How to prolong your Injectable treatment results
Interested in prolonging that fresh look after muscle relaxing injections or fillers?
Here’s how you can you can optimise the results and duration of muscle relaxing injections and dermal filler to achieve maximum results for the longest time possible.
What causes Neurotoxin (muscle relaxing injections)and Filler to fade?
These treatments, including Muscle relaxing injections, use a natural substance called botulinum toxin which is safely derived from bacteria. Dermal fillers are also made with natural components such as hyaluronic acid. These ingredients are naturally absorbed back into your body over time. The rate of this absorption varies from person to person and is influenced by several factors;
1. Facial Movement and Treatment Location: The more active a facial area, the quicker Botox and fillers tend to wear off. For instance, treatments around highly expressive areas like the forehead may fade faster than those in less mobile regions.
2. Type of Treatment: Different fillers are designed for various purposes and areas, affecting how long they last. Similarly, various neurotoxins might be absorbed at different rates. If you find one type fading quicker, we can explore other options.
3. Environmental Impact: Factors like UV exposure and pollution can accelerate the breakdown of these treatments. An effective skincare routine that includes sunscreen and Vitamin C, is vital.
4. Your Unique Physiology: Everyone’s body reacts differently. Your metabolism, genetics, and even lifestyle can impact how long treatments last. Active individuals might find their treatments metabolizing faster.
How to prolong the effects of Muscle relaxing injections and fillers.
1. Post-Treatment Care: Gentle facial exercises right after your muscle relaxing injections can help distribute the product evenly. Also, avoid touching or applying pressure to the treated areas for 24 hours to ensure the product stays in place.
2. Hydration is Crucial: Internal and external hydration aids in maintaining your results. Products like Obagi Hydrate Luxe Moisturizer, rich in hyaluronic acid, keep your skin supple and extend the life of your injectables.
3. Effective Skincare Routine: Enhance the water-absorption effect of hyaluronic-based fillers with a good skincare routine. Skinceuticals HA Intensifier and Skinceuticals retinols are examples of specific products that work to stimulate collagen production, supporting the longevity of your treatments.
4. Protect Against UV Damage: Overexposure to UV rays can counteract the benefits of injectables. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen and practice sound sun protection to maintain your results.
5. Nutrition Matters: A diet low in processed foods and sugar reduces inflammation, translating to better skin health and prolonged treatment effects.
6. Zinc Supplementation: Some studies suggest that higher zinc levels in the body can enhance Botox efficacy. Consider a zinc supplement post-treatment.
7. Manage Stress: High stress levels release hormones that accelerate aging. Incorporate stress relief techniques like meditation or yoga to extend the benefits of your injectables.
