Pre-Botox® Instructions

The injections of neuromodulators (Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin®) can cause bruising.  To minimize the chance of bruising it is best to:

  • Avoid aspirin for 10 days (Excedrin, Bufferin).  If this medication is prescribed by your doctor, get permission before discontinuing it.
  • Avoid ibuprofen for 3 days (Motrin, Advil).
  • Alcohol is a mild blood thinner, and can be avoided for 2 days to further improve chances of a bruise free treatment.
  • Acetaminophen (Tylenol) will not increase risk of bruising and is fine to take before and after the procedure.
