3 Reasons Botox is Mr. Right for Your Wrinkles
By Kaitlyn Lovett, FNP & MedSpa Expert
The secret is out (has been since 2002): Botox makes lines and wrinkles vanish. Celebrities were the first to flaunt the turned-back-time look, but Botox’s fame has become mainstream as more people understand its benefits.
For example, if you’re an expressive person, you’ve probably noticed wrinkles increasing on your forehead over the years. Why does this happen? Because you have muscles in your face that move each time you smile, raise your eyebrows, frown, etc.
This is where Botox steps in. Licensed providers can inject Botox into these wrinkled areas to soften the lines created by your facial muscles. When injected correctly, the muscles will still be able to move properly for every expression; the lines in that expression are just softened. (The horror stories you hear about celebrities with “frozen faces” happen because they desire too much Botox, and the muscles are unable to move properly.)
So why is Botox Mr. Right?
1. Botox prevents future lines from forming.
You’ll never guess the average age for starting Botox. Are you ready for it?…It’s 25! You may be thinking, “why on earth would people in their twenties use Botox if they don’t have any wrinkles?” Because these young women value preventative care. Botox not only treats existing lines and wrinkles, but it can also prevent them from forming in the future.
2. Botox is cheaper than popular skin care lines (yes, really).
Everyone knows a good skin care regimen is necessary to keep skin happy and healthy. But creams, lotions, eye masks, scrubs – those all add up quickly, edging out affordability (especially for younger generations). Plus, topical creams can only penetrate so deep into the skin tissue. Botox penetrates deeper, lasts longer, and is cheaper in the long run ($200-$350 every three to four months).
3. Results are seen in 1-2 weeks.
We can’t believe it either. But you can get almost-instant results with Botox, making it perfect for getting ready for vacation, wedding, or summer party. Plus, you can start your regimen off gradually, so no one will notice you’ve gotten injections. Everyone will be wondering what you’re doing to look so good!
