Why should I avoid alcohol before treatments?


Alcohol can thin the blood, increasing the risk of bruising. According to Stanford Health Care, individuals should avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours before and after undergoing treatment.

Alcohol can also:

  • Increase blood flow which can increase swelling and dizziness.
  • Reduce the effectiveness of the Botox.
  • Affect healing time
  • Dehydrate the skin, which can lead to cracking.

Anyone experiencing side effects after their treatments, whether or not they have consumed alcohol, should consult their doctor or cosmetic provider.
