When Can I Workout After A Botox Treatment? (Best Botox Injectors 2021)

When Can I Workout After A Botox Treatment? (Best Botox Injectors 2021)

Hi, welcome back to Advanced Answers, my name’s Leah Brunie and I’m a Nurse Practitioner.

 

We’re going to talk today about How long before you can work out after Botox. Well, how long you should wait to exercise after receiving Botox injection, as a general rule, is usually about four hours or in my case, never.

This includes bending over or lying down. However. 24 hours is the most ideal time to wait before resuming workouts. Proteins need time to get into those muscles after they’ve been injected. The facial expressions made while working out, could make your muscles contract much faster and cause your botox to wear off sooner.

We want that Botox to last as long as possible. Leah Brunie, joined Advanced Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center’s exceptional StudioA Team this month and we are thrilled to have her as part of our non-surgical Injection team.

 

Leah Brunie is a Nurse Practitioner and is super excited to be joining the StudioA Team at the Advanced Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center. I have been a Nurse for almost 20 years. I’ve been a Nurse Practitioner for 13 years, and I have been injecting for the last six years. My journey as an injector in aesthetics started actually in Cairo, Egypt, when I worked with a plastic surgeon. So this has been a continuation of a dream of mine to help women and men feel their absolute best inside and outside.

Botox is a cosmetic procedure that results in younger-looking skin.

It uses botulinum toxin type A in areas where wrinkles form most, such as around the eyes and on the forehead. Botox can also be used to treat migraines and excessive sweating.

One of the most commonly asked questions (especially by people who love to work out) is whether you can exercise after Botox.

Exercise after Botox isn’t recommended for these three main reasons:

It puts pressure on the injection site

After you get Botox, your doctor will caution you to avoid touching your face for at least the first 4 hours.

Adding any pressure could cause the Botox to migrate from where it was injected. It’s also recommended your avoid touching your face because the area might still be sensitive and prone to discomfort.

If you’re someone who often wipes away sweat when working out, you might be applying pressure to your face without even realizing it.

In addition, certain activities, such as cycling or swimming, require head or facial gear that applies pressure to common injection sites.

It increases blood flow

Strenuous exercise means that your heart is really pumping. That’s good for your cardiovascular system, but not so great for your Botox.

Increased blood flow could cause Botox diffusion away from the initial injection site. As a result, it could temporarily paralyze surrounding muscles.

Increased blood pressure can lead to bruising and swelling at the injection site.

It requires too much movement

After getting Botox, it’s important to avoid too many changes in head position. Doing so could also cause the Botox to migrate.

This is a common occurrence even with low-impact exercises, such as yoga or Pilates — meaning that you might be one Downward Dog away from less-than-desired results.

Facial strain from exercise is another concern.

Botox is a cosmetic procedure that reduces the appearance of wrinkles, leaving you with younger-looking skin. To get the most benefits, it’s up to you to follow your doctor’s post-treatment advice.

This includes avoiding any strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours for several reasons. For instance, increased blood flow from an elevated heart rate could cause the Botox to metabolize too quickly and migrate to other areas of the body.

If you experience any serious side effects, such as trouble breathing, blisters, or intense swelling, be sure to call your doctor or visit them right away.

Staying away from the gym, even for the day, might be difficult for some people, but it’s worth it to ensure good results. If nothing else, look at it as an excellent excuse to take a well-deserved rest day.
