What are some ways to achieve the best Botox results after receiving it from Dr. Lamb at HealthyLooks?

Botox is an injectable toxin designed to relax facial muscles, giving plastic surgeons the chance to address stubborn fine lines and wrinkles. The effects of Botox (and other versions, like Dysport) do not last forever, however. While it varies from one person to the next, we’d like to share some basic guidelines and show you how to evaluate whether you’d be a suitable candidate.

Typical Botox Results with HealthyLooks

Botox should last for at least 3 ½ months following the injection. Of course, it’s not as if the wrinkles automatically return as soon as movement stops. You might not notice the wrinkle resurface until after five months.

If you desire more certainty, to eliminate crow’s feet and wrinkles, then it helps to remain consistent with injections during 3 ½-month intervals. Once it’s in your skin, it works indefinitely, however.

Sometimes, athletes and physically fit individuals may have trouble over-metabolizing the Botox. It’s possible to exercise and sweat off some of the substance because when we exercise we emit heat through our heads. This has been shown to shorten the duration of Botox.

Are you a Good Candidate for Botox Treatment?

Therefore, it helps to determine if you’re a suitable candidate for this procedure. You would need to see if there are lines that are creating an untoward expression (frowns, eyebrow raises, squinting, etc.). Folks who have those difficulties are the ones who benefit the most from this.

Another issue is the effect of aging on the skin. As we get older, those crow’s feet lines become much more noticeable because our skin gets much thinner around the face.

We also notice a certain problem for older patients who struggle to see, perhaps because of cataracts, and over-elevate the brow to compensate. This contributes to those horizontal wrinkle lines across the forehead. So, if you’re trying to diminish signs of aging, and make yourself appear younger, it’s all about addressing those untoward expressions that are overworking your facial muscles.

It’s probably your best bang-for-your-buck among all the injectable toxins on the market. It can eliminate frown lines, help you relax, and even ease tension headaches. Botox treatment carries the best value for any cosmetic treatment in the country (and probably worldwide).

More on Why Botox Wears Off

You may wonder why does Botox wear off at all?

We already mentioned the role of metabolism, but there are a few other factors that affect the duration as well.

  • Activity Level – If you work out a lot, especially too soon after Botox, then you may notice less duration. Fortunately, when that happens, we can explore other injectables that are more compatible with your body chemistry. This would include other common toxins like Dysport or Jeuveau.
  • Volume Injected – It should come as no surprise that the amount of Botox you receive will affect results as well. There is a certain degree of trial-and-error involved with this approach. Some patients require a higher dosage than others.
  • Surgeon’s Skill – Finally, make sure you’re receiving Botox from a skilled practitioner, either a board-certified plastic surgeon (like Dr. Lamb), or nurse injector under the supervision of one.
