The duration in which how long botox will last depends on each person as everyone is different as our body metabolizes and dissolves the product at a different rate. There are certain factors that may help to prolong the treatment such as using a proper and well- trained injector, moving the muscle that is treated post-treatment, limiting sun exposure, avoid rubbing the area post 24-48 hours as well as limiting high-intensity exercise.

When it comes to any invasive procedure, whether it be injections such as botox or filler, or even surgery, it is best to do research first to find a proper and well-trained specialist in order to achieve proper and safe results. It is important to use a specialist that is knowledgeable about the treatment in order to avoid any complications such as injections as this is an invasive procedure and is at a higher risk for infection. The specialist will also know based on your personal info how many units are needed for optimal yet natural results, as either not enough product can be injected, causing not enough changes, or too much product creating an un natural appearance and may be dangerous as well.

Another factor that may help botox to last longer is by engaging with the muscles treated such as muscle movement with the use of exercise. After getting botox, the specialist will discuss post-treatment after care that is important to follow in order to get optimal results. One of the instructions post-treatment is to move the muscle treated with the use of exercises to help contract the muscle in order to help move the product around and help to “activate” it. For example, if you have been treated in the forehead region, one way that is used to contract the forehead muscles to help move the product around is by lifting your eyebrows up and down. This allows an even distribution of the product, giving optimal results that may also help prolong the results.
Limiting sun exposure does not necessarily help pro long the effects of botox but helps by preventing wrinkles and fine lines resulting in more product having to be used, causing the initial amount not to be enough. Sun exposure increases the number of wrinkles and fine lines by causing the skin to thin and lose its elasticity by damaging the elastin fibres found in our skin that help keep our skin youthful and helps with collagen production to help keep our skin plumped. It is important whether you have or don’t have botox to always use SPF in order to prevent from sun damage as this will increase ageing, resulting in higher number of wrinkles, fine lines, as well as hyper pigmentation.
The last factor that may help pro long the effects of botox is to avoid rubbing the treated area post treatment for up to 24-48 hours. This helps by preventing the product to migrate, and as a result not giving optimal results. It is also important not to use any harsh products during the same amount of time post-treatment in order to let the product set first.
Can being under pressure interfere with botox?
After undergoing botox, the specialist will discuss the post-care instructions on how to take care of it in order to achieve optimal results. One of the main instructions given and recommended is to avoid any pressure on the treated area such as rubbing, touching, or even sleeping face down as this will affect the product. It is important not to disrupt the product with thin the first 24-48 hours as the product needs to set. It is recommended for the first few nights to avoid sleeping face down, and instead face upwards to avoid any pressure on the affected area. Any pressure on the treated area post-treatment may cause the product to migrate, in which the product is not evenly distributed.
Can the sun eliminate botox?
As there is not enough research as to if the amount of sun exposure effects the duration of how long botox lasts, it is still recommended to avoid sun exposure in order to prevent future wrinkles and lines. The sun damages the skin with the use of its rays, UVA and UVB in which it penetrates into the skin, damaging the elastin fibres in our skin causing saggy and wrinkled skin. Botox is an option to help smoothen out fine lines and wrinkles, although the more sun exposure causes more wrinkles and fine lines, and as a result more botox will be needed in order to help correct the area for a more youthful complexion. It is important to prevent sun damage with the use of SPF that should be applied daily every 2 hours in order to help reflect the UV rays from penetration into the skin, causing damage. Early ageing is caused by not protecting the skin from the sun, in which someone may start botox early as an option to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Will scratching eliminate botox?
Scratching will not eliminate botox as this is not a high enough factor that effects the product or its duration of how long the product will last. Scratching may affect the distribution, in which the prodyct will not be evenly spread out. As a result, it is important to avoid touching the face either by scratching, rubbing or pulling of the skin for the first 24-48 hours as the product needs to set.
Can exercise eliminate botox faster?
Exercise does have an effect on botox as this increases your metabolism, causing the product to be metabolized faster by dissolving the product faster. For someone who exercises at a high intensity rate may not hold the product as long because their body will dissolve the product faster as to someone who either doesn’t exercise. This does not mean that exercising needs to be stopped altogether, but that you may need more touch ups such as every 3-4 months in order to maintain results.
