A sprinkle here and a sprinkle there, Wrinkle Relaxers such as Botox and Dysport are one of the hottest and most minimally invasive trends to hit the skincare scene. Mainly because it is a quick lunchtime procedure, with no downtime, and the perfect solution to stay looking young. And, it’s one of best ways to prevent lines and wrinkles from even starting.
In fact, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures has grown nearly 200 percent since 2000, with no indication of slowing down, as mentioned in a recent trends article in Allure magazine.
The more a muscle is used, the more your lines and wrinkles will appear. Wrinkle relaxers including Botox and Dysport directly block the signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can no longer contract, which causes the skin to stay relaxed and therefore improves the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
While wrinkle relaxers are used to prevent, soften and weaken repetitive muscle movements that cause deep lines on the skin’s surface, the most common areas treated include the forehead, around the eyes and those annoying #11 between the eyebrows. The goal is to relax your expressive muscles and smooth out those pesky creases on the skin. You will look brighter and well rested in just 1 treatment.
30s are the perfect time to start preventative care to continue enjoying your youth, career and the dating scene. However, 40 is the most common time men and women start getting Botox. But, every 40-year-old wishes they could go back and start preventing the wrinkles in their 30s. Aging gracefully is key, and Oil of Olay isn’t going to cut it. The 30s and 40s are the best years to invest in yourself, so you can stay vibrant and confident in your 50s, 60s and 70s!
“Botox all boils down to expertise and execution. It’s important that you choose an experienced board-certified nurse that knows what he or she is doing.” Administering injections is just as much art, as it is science. You must have a thorough understanding of how the different muscles in the face work, but just as important is understanding injection dose amounts.
An experience practitioner, like the nurses at Alda Aesthetics will take the time to carefully educate you, so you feel comfortable with the process prior to developing a customized treatment. The goal will always be to provide you with a look that is authentic and undetectable!
First the skin is cleaned. Then the areas that are contributing to deep lines and wrinkles will be identified. The last step is a master trained aesthetic nurse injector will inject a custom Botox or Dysport treatment. This comfortable and well tolerated treatment usually takes less than 10 minutes.
Does it hurt? If you are going to a true professional, the injection should not cause any severe pain; it’s part of the art of administering Botox. Experienced nurses at Alda Aesthetics are extremely knowledgeable about the facial muscles and how to avoid pain. Some people don’t feel a thing, but most people feel a slight pinch.
You will begin to see a gradual softening within 5-7 days and full results after 14 days. For optimal, long-lasting results, it is recommended to return for maintenance dosing every 3 months. With every 3-4 month maintenance dosing you can be certain you are preventing new lines from forming and permanently softening the ones you already have.
