Botox is a reliable and effective cosmetic inject-able given by a cosmetic surgeon, dermatologists, and medical spas. It is an anti-aging non-surgical procedure that involves injecting a diluted version of botulinum toxin into muscles on the face. Like other anti-aging non-surgical treatments, Botox is painless and anesthesia is not used. Botox lasts around 3-4 months, but you can continue the effectiveness of your treatments. Our Botox specialists in West Palm Beach, FL give you some anti-aging tips.
Use Botox Treatment Combined with Dermal Fillers:
If you are interested in anti-aging treatment, you should ask your doctor to combine dermal fillers with Botox treatment. Dermal fillers like Juvederm, Radiesse, and Restylane, are collagen stimulants. They cause your body to increase its collagen production, making your skin look smoother, fuller, and minimizing lines and wrinkles. Botox injections temporarily paralyze facial muscles, preventing them from the excessive muscle movement that causes wrinkles. Botox can prolong the effectiveness of dermal fillers by preventing facial movements and allowing the skin to have more time to produce collagen.
Don’t Smoke Ever:
Smoking can produce free radicals, those nasty little oxygen molecules that become overactive and unstable. Free radicals damage your healthy cells, leading to premature wrinkling, and a whole list of potentially life-shortening conditions. Cutting back to a little nicotine helps but not as much as you might think. Any amount of nicotine can have a negative impact on your health and longevity.
Use High-Quality Skin Care Products:
Taking excellent care of your skin is the easiest way to maintain the results of Botox treatments and other cosmetic injectables, like dermal fillers. It can be hard to find drugstore skin care products that do what they claim, and they’re often a waste of your money. If you spend just a little more, you can purchase medical grade skin care products from your medical spa. You should wear sunscreen with a high SPF every day, as well as a high-quality moisturizer. You should also clean your face twice a day with a cleanser that balances your skin’s pH while it exfoliates and extracts impurities.
Avoid Pollution and Sun Rays:
Ultraviolet (UV) rays cause harm to the fibers in your skin that provides it a plump, cherub-like texture and tone. The breakdown of elastin fibers causes drooping and reduces the resiliency that young, healthy skin has. The skin also bruises more simply, and with extra thinning, might take longer to heal. Moreover, discoloration and brown spot (also referred to as age spots) can show up from prolonged sun exposure without adequate protection. The consequences of sun and pollution on your aging complexion are additive, so they may not show up until later in life.
Although the occasional Cabernet may deliver some much-needed resveratrol, drinking the whole bottle in one sitting won’t serve you well over time. Alcohol, like caffeine, is especially dehydrating. An excessive amount of liquor will contribute to other health conditions, like cirrhosis of the liver, dry skin, inflammation, and a dull, grayish tone to your complexion.
Follow Your Doctor’s Post-Treatment Advice:
Your doctor will give you very specific post-treatment advice, and you should follow it to the letter to ensure that your Botox results last as long as possible. He will advise you to avoid lying down, excessive facial movements, and extreme physical activity for at least 3 hours after your treatment.
