Is It Safe to get Botox 10 Days After IPL?

Yes, if it's a touchup
10 Days Post-IPL
Of course it is...basically can have botox anytime you want...no specific limits...
even if you had both at the same time, no greater likelihood of problems...all the fuss comes from and overabundance of caution dating from the early days of botox when we didn't have much experience with the neuromodulator...now there's lots of experience and familiarity and there's no issue...maybe important not to lie down right after the botox...but that's probably overblown too...some say get the IPL first and then the botox...even at the same session...if you want to be extra cautious, wait a day or two...but don't worry...

Botox and Laser/ipl
In experienced hands, botox can be safely performed 10 days after a laser or ipl treatment. The combination in the correct patient can provide excellent results.
Yes, Botox is safe after laser treatment
Botox can be safely used after laser therapy with minimal to no risk. I usually advise patients to wait one week between treatments. The two therapies together create a great combination.
Botox is Ok to do one day after IPL
The light source used for IPL can be used the day after your Botox without interfering with the effect of the Botox. The Botox is locked into position within a short time after injection and is not "disabled" with IPL or V-beam laser.
Yes you can!
I usually do IPL first followed by botox. This combination treatment is both safe and gives great results.
Yes, completely safe
Yes, it is completely safe to have Botox right after an IPL treatment, or 10 days after. The two together often provide nice results.
Botox and IPL treatment
You could probably do Botox and IPL on the same day but I'd do the IPL first then the Botox. There certainly no reason why doing Botox 10 days after IPL should be a problem.
