Put Botox to Work for You
Botox injections are incredibly popular among men and women. The impression that some people may have is that, like facelift surgery, Botox is for people “of a certain age.” Nonsense! It doesn’t matter if you are in your 20s or in your 60s, there may be a great opportunity to put Botox to work for you.
Slow your Roll
One of the best times to start getting Botox treatment is before the onset of fine lines and wrinkles. This “wonder drug” is designed to ease the pull on surface skin by relaxing muscles. The creases that are caused by muscle movement are initially referred to as dynamic wrinkles. That is because they usually disappear when the face is relaxed. Think about how the skin around your eyes crinkles when you smile, but smoothes when you don’t. When Botox is used preemptively, collagen is less disrupted in those areas of movement.
We can’t stop time, and therefore cannot stop the aging process. What we can do, though, is reverse many of the signs of aging with appropriate treatments. Botox has been said to take about 10 years off the face once lines and wrinkles have become the norm. Remember, too, that Botox is also a wonderful solution for that falling brow line!
Enjoying the Benefits
There are several reasons why patients of our Layton, Bountiful, and Draper locations love Botox. Treatment is convenient and comfortable. Because we are familiar with the anatomy of the face, and take care to use injectables strategically, there is no worry that the face will look “frozen” after the effects of Botox peak at the one-week mark. Furthermore, many people notice that, as they continue to address their lines and wrinkles with this cosmetic treatment, their skin stays more youthful for longer stretches of time. Naturally, the body metabolizes injectables like Botox and dermal fillers over the course of 3 to 6 months.
