HOW ABOUT A LIFESTYLE OVERHAUL AFTER GETTING INJECTABLES

According to recent figures by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Americans spent nearly 2.5 billion dollars on injectables alone last year. Of all the injectables available today, Botox reigned supreme in 2013, up 15 percent from 2012.

At Lumier Medical, we have noticed that men and women who visit us because they want to have Botox don’t realize the importance of making a commitment to change their lifestyle after having an injection. An excellent example of this would be the 50-year-old woman who made an appointment to have Botox injections but had no idea about how her chain smoking is actually accelerating the facial aging process.

Aside from smoking, sun exposure is another frequently overlooked factor that influences premature aging and the appearance of wrinkles, folds, and fine lines. If you recently had fillers yet you’re not making an effort to wear sunscreen, the results of your fillers will be shortened.

The ill effects of alcohol, smoking, sun exposure, and an unhealthy diet are no secret. We often remind our patients who are considering injectables and other non-surgical cosmetic treatments that they might also consider a lifestyle overhaul to maintain or prolong the positive results of their chosen cosmetic treatments.
