Botox is a FDA-approved neuromodulator that relaxes muscles to soften the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
A common question is, can a patient have alcohol after their Botox treatment? The simple answer is No!
Patients are strongly encouraged to avoid consuming alcohol before and after their Botox treatment.
Why avoid alcohol? There are a number of reasons.
Reason number one is that alcohol thins the blood which in turn can increase bruising. When receiving Botox, patients are injected in various areas using needles to pierce the skin. With any injection there is a small chance of bruising. However, drinking alcohol after a Botox injection can worsen a bruise that may otherwise have been unnoticeable under the skin.
Alcohol consumption after a Botox treatment will result in the widening of your blood vessels. This can cause swelling which then leads to additional complications to your Botox injections.
To have optimal and discreet Botox results, avoid alcohol before and 24 hours after a Botox treatment. This is something patients can control on their end to get the best Botox results.
