Daily cleansing and regular moisturizing are not enough when you want to maintain healthy-looking skin because as you age, your skin would start to lose elasticity, form fine lines, and facial wrinkles. You would still lose volume in your face and develop creases that would make you look older even when you have a good beauty routine. Botox in New Orleans has become quite known because it offers a minimally invasive procedure that could enhance your usual beauty routine.
When was Botox First Used in Aesthetics?
The most popular treatment day that is on record in the United States was late 1989 and the original injectable has become ubiquitous for the ability of the injectable to freeze faces and hold back time, making it look like they did not age at all. Botox has changed the face of humanity, literally, since then.
Does Botox Help You Look Younger?
Botox helps in delaying your signs of aging because it is an innovative injection therapy that is made from botulinum toxin, which is a purified bacteria. Its job is to temporarily paralyze the muscles that are responsible for the frown lines and the crow’s feet and works by interfering with the nerve signals that would cause your muscles to contract.
After you get your Botox injection, the muscles on your face would relax and smoothen out to reduce the appearance of deep-set creases and lines on your face. This is not a filler, but it is there to address the root causes of your lines and wrinkles. It would be able to last for several months.
4 Types of Botulinum Toxin Injections:
This is a non-invasive injectable for wrinkle treatment that would temporarily decrease your muscle movement in the targeted areas on your face to soften the appearance of glabellar lines. These are the vertical wrinkles that are mostly seen on your forehead in between your eyebrows.
Botox is a brand name of a toxin that is made by the bacteria called Clostridium botulinum and doctors had been using these for years to treat wrinkles and facial creases.
It could help other conditions like severe underarm sweating, blinking that you can not control, chronic migraine, overactive bladder, eyes that point in different directions, and cervical dystonia (a neurological disorder that causes severe neck and shoulder muscle spasm.)
RimabotulinumtoxinB, otherwise known as Myobloc, is called botulinum toxin type B because it is made from the bacteria that causes botulism. This bacteria blocks nerve activity in the muscles that would temporarily cause a reduction in muscle activity and it is used to treat severe spasms in the neck muscles, also known as cervical dystonia.
IncobotulinumtoxinA (botulinum toxin type A) is also known as Xeomin and is made from the bacteria that causes botulism. It is used to treat the following:
- Temporarily lessens the appearance of facial wrinkles, which are sometimes called frown lines that are found between the eyebrows.
- Cervical Dystonia *severe spasms in the neck muscles), and muscle stiffness in the elbows, toes, ankles, fingers, and wrists.
- Muscle spasm, and stiffness of the arms
- Certain eye muscle conditions are usually caused by nerve disorders, which would include uncontrolled blinking or spasms of the eyelids, and conditions where the eyes often point in the same direction.
Botox and Beauty Routine
Your skin would look much younger and healthier after a Botox treatment and it would help you maintain your youthful glow so you should do a skincare regimen that would protect your skin from the sun and pollution, and keep your skin in optimal condition.
Here are some tips that you could incorporate into your everyday beauty routine:
- Staying physically active
- Using a gentle facial cleanser daily
- Eating a healthy diet
- Removing makeup before going to bed
- Avoid the outdoors during the early morning and afternoon hours to protect your skin’s health
- If you need to go outside, you have to seek shade and wear a wide-brim hat to block out the sun’s rays
One of the most important things that you could do to reduce signs of aging is to protect your skin from sun damage so you should wear high-quality sunscreen every day, even when you are just staying at home during the wintertime, to reduce the ultraviolet rays of the sun.
