Is it okay to exercise after Dysport/Botox and Restylane?
There is no good data on this that I’ve ever seen but I disagree although it doesn’t make the treatment less effective. We ask patients to abstain from really vigorous exercise for 24 to 48 hours because it takes several hours for the Botox to really bind to the receptors and you don’t want to flush it out, right?? It’s too expensive!
Also, in rare cases the exercise (like don’t stand on your head in yoga) could make the Botox or Dysport migrate a little which isn’t good for the results.
Also, all the HA fillers expand some as they absorb fluid from your own tissue. That expansion can rupture tiny blood vessels. It makes you a little more likely to bruise, even on the 2nd day, if you’re really active in the first few days.
Hope this helps, Dr. I
