Every bride wants her wedding day to be perfect. Unfortunately, our skin doesn’t always cooperate the way we want it to. Fine lines, wrinkles, and saggy skin can put a damper on our appearance.
While aging skin is inevitable, there are several options designed to smooth and rejuvenate your face for a more youthful complexion. Botox is one of the most popular treatments for reducing wrinkles on the face.
Botox Before Weddings
Today more and more brides are choosing to undergo non-invasive treatments before their weddings to ensure that they look their very best before walking down the aisle. One survey found Botox to be one of the top cosmetic treatment brides seek before their wedding with 14.8 percent of participants interested in the procedure.
Botox, in addition to other noninvasive treatments like fillers, lasers, and peels, have the ability to transform the skin and bring out a woman’s natural beauty.
Not Just for Women
Women are not the only ones interested in looking young and attractive at their weddings. Grooms are also undergoing cosmetic procedures to look their best. Whether it’s an eye lift, jaw reduction, or the removal of forehead lines, Botox has the ability to smooth out skin to create youthful, streamlined features. When a couple both receive Botox before their wedding, each partner can feel good about the way they look on their wedding day.
How Botox Injections Works
If you’re in search of a nonsurgical facelift before your wedding, try Botox. These injectables contain a toxin produced by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. When injected into muscles, Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. This prevents the muscle from being able to contract, which makes wrinkles in that area soften and relax. Botox can be used on everything from crow’s feet to forehead lines.
How Long Does It Last?
If you’re new to Botox and unsure if you’ll like the results, know that it’s only temporary. Botox generally takes 7 to 14 days until you see the full effects of the procedure. After the treatment, results will generally last between three and six months. You will notice that fine lines and wrinkles will gradually return as the Botox wears off. When this happens, you will need to undergo another treatment to maintain results.
Are There Any Side Effects?
After Botox, you may experience some mild, temporary side effects. The most common Botox side effects include bruising, muscle weakness near the injection sight, bleeding, redness, and muscle stiffness.
More serious, yet rare, side effects include headaches and eyelid drooping. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have been diagnosed with a neurological condition, you should not use Botox. In some instances Botox will not work for all wrinkles.
Is Botox Expensive?
Surprisingly, Botox is very affordable and is relatively inexpensive compared to other aesthetic procedures. At Cutis Laser Clinics in Singapore, we generally price Botox by unit as every patient may require a different amount of Botox.
When Should You Schedule Your Botox Treatment?
For brides or grooms who never had Botox before, try scheduling your treatment at least five to six months before your wedding so in case you are not satisfied with the look it will worn off before your big day. If you like the results, then you can schedule a top up with your doctor at least four weeks before your wedding day.
If you had Botox before, your top up will depend on when you had your treatment. If it’s already four to six months or longer since your last Botox treatment, then you need a top up. But if you did your treatment around two to three months before your wedding day, then you don’t need to top up for Botox.
