Botox and dermal fillers are a great way to slow down and reverse the signs of ageing. However, their effects may wear off as these products are degraded by your body naturally. Our patients are always delighted with the long-term benefits of anti-ageing treatments. On average, our dermatologists see the patients every 6-8 months for botox treatments.
After starting with the botox injections, you should maintain your results by taking treatments every 4-6 months. Some of our patients even enjoy wrinkle-free skin for up to 6 months while others only need to visit the clinic every 12 months to refresh their smooth skin with botox.
So, the main question is—how to make Botox treatment last longer? Is it possible to do so?
Here is the answer to all your questions:
Botox treatment doesn’t last long but you can extend the length of its effect. And here are a few tips using which you can do that:
1. Use an Expert for Botox Treatment
Botox injections require correct dosage and precise injection sites for maximum effectiveness. So make sure to get it done by someone who is highly experienced and knowledgeable in this area.
2. Avoid Exercise And Heat for 24 Hours
Make sure to avoid doing any strenuous exercise and getting in touch with excessive heat such as hot yoga, sunlight, facial massages, etc. These things can cause the Botox to migrate to different areas of your face where it shouldn’t go and result in eyelid drooping, temporary facial paralysis, etc.
3. Avoid the Sun
Sun damage causes premature ageing. Botox treatments are highly ineffective against sun-damaged wrinkles as they do not involve the underlying muscles. Make sure to always wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen on your face, neck and hands every day.
4. Care For Your Skin
The benefits of botox treatments and anti-wrinkle treatments will last longer if you care for your skin properly. Make sure to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and moisturize your skin by following a concrete AM and PM routine. Doing these things will keep the treated areas remain plump and wrinkle-free.

5. Eat Right
You are what you eat. Your diet can greatly affect your appearance as well as your skin’s health. For that reason, avoid eating processed and packaged food, and limit the sugar and salt amount in your diet. Also, make sure to maintain a stable weight.
6. Manage Stress
Stress can adversely affect your body in several ways, speed up the ageing process and increase the appearance of signs. Consider reducing unnecessary stress-inducers from your life and incorporate stress relief techniques such as yoga and meditation.
7. Avoid Smoking
Smoking is one of the major causes of skin ageing and reduced lifespan. Make sure to avoid it at all costs.
8. Maintenance Treatments
A great way to increase the longevity of your botox treatment is to undergo maintenance treatment programs with your dermatologist. Plan appointments before your botox results wear off. Regular Botox treatments are highly useful as they train targeted muscles to respond to Botox injections for longer durations.
