Getting botox injections is more common now than it was ever before. Botox gives your skin that plump, younger look but most people undergoing the process remain concerned about the duration of the results. Here, we will give you 6 Tips to Make Botox Injections Last Longer in Dubai, Abu Dhabi & Sharjah so that you can get the max out of each treatment. Following these instructions, you can easily make your botox injections last twice as long (up to 6 months).
Aim of the Procedure:
Botox aka “botulinum toxin (A or B)” is a stable, non-reactive liquid chemical compound that is used as a filler under the skin through injection. As a toxin, it inhibits certain muscle movements and reduces the aging effects caused by wrinkles and loose skin, and even sweating issues.
Botox gives consistent results after each treatment but the body treats it like any other toxin and slowly removes it from your skin over time. Although inevitable, there are certain things that you can do to make these results last. The effects of botox, seen properly after a couple of weeks, last for 4-6 months and when used in combination with certain fillers can result in only annual visits to maintain the look.
Always Choose the Right Care provider:
Always get treatment from a qualified medical practitioner, such as those at Enfield Royal Clinic in Dubai, to make sure you get the best care and service. Choosing the right doctor also means you get the best follow-up treatments for your case.
Avoid Direct Sunlight:
Exposure to direct sunlight is not recommended even for normal skin so it is obvious that you should avoid prolonged exposure and always use sunblock wherever you go outside. UV rays can not only cause damage to the skin but will also induce sweating which is never recommended.
No rubbing or scratching or using Cheap Skincare products:
Botox requires a couple of days to settle down and evenly distribute itself under the skin. It is therefore pertinent not to rub or scratch the treated area for at least 48-72 hours post-treatment to avoid uneven distribution of the injection. Your doctor may suggest topical ointment to help with the healing process but remember not to use any cheap or untrustworthy skincare products.
Avoid making facial expressions:
Botox inhibits muscle movement and making too many facial expressions can cause wrinkles to reappear. Controlling your emotions and expressions can be a challenge for some people but remember that forcing muscle movement will shorten the effectiveness of botox injections.
Stay Hydrated and Eat Healthily:
“You are what you eat”. Always stay properly hydrated and eat healthy unprocessed food to supplement your body’s everyday requirements. Eating less sugar will ensure your skin’s elasticity and will prolong the duration of botox treatment.
Avoid Alcohol and Smoking:
Alcohol causes dehydration and thinning of blood while smoking causes narrowing of blood vessels and consequently dehydration due to lack of blood supply to the skin. Avoiding both is necessary to maintain not just a healthy life but also your botox injections.
If you follow all the above-mentioned tips, your botox injections may last for 6 months or even longer. Botox Injections are a quick and non-surgical method of resolving issues such as wrinkles, lines, and loose skin. It is also less costly and has a shorter recovery period as compared to other methods.
