How to Align Your Botox Appointments With Upcoming Events

Planning is everything, especially when it comes to maintaining your youthful glow for special occasions. Whether it’s a wedding, a vacation, or the festive season, looking your best is non-negotiable. But when should you schedule your Botox injection to ensure you’re radiating confidence at these events?

Here’s a guide to answer your pressing questions and ensure you’re always picture-perfect for any calendar date.

Neurotoxins & Their Peak Effectiveness Explained

Neurotoxins like Xeomin and Jeuveau work wonders by smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines, but timing is key. Neurotoxins require time to take effect as they need to penetrate the muscle cells to inhibit the nerve’s neurotransmitters, ultimately leading to muscle paralysis. 

Neurotoxins peak between 2-6 weeks, making this window perfect for planning your treatments. 

Want to make a stunning impression? Schedule your tox appointment 2-3 weeks in advance of any significant event.

Special Considerations for Botox & Other Treatments

Laser treatments

The recommended waiting period between receiving laser treatments and injectable treatments like Botox can vary, often ranging from a few days for non-ablative lasers to 2 to 4 weeks for ablative lasers


If you plan on Skinpen, Aquagold, or Radio Frequency microneedling, wait at least one week before getting Botox. Conversely, ensure a gap of at least one week after Botox before proceeding with microneedling.

Dermal fillers

We recommend allowing at least two weeks between administering neurotoxins (Botox, Xeomin or Jeuveauand) and any dermal filler treatments. This gap ensures that the effects of neurotoxins have fully developed, allowing for a more precise application of fillers to enhance the overall aesthetic outcome. 

Adjusting treatment timing may be necessary based on your unique needs and the specific areas being treated.

It’s essential to consult with us for advice tailored to your specific situation and the types of treatments received, as healing times can differ based on the individual and the intensity of the laser treatment.
