As the summer months approach, baking in the mid-day sun becomes an unavoidable part of most leisure activities. One of the questions asked frequently is whether or not this prolonged exposure to damaging UV rays can also hinder the effectiveness or safety of Botox Cosmetic.

Luckily, sunbathing is no more damaging with recent Botox Cosmetic than it is on any other day. However, it may diminish the effectiveness of the treatment in a couple of ways.

Botox Cosmetic prevents wrinkle formation, but harmful UV rays contribute to the aging process. In addition, sun exposure too soon after Botox injections can cause the solution to migrate away from the targeted areas as the blood vessels dilate in the heat.
