Have wrinkles started to appear around your eyes and mouth? Have you noticed fine lines that weren’t there before? Are you freaking out? Then consider Botox. It’s highly effective at diminishing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. Beautyworldnews.com brings us the scoop.
Tic-Tock, Time for Botox!
Botox is a neurotoxin that works by attaching itself to nerve endings. Once this happens, the neurotransmitter responsible for triggering muscle contractions can’t be released, temporarily erasing dynamic wrinkles.
But before you get ready to head to a med spa, consider assessing where you are in your Botox timeline. The important question is: when is the right time to begin Botox? Earlier than you think. Most people think that you should start Botox when you’re middle-aged and obvious wrinkles are starting to crop up. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. Most dermatologists and plastic surgeons agree that people should begin a Botox regime when they’re in their mid-late 20s or early 30s before lines have truly started to form.
When used early on in the aging process, Botox not only treats wrinkles but also prevents new wrinkles from forming. Botox is most effective on wrinkles that haven’t quite set in, and it reduces the onset of wrinkles before they become moderate or severe. When a younger person uses Botox, they can literally prevent wrinkles from ever forming, and they can also train their face to resist certain expressions—such as excessive frowning–associated with dynamic wrinkles.
Prevention Is Half the Battle
If you’re looking for a preventative measure against aging, here’s how to do it: when you first begin Botox, you should start with a minimal application in just a few key areas on your face, such as your forehead or around your eyes. As you continue to age, you might want to consider other areas, such as around your mouth. As long as you continue receiving Botox injections, you’ll never develop deep wrinkles and worry lines. The bottom line? Botox works best as prevention, especially when combined with a good skincare regime and a healthy lifestyle, so don’t wait until it’s too late.
Before running off to receive Botox injections, be aware of Botox’s limitations. Botox can’t improve wrinkles that are due to aging, gravity, and sun-damage since they are unrelated to facial muscle contractions. That’s why it’s important to always wear a moisturizer with an SPF every day and avoid the sun at peak hours. Botox isn’t a substitute for a facelift or brow lift, and it doesn’t improve sagging skin. If you already have dynamic wrinkles, Botox is only a temporary solution. The effects of Botox last from three to six months. You’ll need to have injections about two to three times a year. However, the duration of treatment benefits increases over time so you should require Botox injections less frequently in the future. Also, Botox’s effects vary from person to person, and it might be less effective for those over 65 years old.
