Botox is one of the most commonly used non-surgical treatments to fight the signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles. If you’ve had it or are considering it, you may not know that you can make Botox last longer.

There are simple yet important steps you can take to ensure longer lasting results you love! 

The Most Important Step You Should Take Is Choosing the Right Provider

Education, skill, and experience are an absolute must to get the best possible Botox results. It’s also important to remember only a licensed medical professional can legally administer Botox injections. 

Botox involves injecting a neurotoxin into the muscles in your face, so you want a provider who has full knowledge of facial anatomy and knows exactly how much to inject for safety and effectiveness. 

Immediately After Treatment, You Want to Work Your Muscles

Engaging your facial muscles right after treatment helps to evenly distribute the Botox. So, make some fun expressions to help, but don’t massage it!

Take It Easy on Your Skincare and Activity

Choose a gentle skincare regimen for the first 48 hours after your injections. Avoid anything abrasive, and skip any strenuous activity for at least 24 hours afterward.

Eat Only Foods That Are Good for You 

A healthy diet impacts your entire body, and it impacts your Botox longevity, too. Make it a habit of eating a proper diet and reducing your intake of sugar and processed foods. 

Learn to Manage Your Stress

Stress happens, and it isn’t always a thing you can avoid. You do, however, want to learn techniques to help you manage your stress to get the best Botox results. 

If You Don’t Wear Sunscreen Daily, Start Now

Sunscreen protects your skin from damaging sun rays that, as you know, aren’t good for your skin. Now is the time to make sunscreen part of your daily beauty routine.
