What restrictions and regimen should be followed after the Botox application?
Are there any restrictions or does a special regimen need to be followed after the application of Botox? I do not want the procedure to affect my normal activities.

3 hours after application, you must not lie in bad the next six months, the treated region must not be massaged because it will quickly absorb Botox.

Patient should stay upright for the following 4 hours, then avoid sleeping at one side, not to massage the injection area, and to avoid exposing the area to excessive heat or any chemicals or alcohol swabbing for at least 72 hours. And Avoid Anger Facial Expression Movements.

After the treatment you shold not lie down for 2 hours, do not massage the face or do excessive physical effort for 24 - 48 hours. So you can return to work right after the procedure - that's why it is also called "lunch time procedure".

The only thing I advise to my patients is not to laying down or bending for 4 hours. Patients can make just after the injection. I also say that "If you want (not a must)you can move your muscles every 15 minutes for a few hours. This may enhance the effects of Botox theoretically since the toxin will be distributed in muscle." I also say travelling by airplane is also allowed.
The only restrictions are only for the first day after the procedure. You have to avoid excessiv sports, very hot showers as well as hot air of the hair dryer, wearnig a helmet and alcohole drinking. after the first day you can come back to all the above activeties.
