If you aren’t ready for cosmetic surgery but would like to improve your facial appearance, Botox or Dysport may be the right option for you. These aesthetic injectable treatments can help significantly reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles in the forehead, lines around the eyes, and vertical lines between the eyebrows. The results of Botox and Dysport can last from four to six months. However, while the results will inevitably wear off, there are ways to make your treatments last longer.
Here are few helpful tips to consider:
1. Use Sunscreen
Prolonged exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays can reverse the positive effects of any injectable treatment. By protecting your skin from sun damage, you can maintain your results by using sunscreen every day and wearing sun-protective clothing during peak UV hours.
2. Develop a Daily Skin Care Routine
The results of any injectable treatment will last longer for individuals who take great care of their skin. Remember to moisturize your skin daily to enhance the absorption of injectable fillers and support your skin’s integrity.
3. Integrate a Healthy Diet
Following a healthy diet will help maximize the results of your Botox and Dysport treatment. As a result, you are encouraged to eat foods that will help to keep your skin healthy.
Stay away from packaged and processed foods, as well as limit your consumption of sugary foods and drinks. Eating such foods will increase inflammation, thus hindering the results of your treatment.
4. Avoid Stress
Stress can negatively affect our bodies in many different ways. It causes the release of the hormone cortisol, which can lead to excess oil production from your skin’s glands. When there is more oil in the glands, the skin is more prone to pimples and other skin conditions. Try to avoid unnecessary stress with quiet meditation or yoga.
5. Exercise Regularly
You can prolong the results of your injectables by adding regular exercise into your weekly routine. Exercise boosts nutrients and oxygen to the skin and reduces stress levels, all of which slow signs of aging and help you look more relaxed and radiant.
6. Keep Up With Treatments
The most effective way to maintain the results of your injectables is by having regular maintenance treatments before the full effects wear off. Doing this will train your muscles to respond to the neurotoxin for more extended amounts of time. As a result, you can expect fewer treatments in the future while you maintain your results.
