Tips on Getting the Most out of Your Botox Treatment
As one of the leading non-surgical cosmetic treatments available, many people are familiar with Botox for improving the appearance of facial wrinkles. Whether you are considering Botox for the first time, or you routinely receive Botox injections, everyone has an interest in getting the most out of their treatment.
For preventative use or to treat wrinkles that have occurred from repetitive facial expressions such as frowning, Botox is used to stop particular muscles from contracting, which gives the face a more refreshed and smooth appearance. What can you do to extend your results from Botox?
The key to longer lasting results from Botox could be as simple as maintaining regular treatments. While results vary from person to person, Botox is usually effective for about three to four months before it is no longer present. Because of this, receiving treatments on a routine basis (about 3-4 times a year) can continually weaken the muscles that cause wrinkles and extend results over time.
Healthy skin care
Of course, there are actions to take beyond Botox injections to maintain healthy skin. In coordination with regular Botox treatments, there are several core skin care practices to maintain beautiful skin. Remember to:
- Drink plenty of water
- Avoid smoking
- Avoid overexposure to sunlight, especially during the peak sunlight hours
- Wear a broad-spectrum SPF sunscreen daily (link to LeBeau Skin)
When considering Botox, it’s important to look for a reputable physician with experience administering Botox. A Board Certified Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon with aesthetic experience is the ideal option when considering Botox treatments. Performed by the right physician, Botox is a safe and highly effective way to reduce facial wrinkles.
