I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but let’s face it, wrinkles are inevitable. But what if I told you I had a secret that can help push the pause button on aging? It’s called preventative Botox, and it’s going to be your new best friend.
What is preventative Botox?
Botox is a medication called a neuromodulator that can help relax the muscles in our face that cause those pesky fine lines and wrinkles we don’t like. Preventative Botox is way to tackle those lines before they become permanently etched into our skin. The longer we wait to calm that muscle movement the more time we allow for that collagen breakdown to happen and the harder those areas can be to treat. Starting preventative Botox in your twenty’s the thirty’s can be your golden ticket to that fountain of youth.
How do I know when to start?
When you start seeing those expressive lines on your face even at rest, that is the perfect indicator that the time is now. Next to a good home care regimen for your skin, preventative Botox is another part of the building blocks that keep our skin healthy and slow down the aging process. I received my first Botox treatment at the age of 26, and I haven’t looked back since. This year I will be rolling into my 30s, but I feel my skin has only changed for the better in the last four years.
Is Botox permanent?
Like all medications, Botox is a medication that our body metabolizes. It can take up to 14 days to see the full effect of Botox and for most people it lasts around 3-4 months. So just like getting our car’s oil changed and fine-tuned, our skin also needs fine-tuning. But with that investment of fine-tuning comes lasting results that will keep you looking youthful and glowing.
Well now that the secret is out, what are you waiting for? It’s time to invest in yourself and in your skin. Because let’s be real here, the best wrinkle is the wrinkle you never get. And I have just the friend for you.
