If you buy a new car, you protect your investment through proper maintenance and tlc. Think of your Botox Cosmetic treatments as an investment in your appearance. You are spending good money on the wrinkle-reducing toxin, so why not get the most out of your injections?
2. Pair your Botox with Facial Fillers.
Botox Cosmetic works on dynamic wrinkles, or those caused by respective muscle movement, such as forehead creases. As the muscles are temporarily paralyzed, the wrinkles are eliminated. Facial Fillers work to create facial volume and plump the skin. Fillers will address static wrinkles, or those caused by sagging, lax facial tissues. When used as a duo, Botox and Fillers can provide a lifted, contoured, youthful appearance – and still take less than 30 minutes to perform.
3. Pay for it by the unit.
You may not have thought about the billing method for your Botox injections, but you need to ask. There is more than one way that Botox Cosmetic can be billed. Some physicians change by the syringe, while others by the unit (the number of CCs injected). Think about this: if the doctor is billing by the syringe, you are being charged for all of the Botox that fits in the container. This is probably more than you will actually use. The rest goes in the trash. Dr. Vitenas charges by the unit that is injected under the skin. The Frown line requires 3 units to relax and smooth; therefor you will be billed for only 3 units of product.
3. Eliminate the root cause of your wrinkles.
It is not always possible to stop facial lines from forming (that is why we come in for Botox Cosmetic, right?). Certain triggers can be eliminated, however, such as sun exposure and smoking. The UV rays are devastating to the skin. The more sun you get, the worse the wrinkles will be. Smoking causes fine lines to appear around the lips and the eyes, as well as makes the skin. By removing the cause of facial lines, your appearance will not continue to decline as rapidly. So, let Botox Cosmetic do its job every 4 months, and you do yours everyday.
