Here Comes the BOTOX®: Wedding Day Cosmetic Procedure Timing

  • April 24, 2020

You’ve booked the venue and secured the caterer, music, flowers, and photographer. Everything is lining up perfectly for your wedding day – but have you thought about adding BOTOX® or Xeomin® to your pre-wedding checklist?

If you’ve never gotten treatment with neuromodulators before, you may be wondering about the timing. Should you do it as close to your wedding as possible to keep it “fresh,” or wait a few weeks to give it time to settle in? As Denver’s leading plastic surgeon, Dr. Jeffrey Schmidt often works with future brides and grooms-to-be on non-surgical solutions to treat fine lines before their wedding day. His advice may surprise you.

How to Look Picture-Perfect for Your Wedding

If you’re planning to get your forehead furrows, crow’s feet, and “eleven lines” smoothed out before walking down the aisle, it’s best to start at least four to six months ahead of time. Doing so will give Dr. Schmidt time to come up with a tailored treatment plan that will make you picture-perfect by your wedding day. You can come in for your initial injections, then have a touch-up a few weeks ahead of time to ensure you are picture-perfect when the big day rolls around.

Since it can take up to a week before you see the effects of BOTOX® and Xeomin®, you don’t want to wait until the last minute to have your injections. You also want to give yourself time to heal, in case you have any minor bruising or swelling after the procedure. With the right timing, neuromodulators can not only make you more confident in your smile but can also help you feel your best on what should be one of the happiest days of your life.

Turn Back the Clock

There’s a reason BOTOX® has consistently been one of the most sought-after cosmetic solutions around the world since receiving FDA approval for use in treating wrinkles. It’s a minimal-risk, high-reward procedure that can erase many of the most stubborn premature wrinkles that cause you to look older than you truly are.

BOTOX® and its cousin, Xeomin®, both derive from purified versions of the botulinum toxin. When injected in precise amounts into the muscles that cause wrinkles when you squint, smile, or frown, these products prevent these muscles from contracting. The relaxing effect can last up to three to six months, during which time you’ll experience the added benefit of keeping new wrinkles from forming.

In addition to improving the appearance of the wrinkles around the eyes and eyebrow area, BOTOX® can treat horizontal wrinkles on the nose, a dimpled chin, perioral wrinkles, and prominent neck banding.
