When to Get Botox and Fillers for Summer Vacation

When to Get Botox and Fillers for Summer Vacation

Vacation season will soon be in full swing. If you’re planning a special summer trip and want to look your best while you travel, now is the time to book your Botox® or filler consultation.

At Primary Care Walk-In, we offer Botox therapy and popular fillers to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and plump up sagging skin. Our aesthetic specialists customize a care plan to highlight your natural features with results that last beyond summer.

An overview of Botox and fillers

Botox and fillers are nonsurgical cosmetic treatments that can address various skin issues that become more noticeable as you age. We can recommend which product fits you well based on your aesthetic goals and the issues you want to treat.


Botox is a prescription medication that targets deep-set wrinkles and creases in your upper face. The medication relaxes crow’s feet around your eyes and frown lines across your brow.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers contain substances like hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your body that keeps skin youthful. Fillers can restore lost volume around your cheeks, mouth, and nose and improve the overall symmetry of your face.

When to consider Botox and fillers

You might be a candidate for Botox and fillers if you’re less confident in your appearance because of wrinkles and lost facial volume but aren’t ready for surgery. We customize a treatment plan to address only the issues you want to treat and focus on providing natural-looking, lasting results.

Specifically, we can use Botox and fillers to treat:

Our aesthetic specialists can also use fillers to minimize the appearance of recessed scars on your face that are common with acne.

We provide thorough skin evaluations in the office to determine which fillers will support your aesthetic goals. Treatment with fillers and Botox involves a series of injections in specific areas of your face, and we can provide a topical anesthetic to make your treatment comfortable.

Planning ahead for summer

One of the biggest advantages of fillers and Botox therapy is the almost immediate results they provide. However, if you plan to travel or attend a special event, you should schedule your treatments in advance.

Our team recommends booking a consultation several weeks before your big plans for two reasons:


While Botox and fillers are minimally invasive treatments, you might experience mild swelling and bruising lasting several days.

Scheduling your injections 2-3 weeks before your plans gives your skin time to heal.


The results of fillers are immediate, but you may not see the full benefit of your treatment until the fillers settle in. Depending on the area you’re treating, this can take a few days.

Full Botox results may take a bit longer to see. This is because the medication works quickly to relax contracted facial muscles, but it takes time for your skin to smooth out.
