FDA Approved Treatment
For those of us developing lines and wrinkles in our skin, Botox injections are a great way to make us look and feel younger.
Botox is a neuromodulator that reverses signs of aging by preventing muscles from contracting, decreasing the strain on the skin. It is one of the safest and effective anti-wrinkle treatments in the medical spa field.
Botox is FDA-approved for the treatment of lines and wrinkles on the face and neck. These can include crow’s feet, bunny lines, chin dents, and even excessive sweating.
Botox is gradually metabolized by the body, so its muscle relaxant effect degrades over time and requires future treatments to remain effective. It takes 2-6 months for Botox to metabolize. The rate depends on the person and their activity level.
Fast metabolizers may require treatment every two months, and slow metabolizers up to six months. However, for most of you, Botox will last 3-4 months on average.
It takes 2-3 days after injections for results to become apparent, and results continue to improve for up to 1-2 weeks. After a couple of weeks, you will see lasting results for months to come.
Tips to Help Your Botox Last Longer
We all want our Botox treatments to last as long as possible, especially if we’re fast metabolizers.
Here are three tips to help your Botox last longer:
1. Engage Your Facial Muscles
Because Botox directly affects muscle tissue, activating the muscles treated can distribute the product and allow an even spread.
2. Avoid UV Light
Sunlight and UV rays speed up the degradation of Botox. Limiting and protecting against sun exposure is imperative to increasing Botox’s longevity.
3. Don’t Rub Your Face Right Away
For 1-2 days after treatment, avoid rubbing your face, which can unevenly disperse the Botox.
