I am trying to quit but am stuck at 1-2 a day. However, I am wondering if it normal for people who smoke to receive restylane, juvederm, botox, etc. Please let me know if this is fine. Thank you, Deni
Can You Smoke and Get Dermal Fillers?

Fillers and Smoking
I have several patients that smoke and do well with fillers. In my opinion, the results do not last as long as they do in the nonsmokers. Unlike surgery, incisional healing is not of concern. Perhaps having the filler placed will help you to quit completely.
Patients who smoke get fillers all the time and do great.
Smoking is not a contraindication to getting fillers and botox. It is done all the time and without problems usually. Sincerely,
Smoking and fillers
Smoking itself can cause more facial depression lines especially aorund the mouth. It can also impact wound healing. You can have fillers but be wary of the risks associated with smoking.

Smoking and Wrinkle Fillers
Why bother with fillers if you smoke?
As has been said, smoking is not a contradiciion to fillers like it is in surgery but since smokers wrinkle and purse their lips more than others, why bother with expensive fillers until you quit smoking???
Fillers in Patients Who Smoke
There is no contraindication to treatments with fillers while you are an active smoker. However, your risk of bruising and swelling is greater. Good luck with your efforts at smoking cessation.
