Botox after carotid stent.
- My concern is why you had the stent.
- You should ask the doctors who treated you for the condition that caused the stent and those that placed the stent - they may want you to wait a few more weeks.
- Then you can have the injections; expect some bruising as the result of aspirin and Plavix. Best wishes.

If you are worried about possible bleeding, it should probably be okay. The needle used for injection is very small. You can always have a test spot first in a small area to see how you do.
To be sure, see two or more board certified and experienced plastic surgeons in your area for a full and complete evaluation.
I hope this helps.
