If you are looking for a minimally invasive and effective way to combat wrinkles and achieve smoother skin, Botox may be the perfect solution for you. Botox is one of the most popular treatments performed by Dr. Layton at Layton Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. These injections are great for removing fine lines and wrinkles and treating medical conditions like chronic migraines and excessive sweating.
As a cosmetic therapy, Botox can treat a variety of aging-related concerns, including eye lines, sunken brows, lines, wrinkles and impressions in the neck area, forehead wrinkles, and glabellar wrinkles between the eyebrows. While Botox is a worthwhile treatment, taking proper care of your skin after your Botox procedure is essential to make the results last longer.
Protect Your Skin from the Sun
The most important thing you can do for your skin is to protect it from the sun’s damaging rays. Not only does using proper sunscreen with high SPF protect you from getting wrinkles and signs of aging in the future, but it could also help ensure the longevity of your Botox results. If you plan to be in the sun, apply a generous amount of sunscreen before you head out, and follow the instructions for reapplication. If you do not feel comfortable using lotion on your face throughout the day, use sprays or powders with SPF.
Use a Hydrating Moisturizer
Another tip for preserving your Botox results is to keep your skin hydrated by applying moisturizer morning and night. While it is essential to keep your skin hydrated, when you use the right moisturizer, you are actively working to keep your skin supple and wrinkle-free. Make sure that the moisturizer you use is suitable for your skin type. You may also want to consider testing a skin oil to boost hydration during the summer months.
Embrace a Healthy Lifestyle
Staying healthy is vital for overall longevity, and when it comes to preserving Botox results, it could also have short-term benefits. For example, experts agree that remaining hydrated could help your skin appear smoother and healthier. Likewise, embracing a diet with lots of fruit and green vegetables can benefit your skin’s health.
Living a healthy lifestyle also includes exercise. Although you should avoid intense exercise for a day or two following your Botox treatment to give the injections time to settle, moderate exercise benefits your skin and overall wellness. Many Botox patients embrace the benefits of yoga or Pilates, which provide numerous benefits for the cardiovascular system. While taking vitamins and supplements should be discussed with your doctor before use, they can also be a great addition to your healthy lifestyle.
