Although Botox treatments can and do happen all year round, there are good arguments for scheduling a session in the spring. In this post, we’ll go over some very good reasons why spring is the season for Botox.
Lack Of Pre-Treatment Tanning
It’s important to know that you should avoid tanning or excessive exposure to the sun if you’re planning to have a Botox treatment. Sun exposure can cause blood vessels to dilate which may cause a faster diffusion of the Botox injections. Untanned skin also allows irregularities to be easily identified and properly treated. After a long winter of short days and less than average sunshine, your skin will be naturally primed for an effective Botox procedure.
Reduced Post-Treatment Sun Exposure
It’s also advised to reduce your exposure to the sun after a Botox treatment. Of course, this is going to be more easily done during a season known for its rain showers as opposed to the middle of the summer. You should try to avoid direct sunshine or tanning beds for at least two days after a Botox treatment. A springtime session will reduce the chances that you’ll be tempted to enjoy the summer sunshine too soon after a treatment.
More Social Activity
If you live somewhere that experiences harsh winters, you’ll have a very good understanding of how the community comes alive once spring arrives. The first spring day in most northern climes brings people out in droves. And of course, you’ll want to look your best when you’re out enjoying the reemergence of humanity. A spring session of Botox will ensure that your skin is as fresh and taut as the first days of spring are refreshing.
A Mother’s Day Gift
In North America, Mother’s Day occurs on the second Sunday in May. If you know of a mother who regularly gets Botox treatments, gifting a session for Mother’s Day might make the ideal gift. Of course, it’s important to be careful when gifting something like a Botox treatment – especially for someone who’s never undergone the procedure before. But if you’re confident that a gifted Botox treatment would be welcome, Mother’s Day can be the ideal occasion.
