What Should I Think About When It Comes to BOTOX for the New Year?

BOTOX cosmetic is a great way to soften certain fine lines and wrinkles on your face – specifically, those wrinkles caused by facial expressions and muscular contractions. With New Year rejuvenation goals in mind, now is a great time to schedule a BOTOX appointment. Perhaps you are wondering when to schedule based on certain New Year events, Zoom get-togethers or other plans for being seen by friends, family or colleagues.

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Schedule the treatment with peak results in mind. If you are hoping to have beautiful BOTOX results for a New Year Zoom call with friends or another special event, schedule the injection appointment so that you will see the peak of the results during that time. You will likely notice an immediate effect, but generally the first effective results are seen a few days after the injections. The results look really good 10-14 days after the injections.
  • Plan for the possibility of redness and swelling for several hours. Although you can get right back to your day after BOTOX injections, it is perfectly normal to experience bruising, redness and swelling for several hours. For that reason, you may not want to get the injections immediately before a holiday get-together or other social event.
  • Know that results fade at 3-4 months after treatment. If you were planning to get BOTOX and enjoy the results for an event that is 5 months out or more, know that you will actually have to schedule another injection appointment before that event. BOTOX lasts 3-4 months before results fade.
