Botox and Peels are complimentary

Doing chemical peels and Botox within 3 days is safe and actually the results are complimentary. Frequently we perform both procedures on the same day  with no problems

Wait 2 weeks after botulinum toxin to perform chemical peel

+1

IT should be safe to proceed with a chemical peel 3 days after botulinum toxin but I would recommend that you wait 2 weeks to allow the wrinkles to settle and for the chemical peel to more effectively treat a flat (rather than a wrinkled) skin surface.

Chemical peels can be done after botox

+1

It is safe to do a chemical peel as soon as a full day after the Botox, and certainly you should feel comfortable with doing it three days after.  The two treatments together can be additive in their cosmetic enhancement.

Yes, it is safe, and there is no reason to be worried or concerned of the chemical peeling affecting the 'take' of the previous Botox injections.

No problem with chemical peel 3 days after Botox

Sonya,

Three days is not a problem.  In fact many times for the lighter peels, we do the two treatments at the same time. As noted by others here, the two services work beautifully together. You should not have any problems with the time frame you have mentioned.

Chemmical Peel is Safe

There is really no reason why you could not proceed with a peel 3 days after Botox.  The Botox may enhance the rejuvenative effects of the peel.

Yes, chemical peels before or after Botox are safe

+1

Peels before or after Botox are very safe and, in fact, give better results for rejuvenation. The peel addresses the problems of photoaging (irregular pigment, poor skin texture), while the Botox improves dynamic lines. It is a great one/two punch for non-surgical skin rejuvenation and can even be done on the same day if necessary due to a busy schedule.

Botox and Chemical Peels can be done on the same day

+1

Botox or Dysport is injected into the muscles under the skin whereas Chemical peels are done on the skin so both can be done on the same day if you want.
