The best advice we can give: be patient while the products are working. Hang in there and stay in communication with us - the payoff will be worth it. 

Now – there is a lot of pressure to impress at your wedding, and more and more men and women are turning to Botox to look their best. There are some very important tips to remember prior to going under the needle.

We recommend having Botox injections at least one month before your big day. If you bruise easy, allow six weeks to make sure everything has settled and your muscles have time to respond to the treatment. However, it can take about 7-14 days to see the full effects after the initial treatment which is why we advise you to have it done at least a month before.

Also, you should avoid alcohol, facial massages and extreme changes in temperature such as steam rooms and sauna’s for 24 to 48 hours after the procedure.

Botox injections are relatively painless but you might find that you experience slight tenderness and mild pain during the injection. There may be some minor swelling immediately after the injection; however this normally settles after about 30 minutes.

You may also get some slight bruising the next day, which is relatively uncommon, and is why we recommend you to get it done in advance.

Generally, Botox works well for the frown, forehead and eye wrinkles. During the big day, you will find yourself overwhelmed with emotions and this may be evident in your facial expressions.

If you have any unwanted horizontal lines across your forehead, or frown lines in the area between your eyebrows, or crow’s feet in the outer corner of the eyes and you want to get rid of them for your wedding, you can with the help of Botox.

Another treatment which is becoming popular to have before a wedding or other significant occasion is hyperhidrosis treatment, also known as excessive sweating treatment.

Some people are prone to excessive sweating in response to hot temperatures, stress or emotion which is more likely to be a problem on an important occasion such as your wedding.

Botox can be injected into areas prone to excessive sweating such as the underarm or the forehead and can reduce sweating by up to 90 to 100 per cent.

The treatment involves small injections of Botox, and takes about 15 minutes to complete. The treatment takes effect in about 5 to 7 days and the sweating can be stopped or significantly reduced for about 4 to 6 months.

So if you are engaged to marry and you are considering Botox, make sure you get it done at least one month before to ensure your muscles have time to respond, and the treatment to take full effect. You want to be able to true show your true emotions on your big day and not worry about anything else!
