Men and women all over Vancouver see Dr. Jaffer at Heights Laser Centre every year for Botox® treatments in order to treat signs of aging on their face. This anti-aging solution is actually one of the most popular non-surgical ways to prevent wrinkles. But what about other long-term benefits of Botox®? Are there any? Keep reading as we discuss a little more about how your skin can benefit for years to come from regular use of Botox®.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is a highly processed form of botulinum toxin that is injected into facial muscles to restrict movement. This muscle restriction is how Botox® is so effective at treating wrinkles – by decreasing muscle movement in specific areas of the face the nearby skin is prevented from wrinkling.
Botox® is Health Canada and FDA approved and has proven to be a safe and effective way to significantly diminish signs of aging on the face caused by dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkles that occur after years of repeated facial expressions.
Long Term Skin Benefits of Botox®
Clearly, many men and women in Vancouver have at least heard of the ways Botox® helps patients look younger and more refreshed, but did you know that studies have shown that Botox® actually benefits your skin long-term?
• Botox® benefits the skin by teaching your facial muscles not to frown.
For Vancouver men and women who regularly use Botox® for years, the muscles in their face will become trained not to make certain facial expressions as aggressively as they did in the past. This means that, over time, you will still be able to smile, frown, and furrow your brow to some degree, but once you get used to the sensation of feeling less movement in those areas, you’ll be more aware of the movement as the Botox® wears off. And as you become more aware of your facial expressions, you will naturally avoid excessive facial expressions. This leads to a softer, younger-looking face with fewer wrinkles.
• Botox® benefits the skin by making it look brighter and less wrinkled.
Many medical professionals like Dr. Jaffer agree that patients who receive Botox® for 10 or more years will look younger and have fewer wrinkles on their skin. By staying true to your Botox® regimen, even though you will continue to age, you will always look good for your age with smooth, youthful skin.
• Botox® benefits the skin by imploring elasticity.
As we age, our skin naturally begins to lose elasticity, which is what keeps the facial skin taut and youthful. As this breakdown occurs, the skin begins to sag, droop, and wrinkle. By religiously using Botox® to treat your signs of aging, Dr. Jaffer can help restore your appearance to a more youthful one for years to come. Botox® helps maintain the skin’s elasticity by constricting movement of the muscles injected and preventing wrinkles and further damage to the skin.
