Addicted to Botox and Restylane

too much botox
“You gotta know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em, know when to walk away…”

So goes the famous song, “The Gambler” by Kenny Rogers. It sounds simple enough but in real life, temperance is one of the hardest virtues to practice.

The advent of Botox, Restylane and other cosmetic injectables has become a boon to patients and cosmetic providers alike. The benefits of instant gratification, affordability and non-invasiveness make cosmetic injections a very attractive option to patients seeking to enhance their physical appearances in a matter of a few minutes. A droplet of Restylane injected here and voila! under eye bags are evened out. A touch of Botox there and ba da bing! the corners of your mouth are lifted. Indeed, cosmetic injections perform little magic tricks that are instantly accessible – sometimes too accessible.

It’s easy to see how adding a little here and lifting a little there can become something of an obsession. In the quest for physical perfection, self-perception can become skewed and before they know it, some patients become addicted to cosmetic injections.


Done judiciously and under the prudent eye of a skillful doctor, the right balance of injections can erase years from your face. Overindulge, and you could easily run into the danger of getting “Poor thing, what did she do to her face?” whispers behind your back.

How do you know if you’ve become too obsessed with getting dermal injections? According to the experts, your spouse and your BFF, you may be addicted to Botox and cosmetic injections if :

• You spend thousands of dollars on new and follow up cosmetic procedures every few months.

• You ask for injections in multiple parts of your face at each appointment.

• You have more than one doctor performing injections in the same areas of your face.

You seek another doctor if your doctor advises you against more treatments.

too much botoxIf one or more of the above applies to you, it’s time to rethink the frequency and quantity of your injection treatments. The following timeline for reinjections is recommended to maintain a young, yet normal appearance:

• For neurotoxins like Botox and Dysport – 3 to 4 months

• For hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm, Perlane and Restylane – 6 to 12 months

• For collagen-stimulating fillers like Radiesse and Sculptra – 1+ year

The quest for youth and perfect skin can quickly become an aesthetic addiction but moderation is the key to maintaining a natural look when using dermal fillers and neurotoxins.

Also, trust your doctor’s opinion and follow the schedule you set with him for follow-up treatments. If your doctor tells you that you don’t need another Botox injection or more filler, listen to him. If you still feel compulsive about getting more injections, call your BFF for a harsh but much-needed “heart to heart” evaluation from her. Hopefully, you trust her and her judgement.
