Is It Safe to Get Fraxel and Botox at the Same Time?

I am interested in Fraxel for the face, and would also like to get Botox. Will Botox interfere with any of the healing process? Thanks.

Fraxel and Botox together

Thank you for your question. It is always better to wait or to split them. You can either get your botox done before Fraxel procedure or a few  weeks after.  At the end of the day, you should discuss this with your provider.  If they are comfortable doing it at the same time, then you should take their expert opinion.  Hope this helps.

Get the Botox at least 2 days before laser treament

 To be on the safe side, I would leave 2 days between.  We have seen patients that have had the Botox migrate, most likely from the swelling associated with the laser procedure. This can lead to undesired results.  Take care.
