Everything you need to know about getting Botox before your wedding
Are you considering anti-wrinkle treatments (commonly known as Botox) before your wedding? Botox is a fantastic treatment that can have you looking your best in time for your nuptials, but it’s not as straightforward as getting your nails done or having your pre-wedding tan.
Whilst anti-wrinkle injections are safe in the right hands and are quickly becoming more mainstream, there are several things to keep in mind in order to get the right treatment in time for your big day.
Here I answer the most commonly asked questions from brides-to-be:
How soon before my wedding should I get Botox?
Just like a hair and makeup trial, I recommend a ‘practice run’ with the treatments you are considering so you know exactly what to expect before the day, and so your practitioner can replicate the treatment in time for your wedding.
I recommend booking your first anti-wrinkle or Botox trial 6-7 months before your wedding, with a view for a top up 3 months later and then again in time for the wedding. You should look to have your final anti-wrinkle injections 2-4 weeks before your wedding day. Dermal fillers should be done 9 to 12 months in advance, with a top-up no later than 6 weeks before the big day. This will give plenty of time for things to settle.
How much will it cost?
Anti-wrinkle injections can be expensive treatments, but for good cause. Products from reputable sources are not cheap. If a deal looks too good to be true, it usually is. Invest wisely in your face – cheap is not always cheerful! Check out my Botox prices in Doncaster.
How do I know where to go?
A recommendation from a trusted friend or family member is always a good place to start. Alternatively, look for a practitioner with a solid online following, showing good examples of work and positive feedback.
Different practitioners have different styles. I like to keep my treatments looking as natural as possible for each client and I use advanced techniques, products and lengthy time frames to achieve this. My website and social media accounts always reflect this so people know exactly what to expect.
What qualifications should the practitioner have?
I believe you should always seek a professionally-trained dental or medical practitioner to carry out treatments. Botox is a medical procedure that should be facilitated by medically-trained people with detailed knowledge of the anatomy of the head and neck. Always ask about their clinical background.
Dental and medically-trained professionals are held accountable through registration with a medical council such as the GDC, GMC and NMC, so I advise to always check that they are registered with one of these.
