Not after 2 hours: Swimming after getting a Botox treatment should not be a problem as long as it is at least 2 hours after or whatever length of time your physician recommends. All the best.

I wouldn't : You should ask your plastic surgeon who injected you with the botox. But i wouldn't recommend it.
