So, you’ve hit the big 4-0 and those lotions and potions aren’t really doing what they once did.
What’s a girl (or a guy) to do?
There are other options that might give you just the results you need to look and feel younger minus the slathering of products.
You’ve most likely heard of Botox and how it has been touted as a miracle solution to taking off unwanted years from your face. Many who have taken the plunge have said goodbye to forehead creases and crow’s feet thanks to Botox.
Botulinum toxin injections — or more commonly referred to as Botox — when used for cosmetic reasons help if you are developing lines and wrinkles on your face due to common facial movements. Depending on genetics, lines can appear on the face as early as your late twenties to as late as your early forties.
If you are prone to developing lines and to making facial expressions that lead to wrinkles, your medical professional may recommend using botulinum toxin as a preventative measure.
Certain wrinkles or creases in the face caused by the weakening or sinking of the soft tissue, such as the nasolabial folds, which extend from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth, are generally best treated with fillers, fat grafts or surgery (although occasionally Botox is used to soften or partially improve them). If you are in good general health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for Botox.
Be sure you have the procedure performed by a professional who knows what they are doing and can answer your questions honestly and openly.
The next time you look in the mirror and after you have had Botox, you might see someone who looks younger, brighter and ready to turn back time starting back.
