FDA-approved as a cosmetic injection treatment that is commonly used to temporarily smooth out skin wrinkles, Botox is an amazing treatment to help you rejuvenate.
If you’re using Botox for smoother, more beautiful skin how can you make the effects last longer between appointments? Here are three great tips for how to make Botox last longer.
Physical activity tends to cause Botox to break down more quickly, because the neurotoxins are being metabolized. That’s not to say you shouldn’t exercise if you have Botox, just that moderation is key. Many clients find a compromise, such as switching out their intense cardio routine for something more low impact.
We already know that the sun’s UVA and UVB rays are very damaging to the skin over time, but they can also be a major factor in the breaking down of Botox treatments. It might come as a surprise that the light coming from screens, blue light, is also damaging your skin. The best solution for this is to find a sunscreen with a blue light filter and incorporate it into your morning skin care routine even if you’re staying in.
Stress can cause skin damage and breakouts, as well as melt away Botox faster than normal. This is why meditation is a great tool for prolonging the effects of Botox. Whenever you feel yourself getting stressed, try turning on a guided meditation video, and do your best to get back to a relaxed state of mind.
