What can you not do after Botox for migraines? Don’t lie down for at least 3 hours after receiving Botox. Don’t go into any saunas, hot tubs, or tanning booths for at least 4 hours. This helps to prevent bruising, because heat can raise your blood pressure. Otherwise, you can resume your regular activities right after getting Botox.
What are the side effects of Botox for migraines?

Does Botox for migraines work immediately? After you receive Botox injections, it may take 10 to 14 days or longer for you to experience relief. In some cases, you may not experience any relief from your symptoms following your first set of injections. Additional treatments may prove more effective.
How do you know if Botox is working for migraines? If you have migraine pain in one particular spot, you may need more shots there. You could see results 2 to 3 weeks after your first treatment. You should only get this type of Botox treatment from a doctor who’s trained to give these shots for chronic migraine headaches rather than for wrinkles or other cosmetic uses.
