From working out to scheduling cosmetic procedures, many people prepare year-round so that they look their best for summer and beach season. However, not all cosmetic efforts take a long time to show results. Botox is a procedure that delivers results within a short time frame, and summer is the ideal time to receive Botox treatments.
1. Botox Reduces Summer Squint Lines
Intense sunlight is a defining feature of summer, but the bright light causes people to squint, which contributes to the onset and severity of crow’s feet. These pronounced wrinkles can make a person’s face appear older and more weathered. By relaxing the muscles that cause facial lines and creases, Botox is able to remove crow’s feet and prevent the creation of new wrinkles. Treatments can smooth away forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines for up to three months.
2. Botox Allows for Time in the Sun
People want to enjoy the sun in summertime, so it is essential to choose a cosmetic procedure that is compatible with life in the sunshine. Some anti-aging treatments, such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion, require the patient to avoid sunlight for weeks after treatment. These restrictions can put a damper on carefully planned summer outings. While it is wise to avoid inordinate sun and heat exposure for a few days after a Botox procedure, Botox allows people to quickly get back outside and have fun in the sun.
3. Botox is Minimally Invasive
The team at Crowley Medical Cosmetics has found that Botox procedures are well tolerated by patients. Blunt end cannula and very fine needles are used to reduce soreness, and topical numbing creams are also applied to enhance comfort.
4. Botox Requires No Downtime
Summer is a season filled with vacation plans, family time, and relaxation. Botox treatments are a quick procedure that is easy for people to fit into their busy schedules, and results are noticeable within three to five days after treatment. It is recommended that people avoid consuming large quantities of alcohol and avoid heavy exercise directly following a Botox treatment. Otherwise, people can continue with their normal routine.
5. Botox Provides Long-Lasting Youthful Looks
A Botox treatment can last for three to six months, so a treatment at the beginning of summer will keep people looking vibrant and youthful throughout the season. People can have confidence in their appearance and enjoy the summer months to the fullest.
