Some beauty treatments require scheduling the procedure during a certain time of the year. For instance, chemical peels aren’t very suited for hot weather. However, some treatments like Botox® are perfect for any time of year.
While Botox can be done during any season, many spas and other facilities that offer Botox see a summer influx of Botox patients due the many benefits of having the injections done at this time of year.
Because Everything’s on Display
Summertime means spending more time outdoors in the sunlight—sunlight that can illuminate every single line and crease in your face! Because patients want to be ready to face the sun, literally, Botox is a popular summer favorite.
Counteracting the Effects of Squinting
Sunny days make us squint, even with sunglass protection. Getting Botox in the summer can help prevent new wrinkles from forming due to all that squinting. Using Botox before these lines even appear is a great way to stop your muscles from creating new wrinkles.
You Don’t Have to Hide from the Sun After Botox
As mentioned above, some treatments require you to stay out of the sun for up to seven weeks after the procedure. But with Botox, you can have your treatment and get back into the sun within just a few days. That being said, always wear sunscreen every day of the year.
Prevent Excessive Sweating
There’s no time that makes us sweat more than the summer. Botox is used to treat hypochondriasis, otherwise known as excessive sweating. Botox injections in the armpits, palms, and the soles of the feet can be used to stop excessive perspiration.
Quick Results and No Downtime
Botox is also great for summer because it’s fast and requires very little downtime and aftercare, which makes it fit perfectly into your busy summer schedule. Botox treatments won’t slow you down. You can have your morning jog, get your Botox, go to lunch, meet a friend, and go to a dinner party afterward. Just remember to avoid exercise and alcohol for 24 hours. Otherwise, you’re all set!
The Days of Summer Youth
Summertime awakens a lot of nostalgic emotions of summers gone by. So, what better time to feel your best than summertime? Botox can give you a boost of confidence just in time for vacation, since Botox helps to relax and soften wrinkles.
All in all, it doesn’t really matter when you get Botox, but for many people, the best time to do it is when their wrinkles are the most annoying or apparent—and that very often happens to be the summertime.
