BOTOX and Chemical Peel on the Same Day
Since James Christian Cosmetics offers BOTOX® and chemical peels, many clients ask if they can receive a BOTOX treatment the same day as a chemical peel. The answer to this question depends on a number of factors. However, before we get into them, it’s important to understand the difference between the two.
This is one of the most popular treatments for reducing fine lines and wrinkles in a number of places, such as the forehead, mouth, and eyes. Wrinkles around these areas are due to repetitive muscle contractions, and the botulinum toxin paralyzes those muscles to keep the lines away, resulting in a smoother appearance. Results last anywhere from three to six months.
Chemical peels are also popular and they can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, just not as well as BOTOX. The benefit of chemical peels over BOTOX is their ability to lighten scars and even skin tone. Chemical peels involve applying an acid solution to the face. This peels away the top layers of the skin, which leaves behind new, more beautiful skin. Results often last a couple of months.
Combining BOTOX and Chemical Peels
The answer to the question if you can receive BOTOX and chemical peels the same day is maybe. It depends on the sensitivity of the face. Some people can handle the chemical peel and then the injections without much discomfort, while others will not be able to handle it.
The other factor is how many times the person has had either of the treatments. People who have had BOTOX or chemical peels regularly may be able to have them together because the face is used to both of them.
The only way to know if you should have both treatments is to speak to a skincare expert, such as James Christian Sardelli, RPA-C. He has treated thousands of people with both treatments, so he knows what to look for when identifying whether a person can handle both of them the same day.
The good news is if you can’t receive both in one day, a few days is all you need to wait to receive the other one.
Which Treatment Should You Receive First?
You can receive whichever treatment you feel the most comfortable with first. Many people will do the BOTOX treatment first because when they get the chemical peel, they don’t have to worry about that healing before the next appointment.
