Preparing for an Event? Here’s How You Should Time Fillers and Injectable Treatments

By April 30, 2021May 2nd, 2023Skin Care

Whether you need to look your best for a wedding, photoshoot, or any other occasion where all eyes are on you, get to know the recommended timelines for scheduling injectables or filler treatments so that you can show off fresh results.


Help smooth wrinkles, fine lines, and other visible signs of aging with Botox treatments, which temporarily relax facial muscles by blocking the nerve signals that cause them to contract. Since Botox doesn’t last forever, you may wonder when you should schedule your consultation and treatment if you’re planning to take advantage of this minimally invasive procedure before a major event. In anticipation of any redness or other skin discoloration, you should allow two weeks between your treatment and the big day.

Patients often notice improvement in as little as 24 hours, with the full benefits becoming visible after two weeks. Botox injections can last for months, and our team of board-certified dermatologists recommends repeating the treatment every three to four months to maintain the results.


If you’re the type of person that knows their skincare ingredients, you’re likely familiar with the many benefits of hyaluronic acid. Júvederm is a hyaluronic acid filler that treats aging skin through a non-surgical procedure. If you want to show up to your event with a fresh face, plan to schedule the treatment with your dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon two to three weeks prior.


Another example of hyaluronic acid fillers, Restylane injections are suitable for addressing large, hollow areas of the face like the cheeks, temples, or under-eye areas. The first few days after the treatment, patients should expect swelling, redness, and tenderness at the injection site. These side effects should subside within a week for facial injections and after 18 days for lip injections.
