The Longevity of Toxin – 7 Factors
Currently, there are 4 types of Neuromodulators or Botox-like products out there on the market; Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau. Each product generally last between 2 to 4 months in duration. Dr. Rajani discusses how long Botox actually lasts and shares 7 factors that determine the longevity of your results:
- Dose – The more toxin you use overtime, the more longevity in general. However, it doesn’t necessarily always mean a longer lasting result and other factors should be taken into consideration.
- Individual Uniqueness – Every individual responds to toxins in a very unique way. It is important to work with your injector to determine which neuromodulator will works best to help achieve the results you want.
- Age– As we age, collagen production declines and skin begins to thin. Collagen is what gives our skin volume, making our skin looking plump and keeping lines at bay.
- Technique– Your injector will work to carefully place product into affected muscles to maximizes its usage and come up with a unique treatment plan to determine the best dosages for your individualized aesthetic goals.
- Self Awareness– A great treatment will show a reduction in movement of the muscles by 80%.
- Skin Type– Thin white skin without estrogen or hormones, Botox wont last as long because some movement will potentially create lines and fold. Individuals with darker skin types naturally form less lines.
- Commitment– Taking good care of your skin is a lifelong commitment. Engaging in collagen building treatments such as Microneedling, Plasmaglo, Radiofrequency, even Sculptra will help to make the skin more robust and stronger. And in turn, less Botox will be needed overtime.
