Injections Before the Holidays: When to Get Botox & Filler

By: Austin-Weston


It’s that time of year again! The next few months will roll by in a blur of functions with family, co-workers and friends. We all have holiday, sporting and social events filling our calendars and of course, we want to look our best when we see our friends and family. Would you like to feel confident and beautiful when you face the masses and have your photo taken countless times? Botox and fillers are a simple, nonsurgical method for minimizing the look of fine lines and wrinkles giving you a refreshed, younger look.

What is the ideal timing for Botox or fillers before your special event?

Botox results can take anywhere from a few days to a week. Touchups can be done in about two weeks following the initial application. By two one week, all bruising should be gone and you’ll be looking your best. ( We have some really special Arnica if you know you bruise easily!)

You will see filler results immediately. However, you will be a little swollen and asymmetry is possible for several days up to a week.

Two weeks before your special event is generally an adequate amount of time for anyone who is using Botox or fillers for the first time. If you have used Botox or fillers in the past and know how your individual results, a few days may be plenty of time.

If your plans include travel, no need to worry. Travel can be done immediately following Botox or fillers without hesitation.
