Summer has finally arrived – and that means it’s time to enjoy some time off at your favorite vacation destination! Whether you prefer to spend time on the beach or take in the sights of the big city, you want to look your absolute best…
That’s why you want to know how long before your vacation should you get Botox!
Don’t worry, we can help you time your Botox injections so you look absolutely stunning no matter where your travels may take you. At Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa in Pewaukee, Wisconsin, we recommend the following Botox prep for your vacation:
- While Botox results may feel like they should be immediate, the truth is that results probably won’t be fully visible for at least two weeks after your injection. If you want to enjoy your Botox results while you’re on vacation, try to plan it at least 2 to 4 weeks out from when you depart for your destination. That way, you’ll be able to enjoy your refreshed and rejuvenated appearance – plus, you’ll look great in all your vacay selfies!
- Keep in mind that you shouldn’t lay down within three to four hours of your Botox treatment. A lot of people tend to forget that Botox needs a little time to settle, so laying down can cause it to spread to areas outside of the injection site.
- A lot of clients often ask if they’re able to sunbathe after Botox injections. While we certainly don’t recommend sunbathing without proper SPF projection, you should be fine to enjoy a safe day at the beach or out in the city without disrupting your Botox results.
- Avoid activities that will make you flushed and hot immediately after your Botox injection. Don’t go to the gym or sauna, as the heat can cause the Botox solution to spread outside the injection site.
Bottom line: The best time to get Botox is about 2 to 4 weeks before your vacation. Make sure you pack plenty of sunscreen!
