The secret is out! Today we spill the beans on the five ways to make Botox last longer so you can ride out this holiday season with flawless skin.
What Is Botox?
Botox is an injectable toxin that relaxes the muscles in your face which cause the visible appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Once relaxed, your muscle releases the wrinkle for smoother skin.
How Long Does Botox Last?
For most patients, you can expect your treatment results to last for around three to four months.
However, there are ways to ensure your Botox lasts the full time.
Find the Right Injector
The best way to ensure your Botox treatments have been delivered in a way that produces the longest lasting results is to see the right doctor.
Always make sure that your doctor is board certified and that they are an expert injector with a lot of experience.
Move Your Muscles
Immediately after your treatment, take the time to consciously move your muscles in the treatment area.
This helps the Botox to move around the area for a more even distribution.
Keep your hands and skin care products off your face for a day or two after your injections to avoid adverse effects.
Stay Out of the Sun
Sun damage and exposure to UV rays can be damaging for your treatments.
Avoid the sunlight and wear an SPF to protect your treatment results.
Pre Schedule Your Follow Up
You should always schedule your next treatment for Botox to ensure that there is no time in between when your results wear off.
