Easy steps in making your Botox results last longer

Botox injections are used to relax the facial muscles where wrinkles appear, causing them to soften or disappear completely. While results normally last 4 to 6 months, there are certain things you can do to make the results last longer. By taking these suggestions into consideration, you can make sure you make the most out of your Botox injections.

One way to make your Botox last longer is to avoid sun exposure on the day you get your injections. Sun exposure improves the circulation of your blood and could cause the Botox to spread out, thus having a lesser effect on the area with the wrinkles. You should also avoid using products on your face such as masks, toners, scrubs, or cleansers that are too strong because they could affect the Botox.

Keeping up to date with your Botox treatments also makes the results last longer over time. Because Botox weakens the muscles that cause wrinkles, having regular appointments will make them progressively weaker, making the results last longer each time. However, having too many injections can be detrimental. If the appointments are too close together, there’s a possibility that the muscles will become resistant to the Botox, meaning more Botox will be required and it will generally be less effective. Be sure to wait at least 12 weeks between appointments, For best results, you should not be having Botox done any more than 4 times a year. Depending on how long the Botox lasts, even less appointments may be necessary. Be sure to ask your doctor how many he or she would recommend.

With these tips, you can make your Botox results last weeks, even months, longer than they normally would. By taking these precautions, you can ensure that you stay wrinkle-free for the full duration of the Botox injections.
