Getting Botox for Your Big Day? Here’s What Brides and Grooms Need to Know.

Posted on April 3, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Your wedding is one of the biggest days of your life. You’ll find yourself looking at the pictures often as anniversaries go by and Facebook serves up photographic mementos reminding you of your special day. Because of this, many people consider enhancing the youthful appearance of their face with Botox. To make sure everything goes smoothly, please keep these pre-wedding Botox tips in mind:

1. Don’t try to schedule for the week of your wedding!
Botox only takes few minutes to administer, but it can take about two weeks to fully take effect. Treatment results last about four months. To ensure that you love how you look on your big day, consider getting a treatment about six months before your ceremony, then another one for the big day a month or so prior.

2. Make sure it’s not the week of a bachelorette party, either.
While Botox only rarely causes side effects, you can make them less likely through your own actions before and after the procedure. Abstain from alcohol for about a week after getting a Botox treatment in order to avoid complications like bruising or swelling.

3. Go to a qualified practitioner.
In the state of California, only a qualified medical professional is allowed to administer Botox. While the procedure is minimally invasive, it does require skill and knowledge to do it right. Qualified Botox providers will ensure the procedure is done safely and they will be able to help you in an unlikely event of a complication.

4. Don’t be afraid to go if you’re a guy!
