The stress of life, genetics, and lifestyle habits all contribute to the aging process. When those lines appear, you need a way to combat them and we have the solution. At Aesthetic Surgical Arts/Mia Bella Donna Medspa Overland Park, KS, we offer Botox injections as a way to combat the aging process and make those lines and wrinkles disappear and help you look and feel your best, whatever your age.
What Is the Right Age for Getting Botox?
Once you reach adulthood, Botox knows no age. Anyone who wants to benefit from this anti-aging treatment can find relief from lines and wrinkles, whether they are more minor or more severe. Individuals in their twenties who have deep lines due to genetics over which they have no control can begin this treatment, as can those in their thirties, forties, or beyond who have begun to look and feel older than they are.
The Aging Process
While most people begin to see the signs of aging making a mark on their skin in their thirties, lines and wrinkles can begin to appear as early as your twenties or as late as the forties. There is no exact science when it comes to aging, but thankfully advancements in the beauty world have made it possible to get rid of the signs of aging, at least temporarily.
Botox does not discriminate. Instead, it is a treatment that can benefit everyone who has the signs of aging and wants to regain their confidence, whether they are in their twenties, thirties, forties, fifties, or beyond.
In the 20’s
If you are a perfectionist in your twenties and have begun to show the signs of aging, even if they are minor, you will benefit from making this treatment a regular part of your anti-aging routine.
In the 30’s
Most people begin to show the signs of aging in their thirties, and when they do, they need somewhere to turn to regain their youthful glow and in doing so, regain their confidence. If you are in your thirties, whether you are a mother, a professional, or a working mother, and the stress of life has begun to affect your skin, this cosmetic injectable will help your skin relax and allow you to regain your youthful glow.
In the 40’s and Beyond
If you are in your forties or older and haven’t begun an anti-aging routine and you feel like it’s too late for you to begin Botox, we have good news: it’s not too late. You can still benefit from all that this injectable has to offer, and you can find relief from your lines and wrinkles, whether they are moderate or more severe. Once you see your results, you’ll return for follow-up treatments time and time again, and you won’t be able to go back to your old skin.
What Is Botox?
This treatment is an FDA-approved neurotoxin in a cosmetic injectable form that temporarily reduces and erases the signs of aging on the face, specifically lines and wrinkles. It erases dynamic wrinkles, which are wrinkles caused by dynamic muscular movements. Dynamic movements are expressive movements that occur when you such as laugh, smile, frown, cry, squint, or raise your eyebrows.
How Does It Work?
What Areas Does It Treat?
While other brands of neurotoxins only treat one specific area of the face, Botox is FDA-approved to treat several. It can erase moderate to severe forehead lines, frown lines that appear between the eyebrows, and smile lines that form at the outside corners of the eyes, also known as crow’s feet.
Another benefit of this neurotoxin is that its uses are widespread. This treatment is also used in the medical world as a way to provide people with relief from different medical ailments. When administered by a medical professional, this treatment can help treat:
- Muscle stiffness in adults
- Strabismus, also known as crossed eyes, in those 12 and older
- Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
- Overactive bladder syndrome
- Eyelid spasms due to dystonia
- Head and neck pain stemming from the neurological disorder known as cervical dystonia
How Many Units Will I Need?
The total number of units needed during treatment varies dramatically. Those who have deeper lines may require more units than those who have moderate lines. During your initial consultation, our skincare experts will discuss your goals, analyze your problem areas, and help determine a treatment plan that will best meet those goals.
When Will I Notice Results?
You will notice the results a few days after your treatment. Once the ingredients in this neurotoxin settle into the muscle, the skin will relax and you will experience a continual smoothing effect that will continue to improve during the week following initial treatment. If you don’t see a change in your wrinkles right away, you can rest assured that your results will appear, they just take a little time.
How Long Will My Results Last?
The total amount of time that your results last depends on how quickly your body metabolizes the ingredients in this injectable. Once that happens, you will begin to notice movement in your face and you may start to see the reappearance of your lines and wrinkles. Typically, most people’s results last for four months. However, some people’s results last as long as six months or as short as three months.
Can I Extend My Results?
Take Care of Your Skin
To improve the appearance of your results, take care of your skin, and keep it as healthy as possible. This treatment will not prevent acne, melasma, or any other skin condition.
Take Your Vitamins
One of the most affordable ways to improve your skin is to drink more water. The body is primarily composed of water and that is true of the skin as well. If your skin is dehydrated, you will be more prone to developing lines and wrinkles and your skin will suffer.
