As joyous as weddings are, they’re nonetheless stressful affairs. From arranging the whole event to scheduling every occasion associated with getting married, it can be challenging to prepare for a wedding day adequately. Fortunately, thanks to Botox® injections, one concern you can undoubtedly lay to rest is how you will look on your wedding day.
With the safe and trusted cosmetic procedure, brides (and grooms!) the world over are looking better, younger, and healthier than ever on their big day.
Here, Dr. Scott Farber offers his expert opinion and advice on getting Botox® injections before your wedding day – from timing to maintaining your results, he’s got you covered.
The Benefits of Botox®
Botox® has long been the best-known and most in-demand cosmetic procedures in the U.S. Currently, aesthetic professionals perform over 7.5 million Botox® procedures annually in the United States, with that number constantly on the rise.
Botox® is one of the best solutions to the most common signs of aging. Botox® is especially effective at reducing or eliminating the appearance of:
- Forehead lines and furrows
- Crow’s feet (lines that radiate from the eyes)
- Glabellar lines (the “11” lines between the eyes above the bridge of the nose)
Botox® works by paralyzing small groups of muscles around the injection site. It effectively removes wrinkles caused by musculature contraction for the duration of the neuromodulator’s effect, approximately three to four months.
Botox® for Brides and Grooms
The real beauty of Botox® injections for brides and grooms is the precise results the procedure offers, with little to no downtime afterward.
With looming wedding dates, portraits, bachelor and bachelorette parties, and even wanting to look their best on their honeymoons, brides and grooms-to-be don’t have the time to spend recovering from more invasive procedures such as facelifts. Other cosmetic procedures, however, such as Juvéderm, Radiesse, and Kybella, are perfect complementary procedures to Botox®.
Botox® sessions at Farber Plastic Surgery generally take no longer than 20 minutes, and patients can resume their day immediately following their visit to Dr. Farber’s Boca Raton clinic.
We highly recommend patients who want to use Botox® to look their best on their wedding day schedule their procedure at least two to three months before the special date. Why? The results of Botox® take somewhere between ten to 14 days to fully reveal themselves and set, and after three to four months, most patients begin to see the Botox® wear off. As such, two to three months is an ideal time for patients to adjust to their revitalized appearance, and ensure they’re ready to take their vows.
Prolonging your results depends on leading a healthy, active lifestyle with a balanced diet and steering clear of smoking. Do this, and you’ll get the most bang for your Botox® buck.
