Are Botox Treatments Painful?
Though Botox treatments involve injections, the injections themselves are small and the pain is minimal. In rare cases, Botox might cause flu-like symptoms or a fleeting headache, and the injection site might turn red. A patient who has had a Botox treatment must not lie down within four hours after the injections, and must not engage in strenuous activity within the next 24 hours.
Facials, sun exposure, massage, alcohol, tanning salons, makeup and heat packs must likewise be avoided. Sterile makeup may be used; what’s important is that for 24 hours after treatment, the injection sites are kept clean and sweat-free.
Botox treatments must also be avoided by pregnant or lactating women as well as those with neurological disorders. If you have a cold, the flu, or any other infection, you should wait before having a Botox treatment, as well.
