There are many reasons why it’s hard to achieve perfect skin — from sun damage, pollution, genes, and, of course, aging.
Signs of aging, for instance, remain one of the top concerns of those in their 40s and later. For some people, this even starts in their late 20s or early 30s.
Fortunately, you can age without looking your age. Thanks to modern aesthetic medicine, cosmetic treatments such as Botox® can turn back the clock and take years off your appearance.
Curious how it works? Read on to find out.
What Is Botox®?
Botox® is considered as one of the most popular and well-known injectables that reduce wrinkles, particularly dynamic ones.
It’s a form of botulinum toxin developed by Allergan and it is known to temporarily:
• Relax facial muscles,
• Reduce the appearance of frown lines, and
• Soften the look of dynamic facial wrinkles like forehead lines and crow’s feet.
On top of these, Botox® is also used off-label to soften lip lines, chin wrinkles, neck bands, and the “bunny lines” on the bridge of the nose.
Advantages of Getting Botox® Treatments
There are many reasons why Botox® treatment is considered one of the leading anti-aging options out there.
Aside from being effective, it’s also quick and relatively painless compared to other invasive or surgical cosmetic procedures. The procedure itself takes minutes. However, the total duration would depend on the treatment area.
Contrary to some misconceptions, Botox® can provide natural-looking results in the hands of experienced providers.
In fact, this procedure has already been studied for more than 20 years. Since its existence, Botox® has been recommended by providers all over the world to patients who want to take years off their appearance.
Benefits of Botox®
To help you further understand how Botox® works to help you look younger, here are some of the benefits you can expect after the procedure:
Reduces Facial Lines
As mentioned earlier, Botox® is primarily targeted to dynamic wrinkles caused by repeated muscle movements through the years.
When injected into your skin, the neurotoxin found in a Botox® injection will temporarily relax your muscles, particularly those that cause wrinkles.
As a result, your skin becomes smoother and more youthful-looking.
Our overall look affects our confidence. It’s common to see people who are self-conscious because they’re insecure about aging skin.
Botox® can help those who wish to restore their confidence by making signs of aging less pronounced. By targeting skin insecurities brought on by aging, those who feel insecure will feel more confident in their appearance with fewer facial creases staring back in the mirror.
Lasts for Months at a Time
Botox® can leave you feeling refreshed, relaxed, and younger-looking for months. However, you can already see the full results from your first treatment by the end of the first month.
To achieve long-lasting results, you should get maintenance touch-ups every four months; This is also the best way to test how it makes you look and feel before you consider other future treatments to complement a Botox® procedure.
