As the holiday season approaches, many people across NYC are looking to refresh their appearance with cosmetic injectables. However, there is often a concern about whether these treatments will have enough time to work before the holidays. Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio and his team at Uptown Body Contouring in Manhattan want to help you make an informed decision about your cosmetic treatments for the holiday season.

Planning Cosmetic Injectable Timelines

It’s important to understand that the timeline for cosmetic injectables can vary depending on the individual and the treatment being performed. In general, most injectables take a few days to start working, with full results becoming visible after a few weeks. For example, Botox® typically takes 3-7 days to start working and reaches full effectiveness within two weeks. On the other hand, dermal fillers can provide immediate results, but the full effects may not be noticeable for a few weeks.

If you are planning to get cosmetic injectables before the holidays, Dr. Del Vecchio recommends that you schedule your appointment at least 2-4 weeks in advance. This will allow enough time for the treatment to take effect and any side effects, such as bruising or swelling, to subside. Additionally, it’s important to avoid any strenuous physical activity or alcohol consumption for at least 24 hours after the treatment to minimize the risk of complications.

Injectables Work Differently

It’s also worth noting that some injectables, such as Botox, may require touch-up treatments to maintain the desired results. These touch-ups can usually be done a few weeks after the initial treatment, but it’s important to discuss this with our team at Uptown Body Contouring to ensure that the timing is appropriate for your schedule.

We offer cosmetic injectables to treat the following areas or conditions:

  • Dark circles under eyes
  • Frown lines or furrowed brows
  • Nasolabial folds/marionette lines
  • Crow’s feet/smile lines
  • Recessed chin
  • More…

Our aesthetic specialists are highly skilled at recommending and administering just the right dose of the best injectable to produce the desired results. If you are considering cosmetic injectables before the holidays, it’s important to plan ahead and schedule your appointment with enough time for the treatment to take effect. By doing so, you can enjoy a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance just in time for the festive season.
