Why Botox Should Be a Part of Your Skincare Routine
Maintaining healthy skin takes more than just daily cleansing and moisturizing. As we age, our skin starts to lose elasticity, forming fine lines and facial wrinkles. Even with a good skincare routine, you’ll still lose volume in your face and develop creases that can make you look older than you feel.
Our injectors here at Akin Aesthetics & Wellness in Riverton, Utah offers several minimally invasive procedures, including Botox®, to enhance the effects of your usual skincare routine. Using a custom treatment plan, Botox injections can be used to prevent signs of premature aging and keep your skin plump, smooth, and crease-free.
The obvious signs of aging
One of the first signs of aging often appears around your eyes. Those little lines that spread out from your eyes, known as crow’s feet, can make you look tired and age you prematurely.
You’re also susceptible to developing deep-set wrinkles in your brow area from years of squinting and smiling. These wrinkles and creases are often one of the first things people notice. People often consider starting anti-aging treatments as early as their 30s, when collagen production starts to slow down and skin starts to lose its youthful glow, to stay proactive about their skin’s health.
How Botox delays the signs of aging
Botox is made from the botulinum toxin, a purified bacterium, that temporarily paralyzes the muscles responsible for frown lines and crow’s feet. Botox works by interfering with the nerve signals that cause muscles to contract. Following your Botox injection, these muscles relax and smooth out to reduce the appearance of even deep-set creases and lines. Results from Botox injections on average can last 3-4 months, ensuring that you maintain a fresh, vibrant look.
Our injectors here at Akin Aesthetics & Wellness will design a custom treatment plan to address the specific areas you are concerned about. Their skilled technique will ensure that your treatment is safe and comfortable and leave you happy with your results.
Complimenting Botox with a beauty routine
After a Botox treatment, your skin will look younger and healthier. And to maintain your youthful glow, we can recommend a skin care regimen that protects your skin from environmental factors, such as the sun and pollution
Some tips to incorporate into your skincare routine may include:
Eating a healthy diet
Staying physically active
Removing makeup before going to bed
Using a facial cleanser and spf daily
Getting regular facial treatments
Protecting your skin from sun damage is one of the most important things you can do to reduce signs of premature aging. Wear a sunscreen every day, even in the winter, to reduce damage from the UV rays of the sun.
By focusing on daily skincare and incorporating Botox into your usual routine, you can retain your youthful look and ensure the health of your skin for a lifetime.
