I plan on getting Botox in the early afternoon. Would it be fine, by nightfall, to take a hot shower (my usual routine)? Also, how do you recommend cleansing the face after Botox? In the sink or shower okay? Also, is warm water okay? Please advise. Thanks.

Post Botox Activities
You should be able to return to your normal daily routine, including exercise, cleansing face, showering with hot water, etc. without 1.5 hours. Take care not to stand in the hot shower too long or bump your injection sites so as to minimize bruising or swelling. As long as you are treated by a licensed and trained injector such as a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist, you should be fine.
Instructions after Botox
These are excellent questions. You should feel free to continue your normal cleansing routines as long as you understand the following:
After care instructions for Botox are designed to further minimize the already small chance of bruising: avoid aspirin and ibuprofen, heavy exercise and anything else that makes you hot and red (note: a long hot shower or time in the sauna can cause dilation of the vessels).

Botox aftercare instructions
Thank you for your question cici99fromcali. Botox is a purified protein used to address wrinkles associated with facial expression such as those between the brow seen when one frowns. After a Botox treatment I recommend that my patients avoid heat exposure, alcohol consumption, and strenuous exercise for 24 hours after the treatment. I recommend to them that gentle washing with cold or tepid water is ok, but to avoid hot showers for 24 hours.
with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
Can washing or make up affect Botox
Normal routine activités should not affect your Botox result. Especially after an hour or so. Hope this helps.
Bathing and washing your face after a Botox treatment.
I would, however, recommend you avoid massaging the treated areas, exercising or lying flat for the first 2 hours after your treatment. The day after Botox injections you can resume all activities.
