When summertime rolls around, warmer weather and tropical vacation plans turn a lot of people’s attention to the idea of body contouring. We shouldn’t limit ourselves! Summer is actually an excellent time for Botox. The increase in social activity during this time of year means we all want to feel great about our appearance. Feeling confident in social situations doesn’t always mean that we fit into a certain pants-size, bikini, or bra size. In many instances, it means we look fresh, youthful, and full of life. Here, we want to point out a few reasons why summertime Botox is beneficial.
It’s Not Just About Frown Lines
Two of the most common elements of summer are water and sunshine. This combination is incredible in a lot of ways but also presents us with countless reasons to squint. Squinting, as you may know, is a significant contributor to crow’s feet and other lines around the eyes. Bright sunlight also makes some people squint in a way that forms frown lines. Why allow your summer fun to put a damper on your youthful appearance? Visit our office in Spring Lake, NJ for a quick Botox treatment to prevent excessive squinting.
Quick and Virtually Painless
Most people we meet are quite busy throughout the summer months, leisurely making their way from one summer gathering to another. Between road trips, faraway vacations, and backyard barbeques, the summer flies by in a flurry of socializing. Fitting in time for a major cosmetic makeover may be out of the question. Botox, on the other hand, takes less than an hour (less than 30 minutes in many cases!) and does not keep you down for any length of time. It is possible to get Botox on your lunch hour or way to a dinner party because side effects like redness and swelling diminish quickly.
Some cosmetic treatments are more appropriate for Fall and Winter, such as microdermabrasion and laser resurfacing. Botox, however, doesn’t react to UV exposure. This injectable solution absorbs into muscle tissue and attaches to neuroreceptors. While it is wise to wear sunscreen and a hat to prevent sun damage that degrades collagen, there is no need to hide from the sun to protect the results of Botox treatment.
