How long do Anti-Wrinkle Injections last?

As we age, the elasticity in our skin reduces significantly, especially during our 30s and 40s. Luckily, anti-ageing treatments like anti-wrinkle injections, also known as Botox, are highly effective and pain-free to improve skin laxity and maintain a youthful appearance.

The question is, exactly how long do anti-wrinkle injections last and what can be done to maintain results for longer?

Below, our treatment specialists outline how long you can expect your anti-wrinkle results to last and the steps you can take to ensure your time between top-ups is as long as possible.

How long do Anti-Wrinkle Injections last?

Unfortunately, as everyone is different, and results are dependent on the individual, providing a once-size-fits all timeline can be difficult. For this reason, having a consultation before your treatment is required to determine your individual circumstances and provide a more accurate timeline.

Other than your metabolism and lifestyle, things that impact the length of results can include the type of injectable solution used and the areas you plan to have treated.

With that said, first-timers can expect results to last anywhere between 3-6 months before requiring a top-up. To improve the longevity of your results we recommend booking top-up treatments in advance to maintain your results.

Top-up injections will be necessary three or four times per year, depending on the factors impacting the results listed above. We offer a course of treatment for those that expect to have return visits to maintain a consistently youthful appearance throughout the year.

What can I do to make results last longer?

One of the main questions our clients have regarding Anti-Wrinkle and Botox Injections is what can be done to ensure that results last as long as they possibly can. As previously mentioned, each body is unique and the length of your results depends on a variety of factors, however there are definitely some tips that can prevent you from shortening the duration of your anti-ageing results.

Below are some of our recommendations for helping you to maximise the results of your treatment.

Choose an experienced practitioner

Having an experienced and qualified injectable specialist perform your treatment will ensure that you are receiving the best possible results. Not only will they be able to provide a professional and accurate recommendation on what type of treatment would be best for your anti-ageing goals, their experience will provide peace of mind that your treatment is performed with precision.

Follow the aftercare provided by your practioner

Following your treatment, your practitioner is expected to provide adequate aftercare guidelines to help you maximise your results. Please read our Aftercare guide for Anti-Wrinkle Injections for a summary of what to expect following your treatment. 

Develop the right skincare routine for your skin

An essential part of enhancing your results is to look after your skin. This can be achieved by maintaining a skincare routine that is right for you and your skin. We recommend using high-quality skincare products, such as moisturisers and SPF to protect and hydrate your skin. You should also avoid things that may damage the skin such as smoking, and fatty foods, which can contribute greatly to premature ageing.

Consider top-up treatments

One way to guarantee that your results are kept for more extended periods of time would be to book regular top ups. We would recommend every 3 to 6 months following your treatment, however your practitioner will be able to advise you on a more accurate timeline.
