How long after Botox® can you get a facial?

Many patients want to know if they can get a facial after Botox®. Facials are often part of a skincare routine, both for the results they bring as well as the enjoyment — they are usually an enjoyable experience.

So, while it may be tempting to keep your regular facial appointment later that day, it’s best if you postpone.

How long after Botox® can you get a facial

It is recommended that you wait at least 24 hours after having Botox® to get a facial. Your skin needs time to heal and facials often involve the rubbing and massaging of the area where Botox® is usually injected.

More aggressive facial treatments, such as chemical peels or microdermabrasion, should be postponed for approximately a week after your Botox® treatment. You will get the best results if you treat your face gently in the first days after your injections.

Why do facials have to wait after Botox®?

The main issue regarding facials after a Botox® treatment, is related to the risk of spreading. You want to avoid all activities that could cause your Botox® injection to spread to other muscles.

Rubbing your face shortly after having Botox® injections can cause the Botox® to spread away from the injection site and into unwanted areas.

Can you get a facial before Botox®?

It’s not a problem to have a facial before you have Botox®. Since most facials are shallow and done only to remove blemishes, acne and refresh the skin you can have both done on the same day. Again, as long as your Botox® treatment is after your facial.
