The effects of aging can be slowed down and even reversed with the use of Botox and dermal fillers. However, their effects do wear off as these products are naturally degraded by the body. The following advice will help Botox last longer.
Once you start to receive Botox injections, you should normally need to continue taking Botox treatments every four to six months to preserve your results. While some of our patients only need to visit our clinic once every 12 months to preserve their benefits, many of them experience wrinkle-free skin for up to six months.
So the question is : What can make Botox last longer? Is it even possible? We are often asked for advice on this topic in our clinics. And here is the answer.
”Botox cannot be made to stay longer, however you can contribute to the duration of its effect”.
Results from Botox injections often start to show up 7-8 days following your procedure and peak around 14 days. Over a period of three to six months, your Botox’s effectiveness will progressively decline. Follow these recommendations to ensure you get the most out of your treatments:
Tips To Make Botox Last Longer
Employ a trained medical aesthetician with extensive experience. For best effectiveness. Botox injections require precise injection sites and the right dosage.
Avoid the sun since sun damage results in wrinkles before they should. These skin-damaged wrinkles are resistant to Botox because the underlying muscles are not involved. Wear SPF every day on your hands, neck, and face. Use a high-quality broad-spectrum sunscreen and stay indoors during peak UV hours to extend the life of your results.
Skin care – If you take good care of your skin, the effects of Botox and fillers will stay longer. Patients who moisturize AM and PM and stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water will enhance the water-absorption effect of hyaluronic-based fillers. This aids in keeping the treated regions smooth and plump.
Eating Well – Your diet has an impact on your skin’s health and look. Limit your intake of sugar and steer clear of processed and packaged foods. Maintain a constant, healthy weight. Extreme weight loss will decrease the duration and efficacy of your anti-aging injections, especially on your face.
Less Stress – Stress has a detrimental impact on your body in many ways, speeds up aging, and accentuates common aging symptoms. Reduce needless stressors in your life and incorporate stress-relieving practices like yoga or meditation into your day to maximize the effects of your injections.
Zinc supplements – Several studies have revealed a connection between the body’s zinc levels and the effects of Botox. Many people frequently have a mild zinc shortage. After receiving Botox, taking a zinc supplement on a regular basis may assist to extend the anti-aging effects.
Stop Smoking – Smoking ages your skin and shortens your life.
Exercise Effects – Unfortunately, a small number of patients who are ardent runners and workout-alcoholics discover that the effects of Botox and Fillers do not persist as long. Since there is no “cure” for this, keep being active. You become joyful and healthy when you workout and run. Simply try to avoid frowning when exercising. When outdoors, put on a baseball cap and sunglasses to prevent squinting in the intense light.
