Response from Dr. Campbell:
I personally do not make a big deal about lying down after Botox injections with my patients. I just recommend that they do not hang upside down or aggressively massage the area where we treated for the first few hours after the injection. Essentially, we want the Botox to remain in the area where it was placed. This allows it to diffuse into the muscle fibers in order to perform its function appropriately. We certainly do not want to push or direct the Botox outside of the location where it was placed. The fear is that it would then affect some surrounding muscles as an unintended consequence and complication.
I have personally not seen a patient come back to me after having laid down, massaged or rubbed the area that resulted in getting a complication. Therefore, over the years, I have allowed patients to become more active sooner. They can resume normal activities virtually immediately after the injection of Botox.
