How to Maintain Injectable Results Between Appointments

Aesthetic treatments, like BOTOX Cosmetic and Juvederm, can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. However the results from these treatments are not permanent.  They typically last anywhere from 3 to 12 months, depending on the treatment and patient.  To keep your results looking fresh in between treatments, we have a few tips:

Increasing the Longevity of Injectable Results

Combining other non-surgical treatments with injectables can help prolong the effects of skin rejuvenation and help achieve more comprehensive results. Your facial muscles may not respond immediately to the first treatment because these muscles tend to be resilient. Repeated treatments will weaken the muscles over time, which can help reduce the prominence of fine lines and wrinkles while increasing the longevity of your results.

Limit Sun Exposure and Avoid Smoking

We all know sun damage is not good for our skin. The UV rays can actually make wrinkles appear more noticeable. Wearing sunscreen and sunglasses can help protect your skin from sun damage. Even worse than sun exposure is smoking. When you smoke cigarettes, nicotine narrows your blood vessels, which reduces the supply of nutrients to the skin. This can contribute to having more wrinkles and duller skin.

Watch Your Diet

Eating more fruits and vegetables will provide your body with additional nutrients, which can help you maintain more youthful-looking skin. Sugary foods, on the other hand, can actually cause wrinkles to form more quickly because sugar can weigh down elastin and collagen fibers after binding to them. Staying hydrated will also help to plump the skin naturally.

Manage Stress

Wrinkles often develop when the stress hormone cortisol reduces elastin production. Finding outlets for stress and exercising more regularly can help reduce your cortisol levels and suppress premature aging. Keeping your forehead and brow relaxed may also help reduce the appearance of new wrinkles in those common areas and maintain your results.

Consistent Maintenance

Scheduling follow-up treatments well in advance can help maintain the results of injectable treatments because you’re sticking to a schedule. Add your treatment to the calendar, just like you would a dentist appointment. We can work with you to develop a treatment plan that is right for you.
