It’s no secret that Botox® has become one of the most popular treatments for fine lines and wrinkles. Botox® can do wonders for individuals who want smoother, more youthful-looking skin without surgery. If you are struggling to find a long-term solution to treat and prevent expression lines, Botox® may be the right treatment for you.

How Does Botox® Work?

Botox® is an FDA-approved injectable that contains botulinum toxin to treat and prevent fine lines and wrinkles. When a practitioner injects Botox® into a treatment area, it prevents the nerves from sending signals to the muscles. This process causes those muscles to become inactive, which smoothes and relaxes the face and prevents the formation of new expression lines.  

A common worry for patients when it comes to Botox® is the fear of a frozen expression or stiff-looking results. At Winter Park Plastic Surgery, you can rest assured that our excellent team will ensure you achieve natural-looking and relaxed results with Botox®.

What Not to Do After Botox®

Post-treatment care is essential to maintaining optimal results with Botox®. After Botox®, you should avoid touching and rubbing the face. Avoid applying pressure to the face, including facials, facial massages, and exfoliating scrubs, for at least 24 hours after treatment. 

Do not rest on the treatment area so you can allow the Botox® to settle into the muscles. Wait at least four hours after treatment to sleep. Some other precautions to take include:

  • Avoiding hot showers, baths, saunas, and other heated activities
  • Avoiding sun exposure and tanning beds
  • Refraining from drinking alcohol for as long as directed
  • Waiting to exercise for as long as directed

Is There Any Downtime With Botox®?

Botox® does not require any downtime, and you can return to your routine after your appointment. After your procedure, you may experience mild swelling or tenderness in the treatment area, but these side effects should dissipate quickly if you follow the instructions.

How Long Does Botox® Last?

Botox® is a popular choice for treating expression lines because the results are long-lasting. You can expect the results of Botox® to last three to four months or even six months in some cases. The longevity of your Botox® results will depend on your body’s metabolism and lifestyle factors. You can extend the results of Botox® by avoiding stress, excess alcohol, smoking, and wearing sunscreen diligently.
