As you get older, you may start to notice the development of frown lines and wrinkles in your face. Botox® injections can help reverse these signs of aging to help you look and feel younger. To maintain your results, these injections will need to be repeated around every six months. There are things that you can do to help your results last longer. Here are three ways you can help extend the results of your Botox injections.
Protect Your Skin from Harmful Sun Exposure
The most damaging environmental pollutants for your skin can be the UVA and UVB rays from the sun and tanning beds. Exposure can create inflammation and cause blood vessels to dilate. This can shorten the lifespan of your Botox injections. When going outdoors, use sunscreen, wear a wide-brimmed hat and avoid going out during peak UV hours to extend your results.
Maintain a Healthy Diet
The food you eat can have a significant impact on your skin’s health. Processed and packaged foods with excess salt and sugar can shorten the lifespan of your Botox injections. Maintain a healthy diet by choosing hydrating fruits and vegetables and drinking plenty of water. A plastic surgeon can help recommend the best foods to eat to extend the results of your Botox injections.
Hydrate Your Skin
Hydrating your skin is essential to maintaining supple and younger skin. Slather moisturizer on your skin in the morning and at night to help extend the results of your Botox injections. Increasing your water intake can also improve skin elasticity and slow the return of fine lines and wrinkles.
