With the holidays drawing family gatherings closer, you may feel the need to give yourself an aesthetic boost. Many believe that the best moment to undergo any type of cosmetic procedure is during the holidays when you get more days off from work. However, considering the multitude of family gatherings you may have to attend, it’s much smarter to get the treatment before that.
BOTOX® Cosmetic can help prepare you for the numerous family photos that you will have to take. With their popularity increasing in the weeks leading up to Christmas, BOTOX® Cosmetic injections can be the perfect gift for yourself this season. In this blog, you will learn more about these injectables and why you should write them down on your holiday list.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable that is administered directly into your muscles to temporarily inactivate their movement. The solution is based on botulinum toxin in a purified form, which stops the muscles from contracting unnecessarily. This prevents creases from forming when you perform facial expressions, allowing you to maintain a more youthful look.
BOTOX® Cosmetic can be injected in different areas, depending on where you have dynamic wrinkles. It is most common for creases and lines such as crow’s feet, forehead lines, neck lines, smile lines, and wrinkles between your eyebrows. The treatment is often the perfect choice when you want natural results, without any obvious modifications to your profile.
There are several reasons why BOTOX® Cosmetic should be number one on your priority list when preparing for the holidays. Here are the main ones:
The main reason why BOTOX® Cosmetic should be a must-have before the holidays is that it offers facial rejuvenation. The treatment can reduce the intensity of fine lines and wrinkles on your face caused by repeated facial expressions. When the time comes for you to take those holiday card photos, your skin can look smoother and picture ready.
As with any injection, BOTOX® Cosmetic has the potential for minimal side effects. The most common is pain and sensitivity at the injection site, along with some redness and swelling. You should not touch or rub the treated area for at least one to two days after the injection. The side effects subside within a day or two, which is fast enough for you to greet the holidays.
While BOTOX® Cosmetic does not provide results immediately after stepping out of the office, the effects can still appear very fast. Depending on the areas that you are treating, it can take anywhere from five to eight days for you to see the outcome. Areas with smaller wrinkles like your crow’s feet or the areas between your eyebrows often show results faster, whereas deeper wrinkles may take up to one week.
The holiday season can get very busy. For this reason, you may not have the necessary time to spend hours in a doctor’s office. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections often take less than 15 minutes to be administered, making them a good lunchtime procedure. After that, you can continue your daily tasks as usual.
Last but not least, by getting BOTOX® Cosmetic injections before the holidays, you give yourself a confidence boost. As you may likely have multiple social interactions in the following month, this may prove highly beneficial for you. Whether you are showing up at an event or preparing to take a picture to send to family and friends, you’ll feel better about your look.
