What makes you look old?
A number of different factors can make your face look older than you really are, including:
- Fine lines
- Sun damage
- Sagging skin
- Lost fat volume in the cheeks
These signs of aging can appear any time, even as young as your 20s depending on your genetics, sun exposure, smoking, and other factors.
Wrinkles form because you have made the same expression, like a smile or frown, millions of times throughout your life. Eventually, as skin ages and loses elasticity, the places where your skin folds or bunches becomes permanently marked with a wrinkle.
How can BOTOX® help you look younger?
BOTOX® can help smooth fine lines and wrinkles in your forehead and around your eyes. The injection blocks nerve signals in the muscles of your face. This causes the muscles to relax when you make expressions, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Though the muscles are more relaxed, you’ll still be able to make all the same expressions as you did before.
Without wrinkles and fine lines, you have a smoother, younger-looking appearance automatically. You can combine BOTOX® with other treatments, such as Juvederm, to take even more years off your appearance by addressing sagging skin or lost fat volume.
You can even use BOTOX® to delay wrinkles. By starting treating in your early 30s, you may be able to prevent lines from forming between your eyebrows. When muscles stay relaxed, they can’t cause the skin to fold and wrinkle over time.
