Botox injections are a popular treatment when it comes to combating the signs of aging. It is especially good for tackling deeper, more prominent wrinkles that facials themselves can not smooth out alone. While you might think that Botox injections change your usual facial routine, as long as you follow your provider’s advice, you can continue to enjoy facials both before and after getting botox injections.
Many aestheticians recommended getting a professional routine facial to improve circulation and reinvigorate skin. Botox can likewise give skin a smoother and more youthful look that can improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles allowing your skin to look healthier and brighter.
While facials should be done on a monthly basis, botox injections are typically done every three to four months until muscles begin to hold their new positions. After this, you should be able to go longer between treatments before your face starts to return to its natural state.
When facials and Botox are used together, you can expect more vitalized skin that you’ll feel proud to show off. This being said, there are some considerations to keep in mind before booking a facial after Botox injections.
Before booking your next facial it is important to keep in mind that doctors recommend not touching or messaging your face within the first couple hours after treatment. This can cause the Botox to shift positon under the skin and affect areas that you don’t want it to. Though rare, it’s advised to keep touching to a minimum within the first 24 hours to ensure this doesn’t occur.
Gentle facial treatments can usually be undergone within the days following your Botox treatment. More aggressive facial treatments like microdermabrasion, however, should be put on hold for at least a week after receiving Botox injections.
The best facial care can come from a combination of both facial treatments and botox injections. Many med spas will offer both services allowing you to stay up to date at the same location without worrying about miscommunications or scheduling issues. Receiving both Botox and facials can help you achieve a smoother and more youthful-looking face, provided you wait the appropriate amount of time and listen to your provider’s advice.
