The dreaded over Botoxed problem!

I had a Botox treatment a week ago and I really don''t like it... Is there a way to make it go away faster and how long is it going to take to wear off?

One of my pet peeves is over Botoxing.  It seems to me that many injectors really have a heavy hand and often less is better!  Sometimes much less!

In your situation, you just have let the Botox wear off – usually about 3 months that first time.  Botox lasts longer generally, the more it’s done and many of our patients come every five to six months.  The goal, in my opinion, is a relaxed, rested look.  And, to get rid of wrinkles but not movement. For more information see my article on Botox Mistakes & How to Fix Them.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
