Local anesthesia one week after Botox

+1

It is ok to have local anesthesia in the mouth one week after treatment with Botox, as there are no known contraindications between the two. I would recommend discussing your Botox treatment with your physician who will be administering the anesthesia. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.

Local anesthesia one week after Botox injections

Within 20 to 90 minutes after neurotoxins such as Botox, Dysport or Xeomin are injected, botulinum neurotoxin type A can be detected inside the motor nerve endings. Therefore the muscles and nerve endings take up the Botox, Dysport or Xeomin very quickly before they can spread far from the injection site. There are no restrictions to having local anesthesia after your Botox injection.

Local Anesthesia after Botox

It is safe to have local Anesthesia in the mouth, one week after Botox for crows feet. In fact, the areas are not related, so you could even see your dentist one day after seeing your dermatologist for a Botox treatment of your periocular lines.
