Does BOTOX® Prevent Wrinkles?
When men and women in Vancouver start to notice signs of aging on their face that make them look grumpy, sleepy, and older than they actually are, they’re often thrilled to hear that BOTOX® can help restore their face to a more youthful, rested, and happier appearance. At Heights Laser Centre, Dr. Jaffer firmly believes in preventative skin care and maintenance, and Botox® is one way to proactively prevent wrinkles.
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is a cosmetic injectable that is Health Canada and FDA approved. It is used to decrease signs of aging caused by repetitive facial expressions, also known as dynamic wrinkles. By targeting facial muscles near these expression lines, BOTOX® limits their contraction and therefore smooths away crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead creases, and chin and neck wrinkles.
Wrinkle Prevention With Botox
As we mentioned, Dr. Jaffer believes in preventative skin care. He applies this belief to Botox® as well. Though there is no specific age at which Vancouver residents should start Botox®, Dr. Jaffer recommends each man and woman considers using this injectable as part of their skincare regime. For patients who are genetically predisposed to severe signs of aging, starting a preventative Botox® program will help deter many of them. When you start early, you can ultimately prevent wrinkles and lines from every settling into your skin in the first place.
Even if you didn’t jump on a Botox® plan before you started showing signs of aging, no time is a bad time to get started. If your signs of aging are starting to bother you, call Dr. Jaffer to make an appointment for a Botox® consultation so you can learn how this anti-aging solution can help you reach your aesthetic goals.
But What About the Wrinkles I Already Have?
We all know that age doesn’t discriminate. At some point in all our lives, we will have wrinkles, and as we age, those wrinkles will get deeper and deeper. If this sounds like you, and you think you are past the point of prevention, Dr. Jaffer can still use Botox® to help treat and reduce the visibility of your facial wrinkles.
Some of the most common ways men and women who already have dynamic wrinkles choose to use Botox® are to decrease the appearance of their forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet and smooth out the skin on their neck. No matter your age, Botox® can work wonders and turn back the hands of time so you can look your best!
Other Ways You Can Prevent Wrinkles
During your consultation with Dr. Jaffer in his Vancouver clinic, he will review with you a daily skin care regime geared toward your specific skin type. This may include using sunscreen daily, topical Vitamin C serum and topical Vitamin A cream, as well as daily use of Omega 3 oil capsules. All of these “extras” can help keep your skin looking young and refreshed.
