How Long After Juvederm and Botox Can I Use Retin-A Micro?

I started using Retin-A Micro 24 hrs after juvederm and Botox in my face. Can this degrade or move the product? Can it affect it in any other way? Thank you.

How long after Juvederm & Botox can I use Retin A micro?

I would recommend waiting a couple of days to be sure the injection sites have healed up otherwise the Retin A micro could be more irritating to those areas.  Otherwise there is no contraindication.

Retin-A safe to use with Juvederm and Botox

Use of Retin-A will not degrade or negatively affect your Juvederm or Botox treatments.  It is safe to continue your use of this medicine with both those therapies.

Retin-A and Juvederm

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

I would recommend waiting about 48-72 hours after a Juvederm treatment before resuming your Retin-A regimen.  If you develop a lot of swelling (rare), you may want to wait about 1 week.

Using retin-a after Juvaderm won't degrade the product

You can start using your retin-a the night of your injections if you want. If your skin is more sensitive around the injection points, just avoid that area for a few days, but overall it will not degrade or hurt the product. I recommend using retin-a only at night to avoid any photosenstivity throughout the day. And remember, always apply a sunscreen in the morning to prevent further sun damage.

Your skin may be a little sensitive for a few days after juvederm injections but you should not have any problems with either Botox or Juvederm because of the use of Juvederm.

Retin A after Juvederm

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

You may definitely safely apply Retin-A right away after injection of Juvéderm. We are the largest user of Juvéderm in the Midwest, and I don't think twice about Retin-A use.

I hope this eases your mind!

Retin A safe after Botox and Juvederm

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

The small injection sites made with the Botox and Juvederm needles will heal within an hour or two so any topical should be fine to use after this amount of time.  I'm sure you will love your results!

Safe to use Retin-A after Botox and Juvederm

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

It is perfectly safe to use Retin-A (including Retin-A Micro) right after Botox or dermal filler injections like Juvederm, Restylane.  If used properly Retin-A is great for your skin and it certainly will not effect the injection treatments in any way.
