BOTOX for Events: 5 Things To Consider

Have a big event coming up that you want to look your best for? BOTOX can help you look like your most youthful self. Whether you are planning your wedding, are speaking a business event, are planning a trip, or some other exciting upcoming event, BOTOX can help you radiate confidence and youth. However, there are several things you need to consider with timing your BOTOX treatment just right. Here are five things you should consider for treatment.

1. Plan Ahead of Time

If you have a big event coming up, you want to plan your BOTOX treatment for at least one month before the event. If you schedule your injections too close to the date, you might notice more swelling, redness, or other unwanted side effects.

2. BOTOX Has Some Side Effects

Most people can expect some minor side effects in the first days following their injection, and you pay close attention to aftercare instructions. Typically, you need to rest to avoid increased blood flow – which can cause the product to migrate and cause unwanted cosmetic effects.

3. BOTOX Doesn’t Treat All Wrinkles

BOTOX only targets specific types of wrinkles – those caused by facial expressions. This means if you have smile lines, crow’s feet, or other lines caused by muscle movement, BOTOX is a good solution. However, BOTOX doesn’t fix wrinkles caused by fat loss. Dermal fillers are your best bet for those! And you can combine both for the best results.

4. Not Everyone Should Get BOTOX

Check with your medical aesthetician or doctor before getting BOTOX. Pregnancy, MS, and some other conditions make you a poor candidate. The list of conditions might surprise you, so make sure to do your research and consult with a professional before scheduling your first session.

5. BOTOX Results Aren’t Permanent

If you got BOTOX in the past, this doesn’t mean you’ll be party ready. BOTOX results aren’t permanent and typically last up to four months. So if your event is more than 4 months from your last injection, you’ll want to schedule your next session with this in mind.
