Should You Get Preventative Botox?

June 16, 2017, Author: The Posh Packer

Wrinkles are an inevitable effect of aging. Genetics, lifestyle, and repetitive facial actions such as smiling and frowning affect the depth of wrinkles and crow’s feet. Wrinkles become more pronounced as you age because of the gradual loss of skin suppleness to the point that it can no longer “bounce back” to its original smoothness.

For many men and women, Botox has become the treatment of choice when it comes to preventing the signs of aging. Many consider it as less invasive, safe, and even has health benefits (Botox is used to prevent migraines). In Salt Lake City, Botox treatments are available in many medical spas and cosmetic health clinics.

Botox

Botox is a drug made from botulin (a bacterial toxin) that is capable of temporarily causing the nerves to go temporarily numb. When used for skin rejuvenation, Botox relaxes the muscles that cause creasing when you smile or frown. It prevents wrinkles from forming and deepening.

The surgeon injects Botox into specific places on the upper surface of the skin. It is a non-invasive procedure, and the regularity of the treatment depends on your doctor’s recommendations.

Preventative Botox

Botox treatment prevents the formation of wrinkles; many people want to consider it even before wrinkles start to form. The numbing of the nerve cells deadens the muscles and prevents it from excessive movement, and some call this preventative Botox.

For some, it is a more viable option because other treatments such as fillers or facelifts could be more invasive than Botox. For many, preventative Botox is a good way to stop the signs of aging.

Conclusion

Preventative Botox is a safe, non-invasive dermatological procedure that cosmetically prevents the formation of facial wrinkles. Check with a cosmetic surgeon from a reputable clinic or spa in Salt Lake City. Listen to their advice and guidance about the treatment, post-treatment regimen and maintenance for youthful-looking skin.
