Can I drink alcohol after Botox injections?

It’s best to avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours after your Botox injections. Here’s why:

  • Increased Bruising: Alcohol can thin the blood and increase the risk of bruising at the injection sites.
  • Potential for Spreading: Alcohol’s vasodilating effects (widening of blood vessels) could theoretically increase blood flow and cause Botox to spread slightly before it settles.
  • Optimal Results: Avoiding alcohol optimizes conditions for the Botox to work effectively.

Bottom Line: While you won’t experience major adverse effects from drinking after Botox, it’s wise to give your body the best chance for successful results and minimize potential side effects.

Prioritize a smooth post-Botox experience – skip the drinks for at least a day after your treatment.
