How to Make Botox Last Longer

Getting the best possible results from Botox requires more than just a single treatment. While you can see great results the first time you try Botox, you should make sure you’re taking the proper steps to make your youthful appearance last. At Pearl-Ereso Plastic Surgery Center, we’re experienced in using Botox to treat patients with frown lines and wrinkles. In this post, our expert plastic surgeons, Drs. Samuel Pearl and Alexander Ereso, explain how to make your Botox results last longer.

Choose the Right Doctor

Finding a doctor you trust may be the most important thing you can do to make your Botox results last. Choose a doctor with experience using Botox and stick with the same doctor for all of your injections. Your doctor will know your full injection history and the exact facial appearance you prefer. If you must switch doctors, be sure to tell your new doctor about your history with injectables.

Determine Your Optimal Injection Frequency

It often takes a little bit of experimenting for a patient to find the exact look they want to achieve using Botox. You’ll need to figure out which facial areas you want treated, how much Botox to use and how often to get Botox treatments. It’s also important to remember that Botox builds up over time. You may initially need four Botox treatments per year, but then require only two treatments per year after you’ve been regularly receiving Botox.

Avoid Prolonged Sun Exposure

The basics of skin care are still important to a Botox patient, which includes protecting yourself from the sun’s harmful rays. Once you’ve found a Botox treatment program that gets you amazing results, you don’t want to spoil it by spending too much time in the sun. Wearing hats and using sunscreen are vital to keep your skin healthy and protect the youthful appearance achieved with Botox.
