Why Botox®?

You probably know what Botox® is or at least have heard of the name before.

(Side note: If you’re unsure what Botox® is, check out our article here!)
But why Botox®? What makes it worth it?

Botox® is a brand of wrinkle relaxer that is injected into areas of the face where wrinkles are prominent. These areas may include frown lines between the eyebrows, wrinkles along the forehead, and lines around the eyes (just to name a few!). The formula is FDA-approved, safe and effective, and can be administered in minutes in the hands of an experienced injector. People choose Botox® because of the smoothing benefits it provides, as well as the fact that the actual injection procedure is quick and relatively painless. 

Botox® can be used on a variety of different facial areas, with results typically lasting up to four months. While everyone metabolizes the toxin at different rates, there are a few things you can do to help make your results last longer.


Botox® Tips: How to Make Your Results Last

Now let’s get into some tips to help prolong your results from your Botox® injections!

  • Follow Pre and Post-Treatment Instructions.

Your injector will give you specific instructions to follow both before and after your Botox® appointment. These are essential as they will not only help the process go smoother, but will help make your results last longer. 

  • Avoid Direct Sun Exposure.

Overexposure to the sun can quickly result in sun damage and a breakdown in collagen and elastin. Botox® is not effective against signs of aging due to sun damage because they aren’t caused by muscle movements, which the neurotoxin targets.

Avoid being in the sun for prolonged periods of time, and make sure to always wear sunblock with at least SPF30 (even on cloudy days!)

  • Keep Your Skin Moisturized.

Keeping your skin nourished will help prevent dehydration and dullness. Choosing a good, high-quality moisturizer is important; consider opting for one that contains hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid or niacinamide.

  • Stay Hydrated.

In case you needed another reason to drink more water – Botox® is it! This one may seem simple, but make sure that your daily water intake is sufficient and stay hydrated to keep your skin looking plump and youthful!

  • Keep Up With Any Necessary Touch-Up Sessions.

Regularly scheduling Botox® appointments with your injector will help to prolong your results. Keeping up with maintenance appointments won’t just prolong your results, they can also help prevent new lines and wrinkles from forming! 

Discover More Injectable Options at The Beauty Bar

Now that you’ve learned how to make the results from your Botox® injections last longer, you may be wondering what other treatment options are available that deliver long-lasting results. 

In addition to Botox®, we also offer the equally popular Dysport®. Dysport® is similar to Botox® in use, however its formula contains a different protein that allows for better diffusion. This makes it great for larger surface areas like the forehead, also effectively treating crow’s feet.

We also offer some of the most popular dermal fillers, which can be used in tandem during a single appointment. Many clients opt for this due to the convenience and optimum results it provides.
