Can you get laser eye surgery after Botox or filler? Laser eye surgery has become increasingly popular over the years because it\u2019s a safe and effective alternative to glasses and contact lenses. However, as the popularity of Botox and facial fillers continues to grow, you may be left wondering whether you can still undergo laser eye surgery after having these procedures. The answer is not as straightforward as some may think, as it all depends on the type of laser eye surgery you\u2019re interested in and the timing of your Botox or facial filler injections. In this blog post, we\u2019ll discuss how Botox and fillers can affect your candidacy for laser eye surgery and your options if you\u2019re considering both procedures. Can you get laser eye surgery after Botox injections? Botox is a cosmetic injectable that is popular for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. However, we do not recommend having this treatment around the eyes if you plan on having laser eye surgery. This is because Botox may affect the alignment of your eyes1, which can alter your eye measurements and make it more challenging for your surgeon to perform laser eye surgery accurately. If you\u2019ve had Botox injections recently, you should wait at least two weeks before undergoing laser eye surgery. This period will allow the Botox to settle. Can you get laser eye surgery after filler injections? Facial fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm are used to restore volume to the face and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. You should remember that filler injections can cause swelling and bruising around the injection site, affecting the accuracy of your eye measurements. Therefore, we advise waiting at least two weeks after filling injections before undergoing laser eye surgery.2 If you\u2019re considering laser eye surgery, waiting at least two weeks after having Botox or filler injections is best. Remember, laser eye surgery can be life-changing, and you can make the most informed decision with the right knowledge. Book a free assessment with us to learn more about laser eye surgery.
