Fortunately, there are non-surgical cosmetic treatments that can stop the clock or even turn back time, rejuvenating your skin. Though there are many anti-aging treatments on the market, the most popular treatment in the country is Botox®.
How Botox® Rejuvenates Skin and Fights Wrinkles
When you make facial expressions, small muscles all over your face tighten to show what you are feeling or thinking. After years and years of making these same expressions, they can begin to create wrinkles in your forehead, around your eyes and around your lips.
That’s where Botox® comes in. Botox® contains a substance (botulinum toxin) that blocks nerve signals to the small muscles in your forehead or around your eyes. When you start to make an expression, your nerves send a signal to your muscles to move--but it doesn’t get there. That means your muscles stay relaxed and no wrinkles appear.
You only need small, safe amounts of Botox® to achieve this effect. In fact, Botox® is so effective at rejuvenating skin, it may actually work to prevent wrinkles from getting deeper. Many people in their 20s or 30s use Botox® regularly to keep muscles relaxed and stop aging before it starts.
New Research on Botox® Rejuvenation Reveals More Benefits
In addition to the effects listed above, new research suggests that Botox® may also improve skin elasticity. A study of 48 women who received Botox® around their eyes found that repeated injections increased their skin elasticity, a vital part of what makes skin look young and fresh.
While it’s not clear why women saw these benefits, it is possible that Botox® triggers the body’s natural healing processes. In reaction to the injections, the body may create more elastin and collagen, two proteins that help skin move elastically and look young. Other researchers believe it may be that Botox® gives the face a chance to relax and produce more collagen as it would if it had time to rest.
No matter the cause, you can experience all the benefits of Botox® for about four months after your injections. Repeated appointments help you maintain your results and may help prevent wrinkles from getting deeper or more noticeable.
When administered by a trained and certified professional, Botox® provides a safe and effective way to rejuvenate your skin and stop aging. Millions of people have used Botox® to rejuvenate their skin, look younger and feel more confident in themselves at work and in relationships.
