What is Okay and What to Avoid After Botox©

The following blog post is a quick summary of the few things that are okay and need to be avoided after treatment of the face with Botox©. It is important to seek not only a fellowship-trained but also a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon if you have aesthetic concerns about your face and/or neck.

Avoid Massaging Your Face and Exercise for a Day

It is best to avoid massaging your face or exercising for one to two days after treatment. This reduces the risk of the medication diffusing to areas of the face where it was not originally placed.

It is Okay to Wash Your Face and Apply Makeup Afterwards

However, it is okay to wash your face and apply makeup after treatment. It is normal to have small red dots in a few areas of the face where the medication is administered. And while the skin is gently cleaned before and after treatment these red dots often persist until washed with soap and water at home.

Trust Your Face to a Facial Plastic Surgeon

It is important to seek a fellowship-trained specialist in plastic surgery of the face and neck when you have concerns about your face or neck.
