Botox injection right after IPL?

Botox and IPL
It is not a problem to receive a botox injection after an IPL treatment. The botox is injected into a deeper layer than that treated with the laser. As always, these treatments are best performed by an experienced practitioner. Hope this is helpful.

Botox injections can be done the same day as many other treatments.

Yes, you can get the Botox injection immediately after the IPL treatment. The IPL is limited to superficial layers of your skin. Botox is injected much deeper into the muscle so there will not be any interaction between the two.

IPL and Botox on the same day
Thank you for your question kathwang123. Botox is a great treatment to slim the face when injected into the masseter muscle. IPL photofacial treatment work well to correct sun damage. There have been no studies testing the safety and efficacy of Botox when performed on the same day as an IPL photofacial treatment. So unfortunately we do not know the answer to this question. IPL treatments can generate heat in the skin and heat may lead to movement of Botox, which may lead to side effects. Since I have never tested this, I recommend my patients wait one week between a Botox treatment and an IPL photofacial treatment. However I know many colleagues who are comfortable performing both treatments on the same day. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
