How Long After Chemical Peel Can I Get Botox?

How Long After Chemical Peel Can I Get Botox? Chemical peels can give you smoother skin. Unfortunately, they may cause side effects like itching, swelling and redness that your doctor may prescribe painkillers for. You’ll need to soak your skin frequently with warm water while applying moisturizer or other forms of treatment every day.
Avoid scratching or rubbing the treated area as this can lead to infections.

How long does it take?

Chemical peels are designed to rejuvenate skin. You can use them alone or combine them with Botox treatments for more comprehensive results. During a chemical peel treatment you may experience some slight discomfort; however, light peels are painless; no numbing cream or sedative should be required.

Medium peels typically use glycolic or trichloroacetic acid to penetrate both outer and middle layers of skin to exfoliate damaged cells and to promote skin renewal. Your doctor will apply cooling compresses during this procedure; during which, you might feel some stinging and burning for up to 20 minutes as part of its effects.

After receiving a deep peel, your doctor will apply a surgical dressing and prescribe an ointment for use on the treatment area. Healing may take two weeks; they may remain red while this happens. To maximize effectiveness of botox injections and minimize further moves that might affect its effects, try not to rub or massage any treated areas to avoid unnecessary botox movement and disruption.

How much does it cost?

Chemical peels are available as part of cosmetic surgery practices by board-certified plastic surgeons. At your initial consultation, they will assess your skin type and goals to identify which noninvasive procedure would best meet them.

Light chemical peels can exfoliate away damaged outer layers of skin to reveal fresh new tissue underneath, giving your complexion an immediate brightening boost and more vibrant complexion.

Medium peels use glycolic acid to penetrate both outer and middle layers of skin to remove damaged cells, potentially leading to redness, itching, or stinging that lasts for one or more days after.

Deep peels use trichloroacetic acid or phenol to penetrate deeply into both outer and middle layers of skin to dissolve damaged cells, leaving you bandaged with instructions to use an ointment four to six times daily for 14 days or more until new skin grows over the treated area.

Certain skin conditions, like discoloration or fine lines and wrinkles, may require multiple forms of treatment – from laser skin resurfacing to microneedling – in order to achieve your cosmetic goals. When you consult with Dr. Michele Green she will recommend the most suitable plan of action that will meet those goals.

Can I get botox after a chemical peel?

Chemical peels are skin resurfacing treatments that use chemical solutions to exfoliate and improve the look of skin by removing old, damaged cells and stimulating natural fibroblasts in the body to produce new collagen, leading to smoother, firmer skin with even tone and texture.

Light chemical peels – commonly referred to as lunchtime peels – contain alpha- hydroxy acids or another mild acid to penetrate the outermost layer of skin and remove dead cells, improving its complexion. A light peel may be done in an office- based procedure room without any pain relief required, while medium or deep chemical peels may require additional measures like numbing cream or even an anxiolytic.

Deep chemical peels penetrate deeper layers of skin to treat scarring, growths or wrinkles. A deep peel should only be performed at medical spas and requires downtime while your body heals afterwards.

How do I know if I’m a good candidate for botox?

Botox may be ideal for anyone seeking to reduce fine lines and wrinkles without resorting to surgery or undergo any invasive procedure, and who are in generally good health and free from any medical conditions that could compromise its efficacy.

Before scheduling your Botox treatment, it’s advisable to refrain from taking NSAIDs such as aspirin for 48 hours as they can thin the blood and lead to excessive bleeding or bruising. Furthermore, alcohol or any other sedatives should also be avoided before and after receiving Botox treatments.

After receiving Botox injections, it’s generally safe to get a facial within 24-48 hours; however, massage or any other techniques which could potentially disperse botulinum toxins to other areas of your face is best avoided for 24 hours post-facial. Also avoid steam rooms or hot tubs. Rubbing of the treated area afterward could cause it to migrate and lead to temporary facial weakness or dropping.
