Could acupuncture on the face interfere with injectibles like Botox, Dysport or fillers?
Okay…..that could really be just too many needles for one day! J Really not a good idea……unless you’re getting the treatments done the same day with the acupuncture before the injectible.
Don’t have acupuncture treatments after Botox/Dysport or injectibles on the same day. It could cause the Botox/Dysport to migrate, it could cause more bruising and you really want to stay upright (not laying down) for about 6-8 hours after Botox/Dysport while it “sets.” Meaning that it’s binding to the particular muscle that’s being injected.
Once Botox/Dysport are “bound” to the muscle, they don’t migrate. Fillers can migrate sometimes a little in the first few days with pressure so avoid facial treatments for at least a few days after fillers. Ask YOUR doctor/nurse for specific instructions for you on this.
Hope this helps, Dr. I
