Find out how much downtime you need for fillers, Botox, and more popular beauty treatments.
There’s an unspoken rule on dating apps that says if you don’t meet the person you’re talking to within a week, it’s never going to happen. Someone’s leaving tomorrow to go solo backpacking for the month but will hit you up when they’re back? Forget about it. You have to “figure out your work schedule” before confirming Wednesday? No, you’re just not that interested. These things move quickly, so when you do find a hot filmmaker who lives in your neighborhood and is passionate about climate change, you have to shoot your shot-even if you have a standing lip plumping appointment on the books.
The good news is that the most popular cosmetic procedures of the moment are non-invasive, meaning you can go in on your lunch break and downtime is minimal or even non-existent. With a skilled professional and a great concealer, you can have your Botox and your Hinge date all in one night, whereas in other cases, it’s best to give your skin the buffer of a couple days off.
Below, Gabby Garritano, PA, founder of medical aesthetics clinic JECT NYC, and dermatologist Shereene Idriss, MD, of Union Square Laser Dermatology, break down the recovery windows for the most common beauty treatments. Because if you can avoid a guy knocking your newly injected cheekbones when he goes in for the kiss, trust me, you should.
Richard: "While he’s avoided aggressively targeting gun owners, Biden has previously emphasized his commitment to holding gun manufacturers liable when one of their products is used in the commission of a crime." I hope that also applies to car makers, knife makers, shoe makers, and hammer makers as well since each of these items (not shoes particularly, but since hands and feet are counted) kills more people than all types of rifles put together. "Biden has cast himself as a relative moderate in recent months on gun-control. His campaign’s gun control plan, which was released in October, proposed reinstating an “assault-weapons ban” and universal background checks, but would not force the current owners of semiautomatic rifles to sell the guns to government..." That's not the action of a moderate, but of someone that's scared to death of a lawfully-armed citizenry. I always wonder why the left is afraid of law-abiding citizens with guns but are quite OK with criminals being armed to the teeth.
