What happens if I stop having further treatments?


Some patients worry about what happens if they stop having their treatment.

There are a lot of misinformation and myths about aesthetic treatments out there, but to put it simply nothing will happen.

The effects of the treatment will wear off.

Your skin will return to its natural state. If you were having anti-wrinkle injections such as Botox, your muscles may start to contract again, which could lead to wrinkles. Botox injections take around 3-4 months to wear off after which you'll notice facial muscle movements return.

If you were having filler treatments, the treated areas will gradually lose fullness and volume and return to their pre-treatment size. Dermal fillers can take anywhere from 6-18 months or even longer to disappear.

Here are some additional things to consider when deciding whether or not to stop aesthetic treatments:

  • Your budget: before starting any aesthetic treatment it is important to have a complete and thorough consultation to explore your expectations and have the treatments explained to you. Aesthetic treatments can be expensive so anyone on a budget needs to be made aware that these treatments require topping up in order to avoid disappointment in your results.

  • Your expectations: it is important to be realistic about what aesthetic treatments can achieve. They cannot stop the ageing process, but can help to improve your appearance.

Ultimately the decision whether to stop or not to stop having aesthetic treatment is a personal one.​
