Nine Ways to Make Your Botox and Dermal Fillers Last Longer

Botox treatments and dermal fillers have only one thing that many people consider to be a “flaw” – they aren’t permanent. This means that, should you want to continue having your wrinkles smoothed and your face looking younger and fresher, you’ll need to keep going back for additional treatments. Many people are looking for tips to get the most out of their Botox injections – here’s what you need to know about keeping your Botox-look for longer:

Get Treatments Regularly

Don’t skip treatments when you start getting Botox done. Ensuring you get your Botox treatments on a regular schedule will mean that the results have a higher likelihood of lasting longer. Muscles will begin to train themselves to react less and less, ensuring that the results of the Botox will retain for longer.

Don’t Get Too Much Botox

Conversely, make sure that you don’t go overboard with your treatments! Never get too much Botox done, and avoid going for “touch-ups” if you feel that the Botox isn’t lasting as long as it should. Muscles will become resistant to the Botox if they are introduced to it too often.

Schedule Before It Wears Off

If you’re trying to get the most out of your Botox treatments, try to schedule your next injection just before your previous treatment wears off. What this might do is kick your body into overdrive and cause the next Botox treatment to last longer than usual!

Dosage Matters

You and your doctor will need to work together to find out how much Botox you’ll need to have a successful treatment. Each body reacts to the injections differently, and every person may need a different amount. If you notice that the effects wear off quickly, talk with your doctor and ask if a higher or lower dosage might be right for you.

Sunblock is Key

Slather on the sunblock before heading outside to preserve your wrinkle-free look. Not only will this help maintain your Botox results, it will keep your skin healthy!

Keep Up With Skin Care

Keeping up on continual skin care will ensure your younger-looking skin stays younger-looking for longer. Make sure to use lotion at least 1-2 times a day, and drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.

Supplement with Zinc

Studies show that Botox reacts directly with the levels of zinc in our bodies, and can’t function correctly unless there’s enough zinc present. Many people have a slight zinc deficiency, so it’s suggest you begin taking zinc supplements when beginning regular Botox treatments to prolong the anti-aging effects.

Avoid Being Critical

Many people are tempted to constantly look at themselves in the mirror after having Botox or derma fillers done, but this isn’t recommended. What ends up happening is that patients will frown, squint, and furrow their brows when they go to check themselves out in the mirror – this invigorates the muscles effected by the Botox, causing them to lose their effect quicker!

Don’t Stress

Lastly, be sure not to stress over how you look after your Botox treatments. Dermal fillers are something that a large number of the populace uses as they age in order to maintain an attractive look, so there’s no reason to be self-conscious or worry. Besides, worrying will increase the chance for wrinkles! Eliminate worry, and you’ll eliminate wrinkles.
