How Can I Help My Botox Last Longer?
- Posted on: May 15 2019
The more we learn about Botox, the more we adore it. It’s a workhorse and can do so much more than you may think. For example, did you know that Botox can help with migraines and even those who suffer from excessive sweating?
Our number one reason for our love-affair with Botox is the amazing beautifying results you can receive–without lengthy downtime, surgical scars, and with minimal chance of side effects. Keep reading about how you can minimize crow’s feet, smoker’s lines, and other wrinkles with Botox, and how to keep your results optimal as long as you can.
What is Botox?
Botox is, quite simply, a neurotoxin that attaches itself to nerve endings to weaken facial muscles that cause creases and deep-set wrinkles. It is injected with a very small needle, very precisely at desirable sites on the face to minimize wrinkles and give you a more youthful, smooth appearance.
How Long Does it Last?
Botox results often last from four to six months, but you may be able to stretch out your results even longer by going the extra mile. Consider doing the following to keep your Botox for the best amount of time.
Do your research and find a provider who is well-versed in the art of administering Botox. The right doctor can help you get a more natural, youthful look while also minimizing complications. A doctor new to Botox might administer it incorrectly, leaving you with unnatural swelling or even Botox that fades away sooner than it should.
Take care of and even baby your face for at least a week after you receive your Botox injections. Give your face a rest from abrasive cleansers, scrubs, masks, and toners to give the Botox a chance to settle in and relax under the skin. Think of this first week as your face’s prep week: when the Botox is working its magic underneath and needs to be properly tended to, to give the best results.
