Botox Folloqing Naproxen

 
Hi and thank you for your question! Given the impact of Naproxen on your coagulation, the risk of bruising will be higher. However, Botox injection is quite superficial and it’s done with very fine needles, so the impact should be minimal. It will be up to you if you are ok with a potential of more bruising for a few days. I hope it helps and good luck!
