BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are among the most common beauty procedures, with nearly 3 million treatments being provided per year. Many of these treatments are chosen in November, as people are preparing for the holidays and are trying to look their best for the camera. As a form of gratitude to their users, Allergan set up BOTOX® Cosmetic Day, which falls on November 15 this year.
But what exactly can BOTOX® Cosmetic help you with, and how can you enjoy the best of it on BOTOX® Day? Read our blog and find out how you can enjoy the best promotions, allowing you to look more youthful with each treatment.
What Is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified version of botulinum toxin. When in high, non-purified forms, the toxin can lead to a condition referred to as botulism. However, in small quantities and a purified form, it can stop the muscles from moving for a limited amount of time.
As it is injected into the target muscle, it will stop reacting to signals coming from your nerves. Their inability to move may cause the muscle and the skin above it to smooth out, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. The procedure works best for existing dynamic wrinkles or to prevent their early formation.
When Should You Get BOTOX® Cosmetic?
There is no hard rule as to when BOTOX® Cosmetic should be used, but most candidates are past their mid-20s or in their early 20s. If you notice wrinkles forming on your forehead, around your eyes, or between your eyebrows, then you can get BOTOX® Cosmetic. The treatment can also be a great choice for smile lines or gummy smiles.
The best time to get BOTOX® Cosmetic is two weeks before an event. This way, by the time the big day arrives, all of the side effects should be gone. This is one of the reasons why women and men get BOTOX® Cosmetic in November, as the holiday season is drawing close.
What to Do After BOTOX® Cosmetic?
After getting BOTOX® Cosmetic, you can experience a series of post-injection side effects like mild swelling, tenderness, or redness. These symptoms should fade within a few days, revealing the BOTOX® Cosmetic results. Refrain from touching your face or applying makeup for the next two to three days, as this may affect the results.
The effectiveness of BOTOX® Cosmetic can last for three to five months, depending on how often you get the treatment. Touch-ups can be done after three months, when BOTOX® Cosmetic may start losing its strength. You should not get the injections earlier than three months, as this might lead to a BOTOX® resistance.
