Everyone says that aging is natural. But as you look at yourself in the mirror and see changes in your appearance, do they feel natural? Most people will comment that there is a disparity between the way that they feel and the way that they look. On the inside, they still feel young and full of energy. However, their facial appearance tells a different story. If this sounds like your experience, you can reclaim your youthful appearance with BOTOX®.
If you are starting to see some of the trademark signs of aging on your face, it’s likely that you are experiencing premature wrinkles. Wrinkles happen because your skin loses its elasticity and thickness as you get older. There are certain things that can accelerate the aging process, including a poor diet, excessive alcohol consumption, sun exposure, lack of sleep and smoking.
That said, even if you take care of your health and try to keep your skin looking its best, wrinkles still develop for everyone eventually. If you are bothered by the effects of aging, there’s something that you can do about it. BOTOX® could be right for you.
What Is BOTOX®?
If you’re reading this, it’s likely that you’ve at least heard of BOTOX®. As popular as it is, there are a lot of misconceptions about what it does. This injectable treatment is one of the fastest ways for you to remove the appearance of dynamic wrinkles on your forehead and around your eyes. The injection contains a protein that serves as a shield that blocks the signals from your brain to the nerves that control your facial muscles.
During your treatment, BOTOX® is injected into the muscles that are responsible for forming wrinkles like frown lines and crow’s feet. It takes a couple of days before results become apparent, but when they kick in, the targeted facial muscles will no longer contract as forcefully as they did before treatment. Results typically last about four months. Once your results begin to fade, you can come back for touch-up treatments as often as needed.
Can You Benefit from BOTOX®?
If you are unhappy with the way dynamic wrinkles are affecting your appearance, then you may be a great candidate for BOTOX® provided by the experts at All About Me Medical Spa. This treatment is often preferable over more invasive measures like cosmetic surgery, and it works better than topical creams, which lack the potency necessary to affect dynamic wrinkles.
