Is Getting Botox Safe During Summer?

As more and more people are heading out into the outdoors to enjoy the rest of summer, there is an increasing demand for procedures to help us all look our best. It’s for this reason that botox Toronto clinics are doing booming business post-pandemic. 

However, some of the most common questions that skin clinic doctors have to answer is regarding the safety of procedures like botox brow lifts. Many plastic surgery operations can be affected by the weather and level of sun exposure. This piece will explore how safe something like a Botox® brow lift is this summer.

What is Botox?

Botulinum toxin, or Botox®, is a popular brand of facial muscle relaxers and has become synonymous with its kind of non-surgical cosmetic treatments. How Botox® works is fairly simple. It is injected into the skin and causes a relaxing of the muscles and can help remove facial lines. 

This can help smooth out wrinkles and creases in the skin. Botox® is popular as a way to combat wrinkles without extensive surgery involved. You can check out any Botox® before and after pics to see just how well this works. 

How Safe is Botox?

Botox® is generally considered to be a “non-surgical” option, with only a few ultra-fine needles actually entering the skin. This makes it a much safer cosmetic procedure than those that require actual incisions. 

The benefit of being so “low impact” is that Botox® treatments can be incredibly convenient to get. They have nearly no downtime, so you can get a treatment done over your lunch break and be fine to go back to work. 

Where is Botox Injected?

Botox® injections can be used anywhere that you want to reduce wrinkles and get smoother skin. Generally, Botox injections are used on the face, where wrinkles  and frown lines are often at their most obvious – a good example of this would be the Botox® brow lift. Other popular areas to get Botox® injections include:

  • Forehead (lines)
  • Brow
  • Between Eyebrows
  • Around the Eyes
  • Around the Mouth
  • The Jawline
  • The Neck 

Is Summer Good for Botox?

People tend to be extra careful of their skin during summer – too much sun exposure can lead to skin damage. This makes some uncertain over whether to get any kind of skin changing procedure during the summer.

Thankfully, Botox® injections are very easy to get safely during the summer months. At most, you might want to stay out of the worst of the sun for the first 24 hours after your procedure. Partially this is to protect your skin, and partially because you don’t want to be squinting in the sun too much while the Botox® is still taking effect! In fact, Botox can even help with excessive sweating. It will cut down on your sweating in the injection site area, helping you feel fresh in the worst of the summer heat.
