Injectable facial filler treatments have been beneficial for both men and women to reduce the signs of aging for more than a decade. Botox® and dermal fillers both help smooth wrinkles in different ways. If you are thinking of facial rejuvenation before summer, be aware that sunlight can affect the treatment results. Here is what you need to know about how the summer sun can affect your facial filler treatments.
Summer Sun and Botox Facial Filler Treatments
Botox can be one of several helpful facial filler treatments to correct crow’s feet, drooping brows and downturned corners around the mouth. Treatment needs to be done approximately every three months to maintain optimal results. According to research, Botox treatment can be safe during the summer. Swelling and redness can be exacerbated after treatment from UV exposure. However, these side effects are minor and typically do not affect treatment results.
Dermal Facial Filler Treatments and Summer Sun Do Not Mix
Dermal facial filler treatments can be effective at plumping lines and depressions in the skin for a more youthful appearance. These products often contain hyaluronic acid, which can degrade when exposed to sunlight. If you receive these treatments during the summer, you will need to protect your skin. Avoid sunlight as much as possible a week after injections and apply sunscreen daily. Using skincare products containing antioxidants can help maximize your results from these anti-aging treatments.
