Why Summer Is A Great Time For BOTOX®

Why Summer Is A Great Time For BOTOX®

Ahhh… summertime. For many of us, summer is the best season; filled with longer, warmer days, beach getaways, weddings, family get-togethers, patio drinks. We often start our preparations for this favourite time of the year in late spring. We book our appointments for hair removal and pedicures, shop for our summer wardrobes and footwear, eat more greens, and add a few extra sit-ups and push-ups to our regular fitness routine. But have you ever considered adding BOTOX® to your summer prep list? There is a misconception that BOTOX® and sunshine just don’t mix, but this is completely untrue. Read on to find out why summer is a great time for BOTOX®.

Busting The Myth About Summer And BOTOX®

For some reason, many people are misinformed when it comes to BOTOX® and sun exposure. Perhaps it is because of the recommendation that you avoid sunlight immediately after a BOTOX® treatment. The truth is that this recommendation is solely to minimize the effects of UV rays after minor injections. Exposure to sunlight can prolong swelling and redness at the injection site, but this is only for a few hours or days after treatment. Sunlight and UV exposure will not cause harm or degrade the results of your BOTOX® treatment. The other truth is that everyone should be using high-SPF sunscreen anytime they are outdoors to avoid skin damage, BOTOX® treatment or not.

Why Summer BOTOX® Treatments Make Sense

BOTOX® is an extremely safe, effective, and affordable way to minimize fine lines and wrinkles and achieve a more youthful and rejuvenated complexion. Here are the benefits of a summer BOTOX® treatment:

BOTOX® Will Prevent Summer Wrinkles
We probably spend more time squinting in the summer than at any other time throughout the year. Not only does BOTOX® reduce existing lines and wrinkles, it prevents the muscles that we use to squint from contracting and leads to reduced formation of new, sunshine-induced lines.

There Is No Downtime
BOTOX® treatments can be booked for your lunch break, right before you leave for vacation, or the day before a wedding. No one will know you just had this transformative procedure. Keep in mind that it can take 1-2 weeks to achieve optimal results, so if you want to look your very best in your vacation photos, book accordingly.

BOTOX® Lets You Go Make-Up Free
Summertime imparts a natural glow. We often opt for easy, breezy hairstyles and a more natural complexion in the heat of the season. BOTOX® is a perfect pick-me-up treatment to result in smoother skin and a fresh, beautiful appearance, no makeup necessary. 

BOTOX® Lasts
BOTOX® will usually last for 4-6 months before another treatment is needed. This means that you can plan for injections in May or June and be confident that your lifted and youthful appearance will carry right through to the fall.
