There are many misconceptions about BOTOX® Cosmetic. The idea that it somehow speeds up the aging process is one of them. Here’s what actually happens.
BOTOX® Cosmetic doesn’t make you look older after it wears off. Your skin won’t wrinkle dramatically the moment you put your injections on hold. Instead, your muscle activity, skin condition, and lines will gradually return to what they were before your BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® treatment — accounting for any aging in the interval.
Let’s say you’ve been getting BOTOX® Cosmetic for 10 years. If you decide to stop, your skin will show the effects of that time. You won’t look the same as you did 10 years ago. You also won’t look any older than you naturally would.
Loss of BOTOX® Cosmetic Skin Benefits
You may find yourself missing the youth-boosting effects of your faithful injection appointments. However, BOTOX® Cosmetic offers lesser-known benefits that also fade as it wears off.
Regular treatments (every 3-4 months) with neuromodulators like BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport make your skin look healthier. They also give your skin a more even tone and texture. If you stop getting BOTOX®, you may notice a change in your overall complexion.
These treatments can even have a preventive effect. By modulating muscle activity early, you can prevent dynamic lines (lines when expressing oneself) from turning into static lines (lines at rest). If you stop getting preventative injections, you’ll still have the benefit of looking years younger than your age.
