Your wedding day is soon approaching and of course you want everything to be perfect on your Big Day! There are so many things to consider on your Wedding Day and Botox is just one of them! Many patients ask us “What is the best time to get Botox?” The idea is that you want to look amazing not just for your wedding day but for your photographs and videos which will last a lifetime! Botox (also known as Botulinum Toxin) is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the USA currently and it is no wonder that it is now an essential part of the pre-wedding day plan.
Planning ahead of your Wedding Day
“Botox virgins” or first time Botox patients, should aim to have initial injections done several months before your “Big Day”. Just as you would try out new makeup and hair styles as part of your overall wedding planning, in order to make sure that you like the “look” of Botox. You want those wedding photos to capture you at your best! That is why it is so important to plan ahead of your wedding. If you like your Botox injections then you should plan on having your cosmetic injections done at least 3 weeks before your actual wedding day. Planning ahead of your wedding makes the potential side effects of bruising and give yourself enough time if your Botox needs any touch ups.
There are several areas of the face that brides like to have injected for their wedding. Frown lines, Crow’s feet, and forehead lines are some of the most popular areas that are injected with Botox. Botox for a “lip flip” has been increasingly gaining in popularity when patients want a subtle lift to their lips but aren’t ready for injectable fillers like Juvederm yet. Both dermatologists and plastic surgeons inject Botox. However, it is always important to consult a board certified physician who is a specialist in cosmetic injections since there is an art to injections that goes beyond science.
