Everything You Need To Know About Botox Before Your Wedding Day!
August 15, 2017
Curiosity about Botox has been on a high since the process got popular among models and celebrities alike. With a turn of events, the brides too are now considering getting a Botox treatment before their wedding to look perfect on the big day. Let’s look at some of the things that a Botox-virgin bride needs to know before going through the process:
Arrive Six Months Early
Botox treatment takes only two minutes; however, it takes 2 weeks to give the final result. So if you are looking for a pre-wedding treatment, see your dermatologist six months before the wedding. If you can’t come 6 months before, 6 weeks’ time would help as well which leaves 2 weeks for final treatment, and 2 weeks for a follow-up visit.
Botox is Safe When Done Correctly
Needles going in your forehead, eyebrows, between your eyes and wherever you plan to get your Botox; this may sound daunting but Botox is completely safe and FDA approved. The treatment was first approved in 1989 for medical purposes, but later got approved for cosmetic purposes in 2002. So, find an expert and go for it!
Do Not Go Overboard
More is not okay! Don’t ask your dermatologist to completely freeze your face. If you can’t raise eyebrows when you get a surprise dance performance on your wedding, you definitely have been over-treated.
How Long Does It Last?
Botox takes at least 2 weeks to settle and show the result which is why the experts suggest the brides to come in at least 6 weeks before the wedding. The effect lasts for 3-4 months after which you can go for another round if you want.
Should I Avoid Anything Afterwards?
With the correct procedure, you don’t need to worry about freezing yourself. The experts suggest waiting for just 40 minutes before performing any activity so there is no bruising.
No Age Restriction
There is absolutely no age restriction or limit for Botox. Young brides are going for it even before their wrinkles appear. It depends on your preference and goals and how long you want to continue with it.
You Won’t Look Frozen
There is a concept about Botox that says that it makes you look frozen and you lose your personality. This is true to the extent that your facial movement will be restricted but you will still be able to express in a lively way. Botox relaxes the wrinkles that form from your expressions, like the forehead lines when you frown, not every wrinkle that appears on your face.
Go For a Follow-up!
You have to see your dermatologist after the treatment! It takes some people more visits till they can get a good result. This is not a one size fits all treatment, so take out time from your busy schedule and plan carefully before getting the treatment.
Botox can give you a natural, refreshed look if done in the correct way. It is your big day and you don’t want to ruin it with a treatment you’re going through for the first time! Good luck beautifying yourself, ladies!
