When you want to look younger nearly instantly and don't want to go under the knife, you can use Botox and other similar procedures to accomplish this goal. Typical treatments will last some time based on how much you have put in your face and body and where you have the applications put.
You can do your part to make your procedure in Botox and other treatments last as long as possible. Here's how.
Moisturized skin is healthy skin. You should continue moisturizing your face, arms, legs, and other parts of your body that get exposure to the sun and air as you normally do, even if your Botox treatments leave your skin smooth and young-looking. Choose moisturizers rich in vitamins and oils that are healthy for your skin, such as vitamin E, argan oil, avocado oil, or shea butter.
Wear sunscreen every day, even if there doesn't appear to be any sun outside. While the sun itself does not affect the Botox or similar products in your skin, it does cause your skin surrounding your treatments to become looser and less able to stay tight, which can diminish the final results of this treatment. If you're going to get the most out of the skin treatments you have done, make sure your skin has a healthy and elastic foundation.
One of the ways you can cause your Botox and other treatments to wear out more rapidly is to make too many facial expressions, which cause your facial muscles to contort often and can make the intended results of your treatment less impactful. Working out can cause a lot of facial expressions and strain, so either limit the length of time you work out or reduce your activities to lower impact, which can make your facial expressions less severe, and therefore, allow your cosmetic treatments to do their job longer.
Don't Overdo It
Botox is intended to provide subtle improvement in areas where you want to look younger, including the face, hands, and other areas of the body. Too much can cause an unrealistic appearance in patients and can keep the treatment from performing its intended purpose. Seek a Botox specialist who has experience and skill to do your Botox procedure, and only have these procedures done as recommended so you aren't stacking product on top of itself for best results. Your results then will be more appreciated and you'll take care of your skin better, allowing your treatments to last longer.
