I'm 35 years old female and I got botox in my forehead and restylane filler in my laugh lines on Wednesday afternoon. Will I be able to go out on the weekend and consume alcohol (Vodka)?
When can one consume alcohol after getting botox and restylane filler? (photo)

Botox after care
Alcohol increases bruising
Alcohol consumption can increase your risk of bruising and swelling. Generally, I'd avoid alcohol consumption for 48 hours post-treatment… and for three days to really be on the safe side. Try not to drink excessive amounts and avoid drinking directly from bottles (to avoid the filler moving around from suction).
Botox and Alcohol
There isn't a real contraindication to consuming alcohol after receiving Botox or fillers. With that said, it can increase your risk of bruising, so you may want to abstain from any alcohol for at least 24hrs to help reduce your chances of bruising.

Alcohol after Botox and Fillers
There is no real contraindication to having alcohol after Botox and fillers. It is generally discouraged a little because it thins your blood and increases the chance of a bruise, which is really only a concern with fillers, and rarely an issue with Botox. That said, I recommend no alcohol the same day to minimize any chance of a bruise and/or reduce the duration of a bruise. ~ Dr. Benjamin Barankin, Toronto Dermatology Centre.
Alcohol after fillers or Botox
I don't give any restrictions on alcohol after injections. There are no issues with it, so be safe and have a good time.

When can alcohol be consumed after getting Botox and Restylane?
Different doctors may have different rules as to when they allow patients to have alcohol after treatments like Botox and Restylane, so it is best to check with your injector. Personally, I do not restrict patients from having alcohol immediately after Botox and Restylane treatments.
