours after treatment to reduce the risk of excessive bleeding and bruising.

Apply makeup

Wait at least 30 minutes to one hour, preferably 24 hours, after treatment before applying makeup to reduce the risk of infection and complications.

Book a facial

Avoid facials or vigorous face washing for at least one hour post-treatment to minimize pressure on the treated areas, which can affect the distribution of Botox.
