Botox: The Ultimate Fix for Wrinkles and Lines
Back in the day, it was unwise to reveal a person’s spotless facial features were a direct result of a facelift or a nose lift. Going “under the knife” added uncertainty, and women were generally discouraged from cosmetic procedures. There was much emphasis put on a more “natural” look, which the society deemed was far more beautiful and becoming on a woman.
That is fine until you realize what “natural” really entails. What you look at the glossy covers of magazines and in heavily edited celebrity Instagram accounts is far from “natural.” As a person ages, the body and skin begins to deteriorate, wrinkles and other signs of aging begin to appear. You can stop the onslaught of lines and wrinkles no more than you can prevent yourself from aging.
How the Face Ages
According to WebMD, the face begins losing its “baby fat” as you move from your teenage to your 20s. Your face begins to look less round and more “womanly.”
This is the first phase of facial aging, where exposure to the sun is the biggest culprit of crow’s feet. The face begins to appear more mature and develops a more “tired” look as you move on to your 30s. The dreaded nasolabial lines and the 11 lines appear at this stage, although the seeds for their growth appear during the teenage.
Why the Face Ages
Apart from the general loss of collagen, which makes your face less elastic and makes it prone to sagging, various reasons lead to the development of lines and wrinkles (which are indicators of aging at best). These include smoking, alcohol consumption, exposure to the sun, and tanning.
How Botox Can Help
Botox is simply the name of treatment—the agent that brings about the miraculous change and transformation is a toxin called botulinum.
When administered by a professional and in just the right amount, the botulinum can bring about startling changes in the skin. When injected into the facial muscles, the toxin blocks impulses between tissues and muscles. It also blocks muscle activity due to which frowns, grins, and lines become visible. The face, as a result, begins looking smoother and younger. It all revolves around the relaxation of the muscles, which are responsible for facial movements.

Botox helps you look younger by reducing the effects of aging on your body and skin. Neuromuscular muscular tissues such as eyelids that droop due to swelling in the prostate gland are also treated. Botox works by targeting and affecting the nervous system. Within two days of the injection, the targeted muscles begin to relax, reducing wrinkles and lines.
Countless celebrities and individuals have opted for the treatment in a bid to look more youthful, and have succeeded. The procedure goes well and in due course of time, it starts to bring the desired effects.
