HOW TO FIND THE RIGHT PRACTITIONER FOR YOU “It’s important to do a lot of research before booking in for your first botox appointment,” says Dr Sturnham. “Speak to friends and family who have already had the treatment and whose results you want to emulate yourself.” Got a good lead? Check them out on Instagram. “They might have before and after photographs on there, which can often be a helpful indicator of the quality of their work.”
THE PERFECT BRIDAL BOTOX TIMELINE “The earlier you start your botox appointments the better,” says Dr Sturnham. “The idea is to do the first pre-wedding botox treatment many months before the big day, to ensure the bride likes the results. I always recommend ‘baby botox’ as the first treatment, which involves using a small dose strategically to produce soft, natural-looking results.”
THE AFTERCARE Your practitioner will advise you of all the dos and don’ts to abide by in the hours immediately after your botox appointment. These will likely include avoiding strenuous exercise, sunbathing and saunas for 48 hours, massaging or rubbing your face for 72 hours, and some may advise sleeping on your back the first night after your treatment.
