No one wants to get old. There is no one who looks at themselves in the mirror and sees a new wrinkle and is happy about it. However, everyone understands that the aging process is something that is inevitable. There’s nothing that can be done to completely stop the aging process. However, there are certain things that a person can do to change the rate at which they age either for the good or for the bad.
For example, if a person has a poor diet, misuses alcohol and uses tobacco products, they end up looking a lot older when compared to an individual who has a good diet, does not misuse alcohol and does not smoke.
Additionally, individuals who take advantage of non-invasive cosmetic procedures can keep themselves looking younger for a longer period of time. One of the most popular forms of non-invasive cosmetic procedures that are available on the market today is BOTOX®. This injectable has become so famous that the word is synonymous with youth, beauty and facial revitalization.
BOTOX® is an injectable that is designed to treat dynamic wrinkles. As the word implies, dynamic wrinkles are the ones that are caused by the actions or the movements of our face. So when a person expresses emotion, the muscles in their face move and this in turn creates wrinkles in the skin.
As a person ages and as their face begins to lose volume and their skin gets closer to their muscles, the wrinkles caused by the dynamic movements of the muscles become permanent. So BOTOX® relaxes certain facial muscles, and it interrupts the signals from facial nerves to facial muscles. So when a person smiles or when they frown, their facial muscles do not contract to the extent that they normally would. The result is that an individual is left with a smoother, wrinkle-free appearance on their forehead, around the sides of their mouth or around the sides of their eyes.
One of the nice things about BOTOX® is that because it is so popular, it has been well-tested. This product was approved by the FDA more than a decade ago for use as a cosmetic tool. Since then, millions of individuals have had treatments, and millions of individuals have had positive results.
BOTOX® can address dynamic wrinkles in a way that no other non-invasive procedure currently on the market can. It is a powerful tool for anyone to have in their anti-aging arsenal.
