Facial Exercise or Scowling for Working Botox into Muscles?
I had a Botox injection (8 units) for the first time yesterday, for the frown lines between my brows. I was wondering, why I was told to exercise the injected muscle frequently by scowling for the following two days? I thought that the muscle is supposed to be paralyzed, not being exercised. I asked my doctor and she said it's for working the Botox into the muscle. Can someone (preferrably a doctor) give me some more input on this matter because it does not make sense to me. Thank you.
Exercise your face, not your body after Botox
8 units may be a fine amount, and exercising the area won't hurt it.
