How does Preventative Botox Work?
If you want to stay informed about how preventative Botox works, then you should know that Botox itself is a neurotoxin. It is derived from a bacterium known as Clostridium Botulinum. It is found in the soil, in forests and even in lakes. The powder is mixed with saline and it is then injected into the skin to eliminate wrinkles. Most people tend to wait until they start to see wrinkles before they think about seeking Botox treatment, but if you undergo preventative treatment sooner, then you may find that you can deal with any wrinkles before they emerge. If you inject the muscles that tend to cause wrinkles, then you can stop them before they appear.
Botox injections work by blocking the signals between nerves and muscle. This stops the muscle from contracting, essentially making your wrinkles soften and relax. Botox is normally used on forehead lines, crow’s feet and even frown lines. If you have sun damage, please note that Botox will not work on these types of wrinkles.
Slowing down the Signs of Aging
There isn’t one hard rule about when you should start to get Botox. After all, everyone ages differently. Some people start to get it in their late 30s and others get it in their 40s. if you can, you need to focus on your skin and the way that you feel about it. If you see fine lines now, then you may want to undergo Botox so that you can stop them from turning into full wrinkles. Botox tends to be approved for anyone who is over the age of 18 but it is not common to see people who are in their mid to late 20s to start experiencing fine lines.
Am I A Candidate for Botox?
There’s no hard rule to find out if you are a good candidate for Botox. Some wrinkles are genetic, so if you see lines that tend to mimic the older people in your family then now could be the time for you to start trying to do something about that. A doctor can tell you if you need Botox by looking at your facial wrinkles, and they can also help you to find out what steps you need to take to stop more noticeable wrinkles from appearing.
The great thing about getting Botox as an aging preventative is that it helps to keep your muscles weak. This means that you do not need to get as much as you get older. Your Botox will last longer, and you also won’t need as many treatments.
What Happens During the Treatment Process for Botox?
The process for Botox is super simple. After you have been approved as being a good candidate, you will soon find that the treatment process is short and efficient. You will have your face, or treatment area cleaned and then the areas that are to be improved will be injected, carefully, with a Botox solution. You will see the results 3-5 days after you receive the injection, and it will last for around 3-6 months. After this time, you can then revisit your Botox provider to get another injection done. You only need to have Botox done a few times a year, to get annual benefits and this is a very good way for you to make sure that you are boosting your confidence without breaking the bank.
