Downtime: What to Avoid
Although you’ll be able to return to your regular day, common side effects after receiving Botox injections are mild swelling and redness at the injection sites. These should subside after an hour. Bruising is also possible.
Although there’s no major downtime with Botox, there are some physical restrictions:
- Do not lie down for four hours after treatment
- Do not exercise or undergo strenuous activity for 24 hours
- Do not have a facial or massage for a couple of days
