6 Ways to Make Your Botox or Dermal Filler Results Last Longer

Injectable products such as dermal fillers and Botox are a great way to reverse the common signs of aging but the effects of these injectables, while long-lasting, do eventually wear off as they are naturally degraded by the body.

Depending on the type of injectable used, you’ll be able to enjoy the results anywhere from 4-12 months. However, if you do want to extend the life of your Botox/dermal filler treatment, here are 6 tips to follow:


1. Protect Your Skin From the Sun

Did you know that overexposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays can actually reverse the benefits of your cosmetic injectable treatment? That’s why it’s advisable to avoid the sun for at least 72 hours after your treatment and then practice sound sun protection while outside. This includes:

  • Using a quality, broad-spectrum sunscreen
  • Avoiding the outdoors during peak UV hours
  • Wearing a wide-brimmed hat while outside

Remember: Sun damage is the leading cause of premature wrinkles, so even on overcast days, make sure to always wear quality sunscreen.

2. Practice Good Skin Care

The benefits of Botox and dermal fillers will last longer for individuals who take good care of their skin. Patients who stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water, follow a healthy diet, and moisturizer daily, will enhance the water absorption effect of hyaluronic-based fillers, helping the treatment areas to remain plump and wrinkle-free!

3. Eat a Healthy Diet

The food you eat will not only affect your overall health but also the health and appearance of your skin. If you are looking to maximize the results of your cosmetic injectable treatment, then you should consider:

  • Staying away from processed and packaged foods
  • Limiting your sugar intake
  • Cutting down on dairy
  • Increasing the amount of Omega 3 fats in your diet
  • Watching your caffeine and alcohol intake

Remember: The increased inflammation or level of toxins caused by these foods in your body will be translated to your overall skin health.

4. Use a Qualified Plastic Surgeon

For the best and most effective results, cosmetic injectables require an appropriate dosage and the correct injection site, which can vary from patient to patient. An experienced plastic surgeon or skin specialist will be able to customize your treatment and create a plan that is best for you, ultimately leading to better and longer-lasting results.

5. Control Your Stress Levels

Whether stress stems from your career, finances, or relationship, it can negatively affect your body in many ways, and can even accelerate the aging process in your skin. To extend the benefits of your injectable, you should try to eliminate any unnecessary stress-inducers in your life, while practicing appropriate stress relief techniques

6. Consider Maintenance Treatments

One of the best ways to extend the life of your Botox or dermal filler treatments is to undergo maintenance procedures before your results wear off. Recurrent treatments are especially useful for Botox as they may train targeted muscles to respond to the neurotoxin for longer periods of time, meaning that eventually, you will require fewer touch-ups.

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
