Subcision Treatments Performed At Or Around The Time Of Botox Injections Should Be No Problem
Botox is not uncommonly injected in tiny amounts around fresh surgical wounds as a means of decreasing the amount of muscular movement in the surrounding region in order to reduce the chance of the development of a a stretch scar. So, certainly, if it is injected even during the same treatment session as a subcision, it should not present any problem at all. Personally, I have in fact performed subcision for acne scars in the temple and upper cheek regions during the same session as the injection of crow's feet and forehead wrinkles with Botox.
Thank you for your question AnotherEarthling. Botox is a purified protein used to address wrinkles associated with facial expression. Subcision is a treatment to address acne scars. For my patients I would recommend doing a Botox treatment first and a subcision treatment one week or more after.
with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
Subcision and Botox Not Likely to Overlap
Botox is generally for the frown, crows feet, or forehead. Subcision for acne scars is frequently for the cheeks. They are in different areas and treating them at the same time should be fine.
As long as subcision is done a week after or before getting Botox it should be fine.
Acne scar subcision and Botox timing
Botox is performed on the muscles creating expression lines and creases or to rebalance facial expression primarily of the forehead, brows, crows feet and less often around the lips and DAO muscle of the jawline.
Acne scars are primarily over the cheeks and uncommonly overlap in areas where Botox is injected.
If there are no other issues, you can have both done at the same time or wait 24 hours after Botox for it to fully absorb into the muscle and then return for the subcision.
Good luck with this and finding a job. Happy New Year!
Subscision can be done in sites away from the botox injection if done at the same time. If you wait a few days to a week, you can probably do it in the same area.
