Getting Botox? Here Are 3 Things You Can Do In Addition For Optimized Results

While getting Botox is an effective way to turn back the hands of time so to speak, you can enhance the effects of your treatment by using one or more of the following options:

Invest in Dermal Fillers

Whether synthetic or naturally derived, dermal fillers can be injected into various areas of the face to get rid of wrinkles and create a more youthful look. Unlike Botox, which limits muscle movement to reduce the look of wrinkles, dermal fillers are an actual material that's injected underneath the skin to plump and smooth it.

After getting Botox around your eyes and forehead, consider having dermal fillers injected into your lips to make them look fuller and into the jawline and cheeks to reduce fine lines. Dermal fillers can also be used to even out indents in your skin due to scars or severe acne. You may be able to schedule both your Botox and dermal filler treatments at the same time for an immediate dramatic change. Talk with a clinic that offers dermal fillers, like Stellis Health, for more information.

Get A New Hairstyle

To complement your facial work and make yourself look even younger, head to the hair salon for a cut and new style. There are a variety of fun hairstyles you can opt for that should infuse some youth into your overall look, such as the following:

  • An angled bob cut that's shorter at the jaw line and a bit longer in the back.  
  • A choppy, layered cut that frames the natural shape of your face.
  • A long multi-layered cut with wispy bangs that lay softly over the forehead.

Talk with your hairstylist about your specific goals so they can present you with photo ideas of styles they think would work well for your facial features and complexion.

Increase Your Water Consumption

Making sure that your body is well hydrated is one of the most important things you can do to keep your skin looking healthy and youthful. Drinking plenty of water throughout the day helps to flush toxins and impurities out of your body and cells, which in turn creates a healthy environment and makes your skin look smoother, suppler, and well hydrated overall.

Drink a full glass of water first thing in the morning, with your snacks, before each meal, and again before bed to ensure that you're always well hydrated. If you don't enjoy drinking plain water, try adding a slice of lemon or orange to it beforehand or keep a pitcher of water infused with fresh berries in the fridge for a sweet and refreshing flavor.
