Can I fly after having Botox or dermal fillers?

It’s the summer holidays and with many of our clients’ jet setting off on their holidays, we’ve had many people asking us “Can I fly after having Botox and dermal fillers?.

Yes, you can. There is no scientific reason as to why you shouldn’t fly after Botox and dermal fillers. And it’s certainly not dangerous. Hurrah!

    There are two things the doctors at SkinViva would recommend you consider though:

    • Plan your treatment in advance
    • Booking a follow up after your holiday


    When to book a Botox or Dermal Filler appointment before a holiday

    The best advice we can give you is to try and book your appointment at least a few days before you go away. Why? Because Botox and dermal fillers can take a few days to settle, especially Botox as it takes up to 2 weeks to fully relax the muscle (although you should start noticing changes around 4-5 days).

    We always advise our clients to refrain from any strenuous exercise, alcohol and extreme heat (such as saunas) within 24hrs. So, the same could be said for treatment as it could potentially cause discomfort and be detrimental to the final result. More so than a danger!


    Booking a follow up after your holiday

    All of our client’s at SkinViva are entitled to a free follow up after any treatment. Particularly for Botox, client’s sometimes need adjustments after the 2 weeks “settling” period.

    If you are unhappy within the first few days after Botox or dermal filler treatment, we will only book you in for a follow up after 2 weeks has passed. As the filler is settling and the Botox is “working it’s magic”, things can still change within 14 days after treatment.


    Worried about any complications after treatment?

    If in a very rare case you appear to have complications from dermal fillers, the treatment is reversible. This is why you should always seek non-surgical cosmetic treatments with a medical professional who can be trusted to deal with any issues that may occur. Usually these will happen straight away so can be treatable right away.

    Rest assured, all the clinicians at SkinViva are not just taught how to inject Botox or dermal fillers. They’re all trained in how to deal with complications (such as droopy eyebrow) and designing treatments suitable for the individual. Let’s face it, no face is the same!


    In summary, don’t let any of this put you off coming for treatment, but rather try to plan in advance. Particularly if you are wanting to look your best for your holiday snaps!
