How to prolong the life of your treatment…

The following information will help reduce the triggers that can cause premature ageing.


  1. Always wear a sun protection factor, the sun breaks down the supportive structure of the skin, it causes pigmentation and fine lines. Use a minimum factor 15 (SPF) daily even in the winter and cloudy days. The UV rays will still affect the skin.
  2. Protect against free radical damage. Free radicals attack your collagen and elastin fibres that make up the structure of the skin. They around us everyday a daily dose of vitamins and antioxidant supplement will minimise this damage.
  3. Avoid caffeine, alcohol and smoking, these all dehydrate the skin and increase the free radical attacks.
  4. Try to relax as much as possible, stress will break down the treatment quicker as your muscles will be tense and fighting against the Botox. Take time to treat your self.
