Dr. J MD, an American Board Certified Physician suggests that for 24 hours after Botox® injections, avoid touching, rubbing, or intense exercise. Stay upright following the treatment. Alcohol, saunas, and hot tubs can affect outcomes. For a few hours after injections, avoid makeup. Avoid blood thinners, anti-inflammatories, and sunshine. Attend recommended follow-ups. Results take a few days to appear and two weeks to fully effect. These instructions and consulting your physician provide optimal outcomes and prevent problems.
