Is it Safe to Lay on My Face After BOTOX® Injections?

One of the most troubling things about growing older is the appearance of the so-called "dynamic" lines and wrinkles that gradually, but inevitably, form across our faces. They've earned their "dynamic" descriptor because they're caused by frowning, smiling, and other facial expressions. To remove them, more than 1.5 million Americans pursue BOTOX treatments every year.

So, if you're sick of creases, Crow's feet, and wrinkles, BOTOX can help eradicate these lines by relaxing the underlying muscles. And our board-certified surgeon, Dr. Mick Singh, would love to help you achieve a more youthful look. So, reach out to us today at Elysium SurgiSpa in Chicago, IL.

Can BOTOX injections have age-reversing results?

Your BOTOX treatment, which relies on the muscle-relaxing powers of a substance derived from a (clean) strain of botulinum toxin type A, begins with a detail-attentive skin analysis. The analysis allows us to identify the areas that could most benefit from treatment and determine an effective plan of action for you. The application of BOTOX is virtually painless, with patients generally only experiencing the slight discomfort of a pinprick or pinching sensation.

Plus, this simple, quick outpatient procedure is so straightforward and convenient we can do it during the same appointment. Since it only requires about ten minutes or so, BOTOX is referred to as the "lunchtime procedure" because one can undergo it on their lunch break and then return to work (or other activities) afterward without missing a beat.

And for even more outstanding results, Dr. Singh can discuss your options for adding complementary treatments that further smooth lines, wrinkles, and other imperfections. These potential supplements include facials, dermal fillers, or laser treatments because you don't need to undergo some intense, painful, or expensive procedure to look younger (and feel more confident) than ever.

For your optimal aesthetic outcome, avoid laying on your face after receiving BOTOX

It's recommended that you do not lay down or sleep within 4 – 6 hours of your BOTOX treatment. As it is not yet entirely absorbed by the tissues within your face, laying down or placing undue stress in this area will increase the chance of it being pushed into other facial regions. There's no need for panic, as this won't cause you any harm. However, this may decrease your results by forcing the substance away from where it's most needed. So, for your optimal outcome in Chicago, you should make the utmost effort to avoid placing pressure on your face, or sleeping on your stomach or sides, on the day of your treatment.

Other than avoiding pressure, there aren't really any precautions following your BOTOX injection. This is one of the reasons so many individuals, even those in their 20s and 30s, are even more excited about pursuing this safe, easy treatment that can result in an optimal aesthetic outcome. So, if you'd love to look younger, and flaunt a more youthful appearance everywhere you go, schedule a consultation with board-certified surgeon Dr. Mick Singh. To get started, all you have to do is get in touch with us at Elysium SurgiSpa in Chicago, IL.
