Botox and dermarolling?
« on: December 29, 2012, 06:40:08 PM »
Hi - Thank you for all of your research and answers to our concerns.  My question is if receiving botox treatments in any way will interfere with the dermarolling, or if using a longer length needle would somehow effect the efficacy of the botox?  Thanks

It will not affect the efficacy of Botox, but do not perform any kind of microneedling over the botoxed area for the first two weeks. It can take up to two weeks for Botox to maximally paralyze the muscle (by blocking the receptors on the muscle).

Not even the longest needles used in microneedling reach the muscles but wait for two weeks anyway.
My comments should not be considered medical advice.
