How To Know It May Be Time To Revisit Your Provider
Even with the help of our calendars, phone notifications, and email reminders, sometimes we forget to schedule appointments. (No judgment, here. Life gets busy!) That said, if you’ve been treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) and love your results, you might be wondering how long those results last, and when to get back into your provider's office for your next treatment.
As you might already know, BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only treatment of its kind that’s FDA approved to temporarily lessen the appearance of moderate to severe forehead lines, frown lines, or crow’s feet lines in adults. Results are typically visible for four months (for moderate to severe frown lines), which means you must visit your provider on a regular basis to achieve your aesthetic goals. So, whether you get treated diligently throughout the year or have only tried BOTOX® Cosmetic once, allow us to review some indicators that will help you determine when you’re due for your next consultation. Read on for 5 signs it might be time to schedule your next BOTOX® Cosmetic consultation.
1. It's been 90+ days
First, check your calendar to see when your last BOTOX® Cosmetic appointment took place. Then, book a consultation that takes place at least 90 days from that date. BOTOX® Cosmetic results typically last four months for moderate to severe frown lines. At the 90-day mark (3 months), it might be time to see your Allē provider so you can get evaluated for another treatment.
2. Your pretreatment lines are returning
Take a look in the mirror. Have your forehead lines, frown lines, or crow’s feet lines returned to the way they looked before your last BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment? (Don’t fret! It’s normal.) Don’t forget, BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily improves the appearance of moderate to severe lines in the aforementioned areas. If this scenario sounds familiar, it’s time to schedule your next consultation. This way, you can still look like you, just with fewer lines.
3. You have Allē points to spend
As an Allē member, you might have racked up points on past treatments. Check your wallet and redeem them on your upcoming treatments! Upon checkout, just be sure to remind the office you’re an Allē member. Then, shave off some $$ by applying your Allē points to your BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment.
4. You have an upcoming event
Whether you’re celebrating a wedding, a work milestone, or Tuesday night out with friends, make sure you’re prepared. Get a BOTOX® Cosmetic consultation on the books ahead of your event so you have sufficient time for results to kick in. Keep in mind: while some results may show within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, it takes several weeks to see full results (so it’s best to book your visit accordingly)!
5. Your schedule is starting to book up
If you’re a busy individual, or coming up on an eventful season, it’s important to book your next BOTOX® Cosmetic appointment ASAP. Your provider’s schedules can fill up weeks (sometimes months) in advance so the sooner you call to set a date, the better chance you have to score a slot that fits your time preferences. Consistency is key to getting the results you want, so carving out a little time for these consultations can go a long way.
