3 reasons why your Botox isn’t lasting


Typically, Botox results should last about 4 months. (If you’re a regular, you can expect your results to last even longer, by several months.) But if you’ve noticed that your results aren’t even lasting half that expected time, there is a reason…and it might not be related to how much Botox you were injected with. It could be your body and lifestyle. Here are 3 reasons why your Botox might not be lasting as long as it should:

  1. Your body breaks it down faster. Some people have shorter lasting results because their body metabolizes the Botox faster. It’s not common, but it does happen.
  2. You’re a sun worshipper. You already know that sun exposure accelerates the aging process of your skin. It causes wrinkles to develop faster. But did you know that UV rays may also speed up the breakdown of Botox in your body? While this is based more on anecdotal evidence, you might notice that your results don’t last as long in the summer, when the sun’s rays are at their strongest. Or, you may notice your wrinkles returning after a few sessions at the tanning salon. Either way, you might have to blame it on UV.
  3. UV radiation triggers the breakdown of collagen, which eventually leads to lines and wrinkles. So, even though Botox was able to erase the wrinkles you wanted to get rid of at the time of your treatment, new ones may have appeared since that time, all because you didn’t practice safe sunning!
