For the study, 11 women got Botox injections in their foreheads. One group did facial exercises in the four hours after the treatment and the other group went about their day as usual. In the women who worked their faces, the Botox reduced fine lines and wrinkles after just two to three days compared to three to four days in those who didn’t. The results would also hold true for men.
For forehead injections, raise and knit your brows following treatment. Doing this in any capacity could help, but Alam recommends completing 3 sets of 40 reps, 10 minutes apart for 4 hours after treatment. That might sound like a lot, but the study participants found it doable.
