Probably OK: No direct interaction with the botox, but ask your doctor about this.
Dr. Olav Jaren
Neurology 19 years experience
Depends: This depends on where you had the botox, but if it was done for cosmetic reasons, there should be no reason why you cannot use the power plate.

Not known: Botox is one of the safest products around but there are some theoretical long term consequences concerning continual weakening of the muscles. Like all muscles not being used, it can cause atrophy. It's not a necessarily bad thing if it's muscles you don't really need. If you have concerns, speak with your doctor about possible side-effects for the muscle groups being treated.
