Botox can help to smooth the wrinkles and fine lines in your face. This can make you look younger and have great looking skin. However, the botox that was injected into your face can wear off. If it is not retouched, these wrinkles and fine lines can reemerge. This may leave you wondering when you should have a botox retouch. Here are a few of the signs that it is time to have one done.
You Aren’t Happy With the Results
It takes 10 to 14 days after an injection for the full results of the botox to become apparent. However, the botox may not settle into the places you were hoping to treat as well as you would like. If you aren’t happy with the results after an injection, and have waited 10 to 14 days for the botox to settle, you can have a retouch done quickly to fill in the areas that may need more word done to them.
Your Wrinkles are Re-Emerging
One of the signs that it is time for a botox retouch is that your wrinkles begin to reemerge. It may take 10 to 14 days after the initial treatment for them to go away. However, once this happens, the botox should last for three to four months. Once the wrinkles start to come back, it is time to re-inject.
You Have More Muscle Movement
Botox can give you a frozen face sort of effect. You may feel some stiffness when you make facial expressions, due to the fillers in place. As the fillers wear off, you may feel less of this stiffness. This is another sign that it may be time to have a botox retouch done.
