Not everyone’s skin ages the same way. Dry skin is known to develop fine lines more easily. There are also many other factors that can lead to the early development of fine lines:
• Not using sunscreen to guard the skin from damage by UV rays
• A drop in antioxidant levels in the body
• An increase in free radicals
• Wearing too much makeup and leaving makeup on while going to bed
• Use of harsh skin-care products
• Lack of sleep
Keeping your skin moisturized and establishing a good skin-care routine are good ways to slow down the occurrence of fine lines. With Botox, you can get rid of existing fine lines and wrinkles for a more youthful appearance.
If you have wondered how celebrities manage to look so young, remember that anyone can obtain that youthful radiance by choosing the right cosmetic procedure. Cosmetics procedures do not always have to involve surgery. Botox, for example, is popular for two main reasons: it is non-surgical and it really works.
Botox is a type of injection that is given in the areas where lines and wrinkles occur. The injected compound is composed of botulinum. Botulinum is a type of neurotoxin that is produced by a bacterium called Clostridium Botulinum.
How Does Botox Address Wrinkles?
There are millions of people who get Botox injections and the number is increasing year after year. This treatment has been proven to be extremely reliable for tackling fine lines and wrinkles like crow’s feet, the elevens, and horizontal forehead wrinkles.
One session of Botox requires only around fifteen to twenty minutes to perform. During this time, you are given tiny injections. The Botox affects the nerves responsible for the creation of the wrinkles. The neurotransmitter acetylcholine is blocked and thus the overcontraction of the muscles is stopped, allowing the muscles to relax.
Overcontraction of muscles results in the formation of lasting wrinkles in the long run. Botox helps in not just in erasing wrinkles but also in preventing them from occurring.
After your Botox treatment session, you’ll be able to return to your work and your everyday activities immediately. This procedure is extremely convenient and will not require any downtime.
The Results: What to Expect
Within a day or two, the initial effects of your Botox treatments can be seen, with full effects appearing in around seven to ten days. The duration for which Botox’s effects last is around three to four months, but it also depends on how well you care for your skin.
When the effects of your Botox treatments start fading, you can come back in for your next treatment session. It is observed that with subsequent Botox treatments, it takes longer and longer for wrinkles to return.
