While admiring your reflection in the mirror have you wondered why all the wrinkles and fine lines have taken over its place in your face despite your love and care for your lovely skin? As you grow older, there is a lot of change that you should go through whether you like it or not. Sometimes you might like the change but most of the time it might end up burdening you with dissatisfaction and low self-esteem.
As you age, few things are definitely guaranteed and they are something that you cannot escape from, wrinkles are one of them. You must be wondering why this happens, the truth is your skin starts producing less elastin and collagen giving away a less youthful appearance or skin. Elastin protein present in the skin gives the stretching function and plasticity, while the collagen protein grasps the skin tight. Research shows that people involved in several other habits such as smoking, consuming more sugar, improper diet, vigorous exercise, and excessive alcohol ingestion over time, immoderate sun exposure, and chronic lack of sleep are prone to find wrinkles at an early age.
Repeated facial expressions can result in the formation of wrinkles. You might be a person who lifts your eyebrow in doubt or disagreement always allowing the formation of tiny lines above the eyebrows, similarly, you may be a squinter, squinting your eyes to the sun, or you smile with your eyes. Such expressions will cause deep wrinkles at the side of the eyes called the crow’s feet. Any repeated expressions such as laughing, frowning, smiling, squinting, etc can cause the collagen not to function also affecting the elasticity of the skin. If you are planning to get rid of the wrinkles and the fine lines maybe you shouldn’t stop expressing but choose Botox, the most popular non-surgical treatment to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines over your face.
This is an aesthetic treatment popular among many today. Anyone in their mid-to-late 20’s or early-mid-late 30’s are best suited to take up the treatment. In this treatment, a toxin named botox toxin is injected into the facial muscles that cause wrinkles or fine lines on your face. This toxin is injected in a small quantity to stop the signals that go from the muscles to the nerve cells by stopping the muscles from contracting. This further helps in wiping out the appearance of wrinkles. The treatment should be administered by experts or certified dermatologists and cosmetologists to stay safe and receive the best results. Choosing a certified and reputed clinic is also important to be on a safer side.
The injections should be administered properly to avoid several side effects. The treatment is effective as the result lasts for several months, with no downtime. If you are wondering about its cost and the time you should spend on this treatment despite your busy schedule, you need to stop worrying as this treatment is cost-effective and can be administered within a few minutes.
So express more and never worry about wrinkles.
