‘Tis the Season for a Refresh: When to Get Injectables and Fillers in Time for the Holidays
The holiday season is a time for joy, festivities, and spending quality moments with loved ones. It’s also a time when we want to look our best and feel confident as we attend parties, reunions, and countless social gatherings. To achieve that youthful and refreshed appearance, many individuals turn to injectables and fillers. But when should you schedule these treatments to ensure your camera ready this holiday season? In this blog, we’ll explore the ideal timing for getting injectables and fillers to make sure you shine during the most wonderful time of the year.
Plan Ahead for Optimal Results
The first step in getting injectables and fillers for the holidays is to plan ahead. These treatments can provide a more youthful and revitalized appearance, but they may require some time for the results to fully manifest. Ideally, schedule your appointment at least 2-4 weeks before the holiday events.
Neurotoxins: 1-2 Weeks Before
Botox, Xeomin and the new longer-lasting DAXXIFY are all popular treatments for reducing wrinkles and lines, particularly in the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. It typically takes about a week or two for these to take full effect. Schedule your treatment at least two weeks before your holiday events to ensure that any minor swelling or bruising subsides.
Dermal Fillers: 2-4 Weeks Before
Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, are excellent for adding volume to areas like the cheeks, lips. These treatments typically show results within a few days but may come with temporary swelling or bruising. To allow time for these side effects to diminish and ensure optimal results, schedule your dermal filler appointment 2-4 weeks before the holidays.
Be Mindful of Your Recovery
After receiving injectables or fillers, it’s essential to follow the post-treatment care instructions provided by your provider. Avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun exposure, and certain medications that can increase the risk of bruising or swelling. Staying hydrated and following a healthy lifestyle can also contribute to a quicker recovery and better results.
Consult with a Professional
Before scheduling any injectable or filler treatment, it’s essential to have a consultation with a licensed and experienced medical professional. They will assess your individual needs, discuss your goals, and create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific requirements.
