Why Some Injectables May Not Last as Long Right Now

Feb 15, 2021 | Skin Care


Botox and dermal filler injectables are a non-surgical alternative to cosmetic surgery. They are great for smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles. If you have used injectables in the past, you know that their effects are only temporary, and eventually, you will need a maintenance treatment. However, there is now a trend throughout the industry, with clients finding their injectables wearing out sooner than they usually do. A very valid reason behind this trend appears to be stress!

It’s Been a Very Stressful Year

It has now been about a year since the COVID-19 pandemic hit the United States. Fear about contracting the virus, dealing with the loss or illness of loved ones, and social distancing has caused much stress for many people. Chronic stress can cause wrinkles to form, including crow’s feet, under-eye wrinkles, and frown lines, and make you look older and tired.

Stress affects our skin in many ways. It is known to accelerate the aging process and cause us to become a little lax with our normal healthy lifestyle habits. When we are under stress, we may not get enough sleep or stick to a healthy diet. This, of course, can cause you further stress.

Taking Steps to Reduce Stress

In these stressful times, it is important to remember to practice self-care. It is now even more important to follow a proper anti-aging skincare routine. A few small changes can make a major impact on your skin’s health and appearance. This will go a long way in helping to extend the results of your dermal injectables.

Now is time to pay attention to such things as:

  • Getting enough rest
  • Eating a healthy diet
  • Drinking plenty of water
  • Not smoking
