Just because facial aging is a part of life, it doesn’t mean we have to live with it. A treatment like Botox can help us defy facial aging and preserve our youthful appearance so we can look the way we feel. It would also help us if we could all understand facial aging better. Advanced Aesthetics would like to help, so we’re going to explain the causes of facial aging and how Botox can help. Keep reading to learn more.
What are the causes of facial aging?
Actually, there can be lots of different factors in facial aging, but some can be bigger factors than others. For example, aging in general is a major factor.
As we all age, our skin naturally loses its elasticity and becomes more fragile. This is due to a couple things. First, our skin tends to produce less natural oil, and this dries our skin and makes it look more wrinkled. Second, our skin loses fat in the deeper layers, which causes loose and saggy skin as well as more pronounced lines and crevices.
Another big factor in facial aging is exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light. This exposure can speed up the natural aging process of skin by breaking down the connective tissue in the deeper layer of the skin. Without enough of this tissue, our skin can lose strength and flexibility, which makes it sag and wrinkle.
There are some other significant factors in facial aging, like smoking and repeated facial expressions. These things can also affect your skin’s flexibility and elasticity.
How can I stop my face from aging?
Botox can help with the effects of facial aging, like wrinkles and fine lines. In this way, Botox helps with facial aging. With Botox, many patients say they have a much softer and more youthful appearance, and this is why people say Botox can take years off your face! It’s also why Botox is considered an anti-aging treatment.
An issue like repeated facial expressions may be prevented with Botox, and the effects of such an issue can be smoothened. This is because Botox reduces nerve impulses and muscle activity in a treated area, and this helps the area relax in order to prevent an issue like repeated expressions as well as soften and smoothen wrinkles and fine lines in the area. And since the effects of Botox can be long-lasting, those issues might not return for a long time! You can prolong your results with repeated Botox treatments.
Does Botox work on deep wrinkles?
Botox can work on fine lines as well as minor, moderate, and some deep wrinkles. Even though Botox may not get rid of the deepest wrinkles, it can still soften and smoothen them. And by stopping repeated facial expressions and helping the face relax, Botox can also help prevent other deep wrinkles.
Where can I get Botox on my face?
Botox is really versatile, so it can be used for frown lines, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet (wrinkles next to the eyes), and bunny lines (lines across the nose). You can get Botox in any of those areas. Consider having a consultation with us here at Advanced Aesthetics. During a consultation, we can help you figure out whether Botox would be right for you and which areas you could get treated.
