Causes Covid Vaccine Has On Botox


Read on and discover alternatives for combatting fine lines and wrinkles.  

There may be a surprise explanation if you frequently receive neuromodulator treatments (like Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin) and discover they appear a little less effective, don’t last quite as long, or need more frequent touch-ups. Injections of neuromodulators may be less effective in those who have received the COVID-19 vaccine, according to a recent study. But before we continue, we must emphasize the following: This does not negate the need for a booster or vaccination. Please keep in mind that the study was modest in size, the majority of people will probably still find an efficient neuromodulator, and wrinkles are generally preferable to serious illness or death – even though we may not always feel that way looking in the mirror. We will address the concerns raised by these findings and provide some alternative options to help ease your worries and those worry lines!


Of the 45 participants in this study, about 90% were women and the average age was 48.3. To summarize the findings, the average amount of time between Botox injections was found to be shorter after receiving a COVID vaccination than before (96 days as opposed to 118, or roughly three and a half as opposed to four months), which led researchers to speculate that Botox “might be less effective after COVID-19 vaccination.”

While more research is needed to determine the true effect of COVID-19 illness and vaccinations on your Botox and Xeomin treatments, Taut Haute’s beauty experts have you covered either way. Here are some alternative options to keep you looking your best.

Try a New Neuromodulator or Alternate

Even before the pandemic and COVID vaccines, some patients found that they built a tolerance or resistance to a specific product after prolonged use. Alternating between products has been a relatively common practice in aesthetics for a while and Taut Haute offers Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport – giving you plenty of options and potential when it comes to wrinkle relaxers.


Sculptra as a long-term solution to fine lines and overall volume loss. When Sculptra is injected into wrinkles, lines, creases, and areas of volume loss, initial results can be seen in 1 month with final results at 6 months. However, unlike hyaluronic acid-based fillers, Sculptra stimulates your own synthesis of collagen, resulting in natural, beautiful results that continue to improve over time. Sculptra is made of Poly-L-lactic acid, a man-made polymer that the body gradually absorbs, promoting new collagen cell formation. The primary cause of visible aging is collagen loss. We love working with Sculptra because rather than having to start over with fresh injections each time traditional filler dissolves, Sculptra treatments gradually replenish the body’s collagen and restore facial volume, smoothing creases and folds for lasting results for up to 2 years. As an added bonus, Sculptra can be used anywhere on the body to plump, smooth, and restore

SkinPen Microneedling

Regular SkinPen treatments to smooth and improve overall skin appearance. Microneedling treatments involve creating controlled micro-injuries to the skin. When the body perceives these injuries, the healing response is stimulated, bringing with it, younger and more rejuvenated skin from the inside out. When our skin is injured the immune system is triggered to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, stimulate blood flow, and create new tissue. As the skin works to repair itself, new cells and collagen proteins are created, as well as a new network of blood vessels. The micro-injuries are then replaced with new tissues, rich in collagen and elastin, resulting in more youthful skin, reduced lines, and wrinkles, as well as improved tone and texture. As an added bonus, a variety of serums and products can be infused into the microchannels created during the treatment to boost results. SkinPen treatments involve little to no downtime and are proven safe and effective for all skin types.

Platelet Rich Plasma(PRP)

Natural Biostimulation with Platelet Rich Plasma(PRP). Did you know that your own blood could be beneficial in reversing the signs of aging? Blood is composed of many different components – blood cells, plasma, and platelets. Platelets contain growth factors that help your body heal itself. During the treatment, a small blood sample is drawn and placed in a centrifuge, isolating and concentrating the plasma (liquid portion of the blood) and platelets – making PRP. The PRP is then injected back into the skin, restructuring and repairing damaged areas, leaving your skin looking and feeling healthier and rejuvenated.

PDO Threads

PDO Threads for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles and collagen stimulation. PDO threads are absorbable sutures made from Polydioxanone (PDO). PDO has been used in open-heart surgeries for many years, and the aesthetic community has begun recognizing its many benefits in recent years. There are several different types of threads, offering a variety of rejuvenating results. Smooth threads can tighten the skin and improve texture and even add definition to areas like the lip border. Mesh threads can even be combined with filler and neuromodulators to improve fine lines and  wrinkles and areas of lost volume like the forehead, jawline, lower face, and neck. Threads are a wonderful addition to neuromodulators and filler because they stimulate collagen areas for lasting and buildable results.

SkinBetter Science & Epicutis

Using Epicutis combined with Skinbetter Science medical grade skincare products at home. Any treatment that you receive is only as good as the way you care for your skin on a daily basis. At Taut Haute we carry a variety of high quality and effective skincare products. InterFuse Lines is one of our favorite SkinBetter Science products to go home with after filler and toxin. The Skinbetter line was created through decades of research and advanced chemistry and doesn’t require an overly tedious regimen or an endless list of products to achieve incredible results.

Any of these options can help reduce unwanted fine lines and wrinkles. Even better, each of these treatments can be used in conjunction or combination with each other for even better results. So whether your Botox is wearing off faster or not, you can still have the smooth, youthful skin of your dreams, and our team of experts at Taut Haute are happy to help you achieve it!
