Another thing that often is not mentioned is head apparel. Women should not wear a head band or anything else that might put pressure across the brow. Men should also not wear a hat as it can be compressing. Compression could cause migration of the botox downwards into the eyelids and lead to droopy eyelids.
Hope this helps!

Awesome question! Botox requires little to no down time. You should avoid touching the injection sites. You do not want to manipulate the area. The injection sites, if red or raised will go back to normal after 10-20 minutes. You can ice if you wish and apply arnica gel to help with irritation or redness.
Botox Rules After Injections
There are a few key rules to remember after having Botox injections. The first and most important rule it to be upright for at least 4 hours after your injections.
-upright for 4 hours after injections
-no exercise for 24 hours after Botox
-no massage of the treated area for 24 hours
-no pressure on the treated area for 24 hours
-ice to prevent any swelling or bruising
If anything seems worrisome please reach out to your board certified dermatologist and always consult an experienced Botox injector.
Instructions after botox injection.
Hi there great question!
Here is a summary of botox aftercare that you should find useful!
1. Don't rub / touch the area and avoid makeup the day of injection
2. Move muscles of the face (i.e. muscle exercises straight after) - improves results!
3. Don't lay down for 4 hours after treatment
4. No excess exercise / sauna or steam room environment for 48 hours
5. Avoid any medications that may induce bleeding such as aspirin
6. Use arnica / ice for any bruising or blemishes
Hope this clear checklist helps!
Pre and Post Neuromodulator Treatment Instructions
Before neuromodulator therapy of any type, avoidance of medications and herbal supplements that increase the risk of bleeding is advised to prevent injection site bruising. Avoid these frequently used products/supplements for one week before therapy, if possible: Any aspirin containing over-the-counter product, NSAIDs (nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs) like ibuprofen and naproxen, rantidine (Zantac), as well as herbal supplements like ginko biloba, garlic, ginseng, fish oil, dong quai, feverfew, and tumeric, as well as high potency vitamin E. I advise patients to avoid taking anything they don't absolutely need to treat a medical condition if bruising is a concern.
Patients should not rub the injection site areas for several hours after the procedure and should avoid laying down or otherwise positioning themselves where the product could potentially diffuse into an unwanted area (low risk but possible). Patients should avoid strenuous exercise for the day following injections to decrease the risk of bruising (due to elevated blood pressure).
Patients are free to return to normal activities 12 hours following injection or the following morning.
