When Benjamin Franklin said, “nothing is certain except for death and taxes,” he forgot to mention crow’s feet. No matter how blessed you are in the genetics department, fine lines and wrinkles are something we all have to deal with as we age. Wouldn’t it be nice to rewind time and go back to the way your skin looked in your early twenties? Believe it or not, you can – with Botox® Treatments from Skinny Beach San Diego.
Nearly everyone has heard of Botox®, the cosmetic injections that smooth creases and lines by relaxing the facial muscles beneath. The treatment has become extremely popular in recent years. In fact, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported more than 7 million Botox® procedures in 2016. Here’s a closer look at the benefits of Botox® anti-aging injections.
What is Botox® and how does Botox® work?
Botox® is a non-invasive way to reverse the pesky signs of aging that make you look years older than you feel. The injection is derived from a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. That’s right, Botox® is technically a toxin that’s injected into your skin with a fine needle. This may sound sketchy or even dangerous, but Botox® is completely safe and has been approved by the FDA since 1991.
Botox® injections work by paralyzing tiny muscles in the face so they can’t contract. When a muscle can’t contract, it can’t pull on the overlying skin. This causes wrinkles to soften and relax, creating a more rested and youthful appearance. Botox® typically starts working in two to three days, and the results can last up to four months. There’s no surgery, no incisions, and minimal risk of discomfort.
What are the main benefits of Botox® anti-aging injections?
Botox® is non-invasive
First and foremost, Botox® is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment. This is a benefit in itself! At Skinny Beach, we’ve helped countless patients achieve a smooth, youthful complexion without the need for surgical enhancement.
Botox® can treat a drooping brow
A drooping brow is what causes you to look grumpy and exhausted even when you feel wide-awake and happy. Injections in the forehead relax the brow muscles and keep them lifted, making you look more youthful.
Botox® can smooth crow’s feet
Crow’s feet are caused by muscle movements that occur around your eyes when you laugh, smile, or squint. Botox® injections freeze these muscles so they can’t contract, thereby smoothing out associated lines and wrinkles.
Botox® can smooth frown lines
The vertical lines between your eyebrows make you look tense or angry even when you’re not. Botox® injections can reduce these frown lines to make you appear more refreshed and approachable.
Botox® can improve your skin
Not only does Botox® help prevent deep wrinkles from forming before they’re ingrained on your face, but it can also help the body heal existing wrinkles over time while improving the pliability and elasticity of your skin.
