How to Get the Most Out of Your Botox Injections
- Posted on: May 15 2018
Fine lines and wrinkles aren’t exactly you best friend— especially as they get deeper and become more prevalent. However, no matter how hard you try to avoid them, they are inevitable— even if you’ve lived most of your life indoors. Luckily, with injectables like Botox, we at Medical Aesthetics and Wellness can temporarily soften your fine lines and wrinkles and give you a more youthful looking complexion.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox or botulinum toxin A is an injectable that works to temporarily block muscle movements in the face which cause facial wrinkles and lines. Lasting about three to four months on average, Botox has consistently remained one of the most popular cosmetic treatments and is showing almost no sign of slowing down.
How to Get the Most Out of Your Botox?
If you’ve never had Botox injections before, we tell our patients to expect and do a few things before and after treatments to ensure that you are happy with your results and that you get the most out of them.
- Have Realistic Expectations: Botox injections can soften fine lines and wrinkles and help give you a more youthful appearance, but they aren’t going to completely transform your look. One of the things we tell our patients going into Botox is to have realistic expectations. Know what Botox can do and what it’s incapable of doing— that way you feel more satisfied.
- Wear Sunscreen: Sun damage is the number one leading factor of fine lines and wrinkles. To help shield your skin from developing more fine lines and wrinkles–especially after Botox injections- make sure that you are wearing a sunscreen every day.
Invest In Good Skincare
If you haven’t already, invest in good skin care products that contain anti-aging ingredients like retinol and hyaluronic acid. The combination of these ingredients with your Botox will help you get the most out of your injections.
Get It Done Regularly
As previously mentioned, Botox injections last an average of three to four months on average and then fade after that. To get the most out of your Botox month after month, schedule regular injection appointments at our office. We can even schedule them ahead of time so that you can get in as soon as possible without having to experience too much of it wearing off.
These simple tips should help you get the most out of your Botox injections every time. Are you ready to schedule your Botox consultation? Contact our Davenport office today: (563) 355-4813.
