Six ways to extend Botox treatment

Many of our patients ask the question: “how long does Botox last?” Generally, a single Botox therapy session can last anywhere between six to eight months. Results vary between patients, but that shouldn’t stop you from taking advantage of a great personal enhancement to rejuvenate your youthful glow.

Protect your skin from the sun

It’s often forgotten that sun is actually harmful to our skin. Overexposure to UV rays can affect the effects of injectables like Botox, Juvederm, or Dysport. We strongly suggest you use a high quality, broad-spectrum sunscreen to make sure your skin stays protected.

Take care of your skin

You may be using Botox to reverse wrinkles and smooth crease lines on your face, but you also need to focus on the overall health of your skin. Eating a healthy diet full of antioxidants and staying hydrated are key in keeping your skin healthy. You will also want to moisturize your skin as needed to keep it plump and wrinkle-free.

Eat the right food

It can be tough to eat healthy in our world of fast food and easily accessible deserts. At New Beginnings Medical, we understand how hard a diet can be, but your skin’s health is based on what you eat. Keep a lot of healthy snacks nearby. Stay away from processed or packaged foods as much as you can. And remember to stay hydrated — but we already mentioned that.

 

 

Give zinc supplements a try

A few studies have linked zinc to the efficacy of Botox injections. Taking a zinc supplement may extend the effects of Botox up to 30 percent. Surprisingly, most people have a Zinc deficiency, and the supplement may help remedy it, too.

Find ways to reduce stress

It’s been shown that stress leads to negative systemic health issues like cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and more. Adverse effects occur to your skin, especially on your face, when you’re constantly stressed. Do some meditation. Find an exercise class you can complete each week. Figure out what will keep your stress level down. Your skin will thank you for it.
