Botox WON'T cause bulging veins but fillers can... temporarily. Find a board-certified plastic surgeon!

Thank you for your question. I have a busy practice of #Botox and fillers in downtown #Toronto. I use both restylane and juvederm products every day. Botox won't affect the veins with the exception of a <1% chance of little bruising for a few days. Gentle injections and the use of ice should avoid bruising. Fillers close to lower lids and temples can temporarily cause bulging of the veins. Well done, those injections are very powerful in rejuvenating the peri-orbital regions. Precise deep injections should minimize the issue of bulging veins. Finding a board-certified #plasticsurgeon will also minimize this issues as we are trained for 5 years in facial anatomy. Hope this helps! Best, Dr. Marc DuPere, #TorontoPlasticsurgeon, Toronto
