Post-Botox® Instructions

For the best results after neuromodulator injection (Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin®), please follow the instructions below:

  1. Do not lie down or bend over for 4 hours after Botox® treatment.
  2. Refrain from vigorous exercise for the rest of the day (walking is O.K.).  No yoga.
  3. Utilize the muscles injected every few minutes for 30 to 45 minutes to enhance neuromodulator absorption and action. Do this by squinting, frowning, and/or lifting the eyebrows (depending on the area treated).
  4. Do not massage or manipulate the treated area on the day or evening of treatment. You may wash your face normally.  No facials or massages on the day of treatment.
  5. If you experience a headache, you may take Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Advil/Motrin (ibuprofen) immediately after the procedure. Wait until the next day to take aspirin to minimize bruising.
