The Benefits Of Getting BOTOX® and Dysport® In Winter

If you want to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, BOTOX® and Dysport® can give you the results you desire. BOTOX® is derived from Botulinum toxin that paralyzes the muscles by blocking the nerve signals to the muscle. In doing so, the skin over the affected muscles relaxes, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while preventing existing creases from becoming deeper. Although BOTOX® and Dysport® offer younger-looking skin at any time of the year, there are certain benefits to having your BOTOX® and Dysport® injections during the winter.

Why Get BOTOX® and Dysport® In The Winter

Longer Lifespan
BOTOX® and Dysport® actually last better in the cold than in the heat! BOTOX® and Dysport® tend to last anywhere from 3 months to 6 months, but this depends on a lot of factors, including where it is administered, how large the treatment area is, how well you care for the area of treatment, and the weather conditions when the BOTOX® and Dysport® is first injected. In general, BOTOX® and Dysport® treatment administered in the winter is much more likely to last longer than BOTOX® and Dysport® administered in the summer. It is suspected that a higher body heat leads to a slightly faster metabolism, which leads to a quicker nullification of the effects of the botulism toxin used to make BOTOX® and Dysport®.

Reduced Activity
After the holidays and during periods of intense cold, people are a lot less likely to get outside and be very active. Although it’s good to get your exercise, avoiding intensive or frequent exercise actually helps prolong the effects of BOTOX® and Dysport®. Increased physical activity can speed up how long it takes your muscles to recover from BOTOX® and Dysport®, which makes the effects of BOTOX® and Dysport® wear off quicker.

Reduces The Appearance Of Winter Wrinkles
Because winter in Alberta tends to be very dry, wrinkles and fine lines can be accentuated during this time. Squinting against the bright snowy landscape can also make crow’s feet appear more visible. By having BOTOX® and Dysport® injections in the winter, you can prevent these wrinkles and fine lines from being as visible while also helping to prevent the risk of these fine lines and wrinkles from deepening.

More Availability
Many people tend to think about getting BOTOX® and Dysport® treatments in the spring and summer, especially if they have events to attend such as weddings. Because of the popularity of BOTOX® and Dysport® treatments in the warmer months, this often leaves more availability for injection appointments in winter, making it easier for you to fit a BOTOX® and Dysport® treatment into your schedule.

Reduced Bruising
If bruising occurs, it typically goes away after about 3 days, but having your BOTOX® and Dysport® treatment in winter will help reduce this time. BOTOX® and Dysport® treatments in winter can help to prevent bruising from developing by constricting the blood vessels, making bruising (and swelling) less likely.
