Does Botox Prevent Wrinkles?
Usually, by the time people who live in The Woodlands begin to consider Botox as a means of stopping the progression of existing wrinkles they’ve already accumulated many years worth of lines on their faces. And, although Botox does temporarily improve the look of the wrinkles they already have, it can’t erase them. But today more and more young people are turning to Botox in their 20’s and 30’s to prevent wrinkles from ever developing in the first place.
Stopping New Wrinkles From Forming
People in The Woodlands get to choose whether or not they will go out in the sun without sunblock, or smoke cigarettes. They also have freedom of choice when it comes to what they to eat and drink as well as how much rest and exercise they get. Today young people are more aware than their parents and grandparents ever were about the harmful effects of unhealthy habits and can prevent unnecessary damage to the health of their skin. But what about our emotions? For every joyous moment of laughter, grimace or disappointing heartbreak, our facial muscles respond by contracting hundreds of times every day, and we wouldn’t want it any other way.
So how can Botox prevent faint lines laugh lines and crows feet from becoming deeply grooved furrows? And what about wrinkles that haven’t even had time to make a home on your face yet? Patients in The Woodlands that are in their 20’s and 30’s have plump, firm skin that we all associate with good health and youth. So by committing to Botox treatments early in life makes a lot of sense if you want to ward off future wrinkles. Preventative Botox can also save you from having to undergo more invasive and costly procedures, such as a facelift, down the line.
Starting Botox Treatments Later in Life
Those who weren’t fortunate enough to begin Botox injections early in life can still soften the look of their wrinkles. Botox may prevent the wrinkles that many men and women living in The Woodlands already have from progressing further by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause crows feet, frown lines, and other unattractive etched lines and creases. So it really is never too late to start Botox treatments.
No matter your age, to keep wrinkles at bay it’s important that you continue to come in for Botox maintenance treatments. Botox injections usually last between 3 to 4 months, after which the effects will begin to wear off, and the unwanted wrinkles will gradually start to reappear, or in the case of younger patients new ones may slowly show up. It is a good idea to make an appointment for your next Botox treatment with one of our staff after your painless and fast procedure has been completed that way you will be sure to stay on top of things.
