Botox Injection and Eyebrow Waxing, Plucking, Threading, and Tweezing

Botox® Cosmetic is a great option to help reduce wrinkles and smooth the skin in the forehead and around the eyes. Many DC area women, and some men, frequently have their eyebrows regularly groomed, either at a salon or done by themselves. My Washington DC Botox patients often ask if they can have an eyebrow waxing after Botox injection.

Most DC plastic surgeons and dermatologists suggest avoiding any eyebrow or skin treatment around the eyes and eyebrow for least the first day after Botox Cosmetic injections. This restriction includes other similar wrinkle relaxers Dysport® and Xeomin®, in addition to skin treatments such as skin care, microdermabrasion, and facial massages. Some DC cosmetic specialists will encourage 1 week for this restriction. After 2 weeks, it should be OK to get eyebrows waxed or tweezed following your Botox Cosmetic treatment. Always check with your Botox injector regarding any concerns you may have.

      Thank you for reading the blog.

      Similar to Botox, many plastic surgeons and dermatologists suggest waiting 2 weeks after Xeomin injections. Circumstances may vary, so people should always speak with their injector.

      Best,
