Combining med spa treatments can give even better results.
you can see from the other answers here, there are varying opinions on when the
best time to administer a facial is following your BOTOX® session. However,
it’s very common to combine nonsurgical procedures like BOTOX® and facials to
address multiple concerns, or to enhance the effects of both treatments.
Although a facial that includes extractions won’t “dislodge” your BOTOX®, close
coordination with a board certified plastic surgeon who’s experienced with all
different types of med spa treatments is essential for seeing the best results.
Additionally, working out an ongoing treatment program that incorporates a
medical-grade skin care regimen can help minimize future blemishes and keep
your skin looking more youthful for longer with or without BOTOX®.
Botox and acne treatments
Botox is a fabulous treatment for fine lines and generally I don't recommend facials for 24 hours after the injections. The next day you can safely have acne surgery, microdermabrasion, or oxygen facials.
Thank you for your question. Our patients receive their facial prior to their Botox injection. If you decide to receive Botox prior to your facial, just wait at least 14 days before receiving your facial. The facial will not dislodge the Botox, so don't worry and enjoy the facial.
Yes you can! But not right away, we would suggest waiting at
least 4-6 weeks after receiving Botox to have a facial done. A deep facial too
soon could spread the Botox to unwanted areas of the face and the associated
facial muscles causing unwanted side effects.
We recommend patients don't have a facial or any massaging to the face for 24 hours after Botox. After that you can do anything you'd like. While I don't recommend extractions ever, if you do them it's fine because the Botox is in the muscle, not the upper layers of the skin.

Can I have a facial after receiving Botox injections?
I would recommend waiting at least 24 hours after Botox treatment before having Botox injections. However, in my experience, Botox can be injected immediately after the facial if the facial treatment is performed first. I hope this information is helpful for you.
