What Happens if I Miss My BOTOX® Cosmetic Appointment?
To help prolong the rejuvenating effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic, many people schedule follow-up appointments for retreatment before the BOTOX® has completely worn off. A major benefit of getting regular BOTOX® injections is that in addition to smoothing dynamic facial wrinkles—such as crow’s feet and frown lines—the treatment actually helps to prevent creases from forming and getting deeper. In this fashion, BOTOX® Cosmetic truly prevents the signs of aging. Resting frown lines don’t worsen, and patients age more gracefully as their skin maintains a smooth and youthful appearance. Striving for this long-term rejuvenation, many patients choose to come into our med spa for repeat BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments every three months.
Scheduling BOTOX® treatments every three months is often ideal for helping a patient maintain the anti-aging results. If they cannot attend an appointment, however, they may be concerned about how this will affect their facial appearance. Patients who miss their BOTOX® Cosmetic follow-up appointment can expect their results to gradually wear off over the course of three to six months. Once BOTOX® injections have been metabolized and processed out of the body, they will start to see their facial lines and creases becoming more prominent again. If a patient has been receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic for years, however, these lines and wrinkles will still be less noticeable compared to if they had never undergone treatment in the first place.
During this COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic, Dr. Yarinsky and our team at Saratoga Springs Plastic Surgery, PC understand that many patients have had to postpone their appointments for treatments like cosmetic injectables. To help care for skin until injectable treatments can be performed again, Dr. Yarinsky recommends patients be diligent with their skin care routine. Our team offers professional-grade skin care products to help patients achieve and maintain healthy, beautiful skin. These product lines are available to order through our office.
