Winter is the perfect time for toasty hot chocolates and holiday cheer – and it’s also an excellent time to schedule your Botox or Dysport treatment! Of course, these injectables can be done year-round, but there are some distinct advantages to booking your appointment during the colder months.
This blog will explore the benefits of getting Botox and Dysport in the winter to help you look and feel your best through the holiday season and beyond. If you’ve been wondering about scheduling your Botox before or after summer, don’t wait ‘til next spring – it’s the perfect time to schedule a Botox appointment as we move into the cooler months!
Why should you get Botox in the winter?
Less Sun Exposure
One of the primary advantages of getting Botox or Dysport treatments in the winter is reduced sun exposure. The sun’s UV rays can accelerate the breakdown of collagen and elastin, the proteins responsible for maintaining skin elasticity and a youthful appearance. By choosing the winter months for your treatments, you can minimize the risk of sun damage post-injection, allowing your skin to heal and rejuvenate without the additional stress of UV radiation.
Dry Skin Accentuates Wrinkles; Botox Banishes ‘Em
The winter months are notorious for drying out skin due to lower amounts of moisture in the air. This reduced humidity directly affects our skin, causing it to feel and look drier, which can highlight those pesky fine lines and wrinkles more. With Botox (plus hydrating skincare, see below!), we can eliminate those lines and wrinkles so that the winter weather doesn’t exacerbate them.
Your Makeup Will Look Flawless in Holiday Photos
The holidays are all about capturing precious moments with loved ones, and that often means taking countless photos. Whether it’s family gatherings, holiday parties, or winter weddings, you want to look your best in these pictures that will be cherished for years to come. Botox is your secret weapon – it helps smooth those fine lines that cause your makeup to crease, which means you’ll avoid that “cake-face” look in photos. Schedule your ‘tox appointment two to four weeks prior to your festivities for the perfect line-free look.
Does cold weather affect Botox?
No, the cold weather will not affect your Botox results. The average human body temperature stays between about 97.9 to 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit, meaning that even in the chilly winter months, your Botox will still work efficiently and safely.
Best Skincare to Pair with Botox and Dysport in the Winter
After you receive Botox or Dysport in the winter, you’ll want to keep up with your skincare to maintain your results. Here are a few of our winter skincare favorites to pair with your ‘tox treatment:
When it comes to winter skincare after your ‘tox treatment, hydration is everything! Prioritizing your skin’s hydration will help alleviate symptoms of dry or flaky skin and keep you feeling fresh all winter long.
We love ALASTIN’s Restorative Skin Complex for maximum moisture-retention. This hydrating skin elixir contains ALASTIN’s unique TriHex Technology®, a proprietary blend of peptides and active ingredients that supports the production of new collagen and elastin, plus silver mushroom, which deeply hydrates, and niacinamide, an antioxidant that helps minimize pigmentation and calm inflammation.
Revox Line Relaxer is the perfect post-Botox product to keep the area around your eyes softened and moisturized. Revision’s LineRelax™ Technology, with peptides and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), acts as a natural muscle relaxant to support the effects of your ‘tox. Plus, hyaluronic acid boosts hydration, and prebiotic inulin helps balance the skin’s microbiome in this tender area.
Even in the winter, wearing sunscreen daily, under your makeup or alone, is vital. We love ISDIN’s Eryfotona Actinica sunscreen because it has an SPF of 50 and is armed with antioxidants and DNA Repairsomes® to help repair existing photodamage while protecting against future harm.
Final Thoughts on Botox and Dysport in the Winter
