Summer is fast approaching which can only mean one thing – it’s wedding season. Many couples get engaged each year, and summer is always a popular time to tie the knot. This is probably because, despite the fact that the weather in the UK is not the most predictable, you are more likely to have a warmer and sunnier day in the summer months than you are in autumn/winter. This popularity of the summer season for weddings, also means that we see a rise in the number of people having botox as well as everyone wants to look their best for the big day. Some people spend hundreds and thousands on beauty products and non-invasive surgery in the run-up to the big day in an attempt to look as flawless as possible.
There is a lot of pressure to look perfect at your wedding because the pictures will stay with you forever, and so it is important that you like how you look and feel confident in your skin. Botox is just one way for you to feel good on your day.
One question we get asked a lot is how long before the wedding should I get my first set of botox injections and we would usually recommend at least a month. This is because although Botox is a safe treatment it is always best to do a bit of a practice run – especially if you have never had it before. It can take between 7 and 14 days for the results of your first Botox injection to show up which is why we recommend a month before. We also recommend that you avoid extreme changes in temperature and alcohol for the first 48 hours after the procedure – so you need to take this into account when you are booking your injections and your hen or stag do.
The injections you have with Botox are normally pretty painless but you may experience mild pain or some tingling during the process. There may also be some slight swelling afterward, but this should reduce within 30 minutes. Very occasionally some people experience mild bruising the day after, and although this is very uncommon it is one of the reasons we suggest you have the first injection a month in advance of your wedding day.
Botox works well on areas of the face where there is muscle – so your forehead, frown lines and eye wrinkles. On your wedding day, you may experience a wide range of deep emotions which will show on your face. If you have deep lines on your forehead or crow’s feet in the corners of your eyes, then Botox will help to get rid of these before your special day.
