How do you treat bruising and red marks, tiny scabs after Botox?

Bruising after Botox
These are normal findings after Botox treatment, and the redness and small spots of dried blood at the injection sites will be gone before 24 hours in most instances. You can wash the dried blood off within 30 minutes of treatment, and I actually wipe the areas clean with water before the patient leaves. Bruising will persist longer, but can be limited by avoiding aspirin, ibuprofen and Aleve (NSAID medications) for a week before injections. I hope that this helps.

Botox and bruising
Botox is a fabulous injection for removing wrinkles in the face. If you are bruising consistently from Botox I wonder if you are taking any vitamins or medications that are contributing to the bruising. Please consult a board certified dermatologist for the best cosmetic results and I would suggest taking Arnica before your next Botox injections.
Bruising and Red Marks after Botox Injections May Need Ice, Arnica, Pills, Cream or Pulsed Dye Laser
If it persists, we might consider using the pulsed dye laser for this — but this is not commonly needed.
Bruising can be reduced by avoiding alcohol, ibuprofen and ASA products 10 days prior to receiving Botox.
Hope this helps.
Bruising and Scabbing After Botox ???
Any minor scabs at the injection site should wash away within 24 hours. Bruising, if you get any at all, usually goes away in several days.
For worse bruising, gentle treatments with a vascular laser will help speed the process.
To be sure, see two or more board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have these treatments.
I hope this helps.
