Do people with lupus have the lupus anticoagulant?

Not necessarily: Although many people with lupus have lupus anticoagulant not all do. And most people with lupus anticoagulant do not have lupus. Patients with lupus are more likely to develop the lupus anticoagulant than the general population so it is one "marker" for the disease.

Not exactly: Celebrex (celecoxib) is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (nsaid). The nsaids are felt to have some "blood thinning" properties, and they can increase the risk of bleeding particularly when taken in combination with true blood thinners such as warfarin.

Botox and thinners: While the risk of bleeding and bruising is higher with anticoagulants, especially if more than one is used, i feel comfortable using Botox in most facial regions. Make sure to disclose all the medications you are using, including supplements, vitamins, or even special diets you are on. These can all affect overall bleeding.
