3 months ago, I had Botox and Restylane (lips). I've had them many times before successfully. This time, though, I went out that same night and had a bunch of drinks. To my dismay...about 80% of the effects disappeared!! No Dr. ever told me not to drink. I was very upset that I wasted my money! Have you had this happen to your patients?
Botox and Restylane Results Affected by Alcohol?

Alcohol and Botox | Does it affect the results?
Alcohol should have no effect on the result or duration of effect after botox treatment. You were likely under-treated.
Alcohol should not affect Botox or Restylane

Botox Result Most Likely Unrelated to Alcohol
It's unfortunate that you're unhappy with the results of your recent botox and Restylane injections. Although your injections occurred following significant alcohol consumption, your poor result probably isn't related to this event. Alcohol has no effect on either botox or juvéderm. For this reason other explanations are probably more likely.
It's important that you contact your injector as soon as possible. This provider will hopefully determine why your injections didn't work and correct your aesthetic concerns.
Botullinum Toxin (Dysport and Botox) and alcohol
Although alcohol may cause fluid retention and may increasing bleeding tendencies (potential for addiional bruising), there are no studies suggesting any interaction or diminished Botullinum Toxin (Dysport and Botox) and Restylane effects.
Alcohol and fillers and Botox
There are no studies that suggest any effects of alcohol on the "take" of Botox or fillers.
Botox and Restylane results affected by alcohol
Again there is NO medical studies showing that alcohol effects the treatments of Botox or fillers in any way. Maybe you were still hung over and swollen (alcohol causes fluid retention) when you looked at yourself.
