Can I lay down after Botox? It’s only natural to want rest after heading out of your local medspa for aesthetic services, but could it risk your results?
Here’s what you need to know before you snooze after cosmetic injections!
Can I Lay Down After Botox? Why or Why Not?
If you’ve been advised to stay upright after receiving Botox injections, there’s a good reason for it. Keeping your head elevated is a must afterward in order to prevent this beloved injectable from settling into unintended places and causing numbness or from worsening side effects like bruising and swelling.
So, although you’re still allowed to relax, keep your head elevated afterward to keep Botox in its place and keep side effects to a minimum!
How Long Should I Wait to Lay Down After Botox?
Now that you know the answer to your question, “Can I lay down after Botox,” it’s time to figure out how long you should wait to lay down. The ideal time frame is four to six hours after Botox, although if you can stretch it out a bit longer, you should. Sleep after Botox is a bit tricky as well.
It’s recommended that you stay off your stomach and sides while you sleep in order to avoid putting pressure on the injection site. Again, this can worsen side effects and cause your Botox to spread. For the next couple of nights, plan to be a back sleeper if you want to achieve the remarkable Botox results you deserve!
Additionally, your bedding should be clean to minimize irritation and keep dirt and bacteria away from the injection sites.
