How Good Skincare Can Help To Enhance Your Botox Treatment
We all want that natural glow that says to the world that we are healthy and take good care of ourselves. “One of the most important aspects of looking good is having radiant and healthy-looking skin” explains Emily Johnston, PA-C. Investing in a Botox (or other neuromodulators) procedure helps you realize that a radiant rejuvenated skin can be a life-changing experience. Johnston notes, however, that “minimizing wrinkles is only part of the battle in achieving a youthful and refreshed appearance. You want to ensure that you maintain healthy-looking skin by incorporating a good skincare routine in your daily lifestyle.” A good skincare routine involves regular cleansing, detoxifying, hydrating, and wearing appropriate sun protection.
Below are two main reasons why proper skincare routine will give your botox procedure longevity:
Regular Cleansing and Treating
Cleansing your skin is not only a way of maintaining a healthy complexion but also keeping your procedure fresh and germ-free. Cleansing is recommended twice a day for healthy, radiant skin. “The use of antioxidants like Vitamin C and peptide-rich products help the skin fight free radicals that are highly damaging to the skin cells,” reports PA Johnston. Effective skin cleansers that have hyaluronic elements in them can be used during this skincare routine for added moisture. “One may also choose a cleanser with some mild chemical exfoliants such as glycolic acid for added cell turnover to brighten the skin” states Johnston. Pigment correctors can be added to improve overall skin tone. Using pigment correctors and antioxidants on damaged skin as part of a skincare routine yield even better results for skin that has been through anesthetic procedures.
Protecting Your Skin
Two added aspects to achieving radiant skin that cannot be ignored in a good skincare routine are water and sunscreen. Water and sunscreen are the holy grail of fabulous healthy-looking skin. Wearing sunscreen protects your skin from harmful UV rays that cause premature aging of the skin. “Sunscreen protection is necessary when with or without having done skin enhancement procedures,” cautions Emily Johnston PA-C. Hydrating by drinking plenty of water leaves your skin replenished, youthful, and supple.
