Prolonging The Effects Of Botox: Is This Truly Possible?

Botox is a popular treatment among many looking to prevent the accumulation of wrinkles. However, its effects are temporary, and patients must undergo regular treatment to maintain their youthful look. As such, it is not surprising to find that many are actively looking for a permanent solution to their wrinkle woes.

If you have ever come across an article promoting a solution to make the effects of Botox last forever, don’t fall for that clickbait article. While the effects of Botox and fillers may be temporary, their longevity is dependable on several factors, including an individual’s metabolism rate and lifestyle factors, the type of Botox administered, and any possible immune response to the proteins present in the Botox.

While these factors are outside our control, there are ways for you to enhance the rejuvenating effects of your Botox treatment. To accomplish this feat, you will need to improve your skin condition – after all, youthful-looking skin is all about rejuvenation and prevention. However, it is vital to note that the tips we are sharing do not directly prolong the results of the Botox injectables, although they do help in reducing your dependency on such treatments.

Tip #1: Apply sunscreen regularly.

In sunny Singapore, where the sun is a ubiquitous presence all year round, it is essential for you to apply sunscreen regularly, even when you are at home. This is because constant exposure to UVA and UVB, which are present in sunlight, can accelerate the skin’s ageing process, as the rays destroy the cells and impede their ability to regenerate.

Even when you are regularly at home, you will still be exposed to UVA and UVB rays as they can penetrate through windows. Therefore, sunscreen usage is crucial in preventing photoaging and preserving your skin’s elasticity by safeguarding you against these harmful rays. Additionally, we recommend minimising your use of smartphones and other electronic devices, as they emit blue light, which can also cause photoaging.

Tip #2: Opt for heat-based maintenance or skin-boosting treatments in-between your Botox procedures.

If you have been keeping up with the latest beauty trends, you will undoubtedly have heard of Profhilo®, one of the latest skin-boosting treatments available in the market.

When this treatment is planned properly with your dermatologist, its moisture-retaining effects can be significantly boosted. Furthermore, Profhilo® is made from hyaluronic acid, which attracts moisture. Through regular treatment, you can plump up your skin considerably, allowing you to extend the waiting period in-between your Botox procedures – it’s no wonder so many doctors and patients believe Profhilo is worth the hype.

Alternatively, our aesthetic clinic also offers a heat-based treatment like INFINI RF. By undergoing regular treatment, this procedure can help to tighten the skin and stimulate collagen growth, which slows down the ageing process, improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and keeps you looking perky and youthful!

Tip #3: Enhancing your skincare routine

Establishing a proper skincare routine is crucial to keeping your skin supple and moisturised, allowing you to maintain your youthful look. However, your skincare routine also plays a vital factor in prolonging the time in between your Botox treatment.

Regular and ample hydration of your skin should be one of the key considerations of your skincare routine as you look to plump up your skin. We recommend using products that contain moisturising ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, as they help to reduce any fine lines caused by dry skin by keeping your skin plump and supple.

Additionally, you can also consider incorporating acids peels, like retinol peels, into your current skincare routine if you have not done so already. This method can help with skin cell reproduction as the retinol penetrates the deeper layers of your skin, where your live skin cells are, and encourages them to grow and renew.

A retinol peel can also aid in unclogging your pores, thereby reducing acne breakout by allowing the cleansed skin to heal. This makes it an effective acne treatment routine in addition to its rejuvenating quality on your skin.

While establishing a proper skincare routine may not prolong the effects of your Botox treatment, as these factors are typically outside a person’s direct control, it can extend the intervals between each of your treatment sessions.
