Getting Botox? Ways You Can Make Its Results Last

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.

Stay Moisturized

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

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.

Avoid Over-Expression

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.

About Me

Iron Out Your Wrinkles with Dermal Fillers

Hey there! My name is Margo White. I am a 52-year old mother of two who has her first grandchild on the way. When my son told me that he was expecting his first child, I was overjoyed. But as the news set in, I found it hard to believe that I was going to be a grandma. After all, I didn't feel that old, nor did I think I looked that old. Then I looked in the mirror and saw how tired and wrinkled my face had become. It was then that I decided I was going to be the best looking grandma I could be. I decided to have dermal fillers used on my face to iron out the wrinkles. I decided to make this website to go over the different types of fillers that can be used and weight the pros and cons of each type.
