Yes, it should be fine to get a Botox treatment after a chemical peel. If you do it in reverse then waiting 2 weeks is optimal.

You will not have any scars from Botox and it will be perfectly safe for you to proceed.  You should be in good shape for your party next weekend and the Botox will have had time to take effect.
