How to make Botox last longer
Ever wondered if you can get more mileage out of your Botox? If you feel like you're not getting enough out of your injectible, some of these steps may help.
Protect your skin
Keeping on top of your skincare regime is a sure-fire way to help injectables last longer. A skin that is hydrate with a good anti-ageing moisturiser, not to mention protected with a hard-hitting SPF will undeniably work in tandem with this muscle relaxer. Think of your skincare as a top up to keeping your Botox working its magic for the longest amount of time possible.
Keep regular appointments
It may sound counter-intuitive, but staying regular with your Botox appointments actually helps with its longevity. The more often you are able to pop in for ‘maintenance’ means you are actually training your muscles not to react in the way they are used to. Doing this means you will be able to stretch out your maintenance appointments thanks to the Botox lasting longer each time.

When thinking about @botoxcosmetic treatments, it’s important to be informed. Botulinum toxin (botox for short) is used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles in the face. For @dr.vcosmetics it’s important to explain the procedure to the clients. He uses individual needles for every injection site. This ensures accuracy of the amount injected in every area. It also ensures a sharp needle every time he injects. This provides less pain, less swelling and an overall comfortable experience. Dr. Venter received his training in 2012, and has many years of experience and follow up training under his belt.

Who knew stress could impact your frown-lines?! We get told all the time how important it is to try and keep a calm and chilled because it’s so much for our health and wellbeing, but we had no idea that stressing out can bring those fine lines and wrinkles back quicker that you want. High stress releases the hormone cortisol into your system which unfortunately speeds up the ageing process and can result in the deterioration of your injectables. While it can be hard to do especially as the end of the year creeps up, try to reduce stress where you can – your wrinkle-free face will love you for it.
Keep your zinc topped up
A recent study has in fact found that popping a zinc tablet daily can help with the effects of your Botox. This muscle relaxer is in fact a member of an enzyme family called zinc metalloproteinases and these enzymes need zinc to perform properly which you guessed it, means the effects of your injectibles will be able to last longer by adding this tablet into your daily supplement regime.
We're huge fans of light therapy for the impressive effect it can have on your skin, but we love it even more now we know it can help to eeek out your Botox. While this treatment is incredible for a host of skin conditions, did you know it can also help to prolong Botox? Working to improve the skins tone and texture, light therapy is also said to be able to boost your Botox results - win win!
If you are after an excuse to skip the gym, then we may just have the answer for you..... gym bunnies out there might not be too happy to know that exercise can in fact shorten your Botox's lifespan.
