Will exercising right after Botox decrease the results?
If I get some Botox units to my forehead and between eyebrows, then exercise later in the day, do I run the risk of ruining the effects? I have friends that say it’s fine, but I’ve been reading that increased blood flow could diminish the results.
I usually recommend 48-72 hours of no heavy exertion after Botox, partly to limit the ability of the product to migrate and partly to prevent "washout," though I can't say I've ever seen literature strongly suggesting this phenomenon from a scientific standpoint. Your provider should be able to explain policies regarding activity.
