Botox is a purified
protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. The product
temporarily blocks the transmission of nerve impulses to the muscles; reducing
the activity in these muscles thus decreasing the appearance of lines/wrinkles.
Cleansing your face on the day of treatment will in no way affect the
outcome of your treatment.

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.
Many patients who come to our clinic want to know if they can bathe after a Botox procedure. The good news is that you can wash your face and bathe as you routinely would, and it won't affect your Botox treatment or your results.
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.
Great question! There are no studies that have shown one way or another that post treatment activities like washing your face are safe or harmful. In my practice we usually tell patients that it's safe to wash your face after Botox injections.Warm water is fine and using a gentle cleanser is also not a problem. There are however always exceptions to the rule; for instance if you have had significant amount of Botox and filers you may receive different post-injection instructions from your physician. Botox injections are generally very safe, so my patients are normally able to resume their daily routines immediately.

It is completely fine to wash your face and shower after your Botox treatment. Warm water will not have an effect on your results.
Thank you for your question. I typically focus my aftercare on restricting activities that make you hot, sweaty or flushed: Examples include strenuous activities, alcohol, saunas, hot baths, etc… This will increase your chance of bruising. If no bruising, by the next day, the you should be good to go. If there is, then I recommend another day to make sure the bruise is not getting worse. I am not as worried about the not laying down after four hours.
Just be gentle for 24 hours
Once Botox is placed within the muscles, causing wrinkles, it is not going to migrate. However, it is recommended to not lie flat for 4 hours afterwards or exercise vigorously for a few hours, wash but be a bit gentle to prevent swelling and try not to rub the area(s) firmly until the following day. Showers are great, warm or cold. The day after Botox injections you can resume all activities. The results of properly placed Botox will balance the upper facial muscles; yielding, a smoother, relaxed and "pretty" appearance.
You can wash your face as normal, you can also take a hot shower. Just avoid laying down for the 1st 2 hours after the treatment.
