As much as we may want to stop the signs of aging, this is nearly impossible as it cannot be avoided. However, symptoms of aging, including skin laxity and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, can be addressed with certain cosmetic procedures. At Dermatology Consultants of Short Hills, patients in New Jersey can learn about ways to slow the gradual process of aging with preventative Botox injections.
How does preventative Botox work?
There are many muscles in the face which allow us to make common facial expressions. These muscles, however, can cause the formation of fine lines and wrinkles on the face with continued tension. With preventative Botox, these muscles can be injected with a medication that reduces the contraction of the muscles, thus reducing the development of these dynamic wrinkles and folds. Patients in their 30’s who are starting the process of aging will find that injecting the muscles with Botox can prevent these from forming and assist in maintaining a youthful look longer than those who do not consider preventative measures against aging skin.
Is Botox permanent?
Botox is a medication that typically works on addressing muscles for several months. After the medication has worn off, the wrinkles and folds will redevelop. When patients start Botox, they find the benefits of having touch-up injections done over time to keep the signs of aging from redeveloping earlier than normal.
Why choose Botox?
Botox has been used for decades in many different areas of medicine and continues to be a safe and reliable option for antiaging. Botox is FDA approved and can be used on many areas of the body. Patients find that Botox injections are also affordable and help delay the need for surgical interventions such as facelifts and browlifts.
