Many people have realized by now that Botox and other neuromodulators can make them look younger. But what happens when Botox wears off? Will it cause you to look older?
From a medical point of view, once the effects of Botox wear off, your face will NOT look older. Actually the opposite happens with certainty.
Botox injections help you get rid of some of the unwanted wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, chin etc…. Once Botox wears off, wrinkles begin to reappear again and do not become worse after the treatment. However, since you have become used to smoother skin and a youthful appearance, it might come as a shock when the Botox wears off.
Botox relaxes the point where the nerves are attached to the muscles making the muscle enter a relaxed state for an extended period of time. After a few months, the body starts washing off the Botox and the nerve endings are able to stimulate the muscles again. The muscle will contract easily causing the wrinkles to slowly reappear again.
But the good news is, if you keep getting your Botox on schedule, the muscle will get weaker and weaker. Resulting in the need for less Botox in the future. Years of Botox use may mean you’ll need less and less for maintenance over time.
