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.
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.

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.
