Many patients decide to have a Botox treatment in order to look their best just before a big event, however timing is key to getting that desired result.
If a patient would like to use Botox to diminish fine lines and wrinkles before an event, keep in mind that Botox results take between 7-10 days to fully appear. Having Botox on the day of your big event or only a few days before is not recommended, since the Botox will not have fully kicked in within that time.
Even if a patient doesn’t need their Botox to be fully set before an event, patients should still consider timing their Botox treatments.
Patients are not advised to drink alcohol or exercise 24-48 hours following a Botox treatment. If a patient is attending an event or class that will include drinking alcohol or exercise within that time frame they increase the likelihood of bruising and other side effects.
A third reason to give yourself sufficient time before your event is to allow your practitioner time to make any small adjustments needed.
If a patient is trying Botox for the first time or a patient has not had Botox in quite some time, a practitioner will want to start them off on a smaller dosage of Botox and slowly ease them into their treatments.
If you want to have a refreshed youthful appearance for a special event, Botox can be your best beauty secret, simply give yourself sufficient time to allow for adjustments and for any Botox injections to take full effect.
