Summer is almost everyone’s favorite season, with all the traveling, swimming, and sunbathing involved. However, it’s all fun and games until you realize how much sun damage you’ve added to your skin.
But, there is something you can do to recover your natural beauty, even and especially when summer is over. Thanks to Botox® Cosmetic, you can embrace wrinkle-free skin even beyond summer.
Here’s how it can help:
What Is Botox® Cosmetic?
Botox® is arguably the most well-known injectable neuromodulator on the market. Made by Allergan, it has remained one of the most popular treatments for dynamic wrinkles, including the frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet, and forehead lines.
Botox® injections can reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles by temporarily relaxing facial muscles by blocking nerve signals to the muscles, thereby reducing the intensity of muscle contractions in the treated area.
When the injected muscles can no longer move, the once-dynamic wrinkles will appear less visible and noticeable.
How Can Botox® Help Sun-Damaged Skin?
Even among those who carefully protect their skin by wearing sunscreen and sunglasses, excessive sun exposure can still damage the skin. These damages can manifest in many forms, including:
- Blotchiness or redness;
- Dark or sunspots;
- Dry skin texture; or
- Uneven skin tone.
When you have existing wrinkles, too much sun rays can cause deeper lines and creases. Worse, the resulting damage often will not appear until after years of exposure.
Fortunately, you don’t have to wait years before receiving treatment.
Botox® is highly regarded as one of the most versatile medical tools nowadays. While it can treat other conditions, it is most known to eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, including those caused by sun exposure.
In the hands of experienced Botox® providers such as Restore Center for Aesthetics, it is possible to reduce the appearance of sun-damaged skin within 3-4 months. Afterward, you’ll need maintenance treatments to keep your skin smoother and younger-looking – even after the summer.
What To Expect During Treatment
An entire Botox® procedure takes around 10-15 minutes, depending on the treatment area, and here’s what you can expect during your appointment.
- Consultation – Your injector will discuss the treatment and ask about your expectations, medical history, and possible concerns.
- Before and After Photos – It’s also possible that your provider will take photos of the treatment area to see the chances after your treatment.
- Treatment Proper – After cleansing your face, the provider will inject the areas of concern.
Botox® injections use super thin needles, so it should be painless. At most, you’ll only feel mild discomfort. Moreover, you can always request a topical numbing cream to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure.
When Is the Best Time to Get Botox®?
Contrary to common misconceptions, a Botox® isn’t solely for treating existing fine lines and wrinkles. In fact, it is also considered as a preventative treatment.
Hence, many patients in Munster, IN, start their Botox® treatments in their 20s and 30s. After all, prevention is always better than cure.
