Can Botox cause Acne?


Acne is not a side effect of Botox. If a breakout occurs following treatment with Botox, it is likely a coincidence. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.

Can botox cause acne?


Botox does not cause acne, if a numbing cream was applied to the skin before treatment or make-up was not properly removed, this could have caused a break out

Botox does not cause acne to my knowledge nor in my ~ 20 years experience. Acne is a very common problem and most likely just coincindental.
