For those who frequent Dr. Evan Ransom’s practice for Botox treatments, the question worth asking is whether or not it’s safe to combine the most popular injectable with the most popular summer activity? Before answering the question, keep in mind that no doctor is likely to recommend any type of tanning, whether in the sun or in a booth.
Overexposure to UV rays is a leading cause of wrinkling and skin cancer. With that said, Botox treatments and sunbathing are not known to cause complications so long as you avoid prolonged sun exposure on the same day as the treatment. This helps to prevent the Botox solution from migrating.
