Did You Know That Botox In Hamilton Can Actually Prevent Wrinkles?

March 4th, 2021

If you want to be proactive about aging gracefully, you’re probably wearing sunscreen, exercising, and eating a healthy diet. And while you may think of doing Botox after you start noticing wrinkles, you may want to consider doing it sooner! Botox in Hamilton is widely known as a great way to treat facial wrinkles, but it’s actually another anti-aging “tool in your toolkit.” After reading this blog, you’ll have a better idea of what Botox is and how it can work to not only treat wrinkles but prevent them as well. Find out more below!

What Is Botox?

Botox is a type of “neuromodulator,” meaning it’s an injection that relaxes wrinkles (although it has many medical and therapeutic uses as well).

It’s the most widely used non-surgical cosmetic treatment, and with good reason: It safely, effectively, and reliably works for millions of people. In fact, there are an estimated 6 million Botox treatments given every year.

How does it work? It relaxes the small muscles in the face by blocking the signal they receive from the nerves. This prevents the muscles from contracting with as much force, which softens them considerably.

How Does Botox Work To Prevent Facial Wrinkles?

A wrinkle is the result of repeated muscle contractions. Over time, the skin loses its ability to “bounce back” and develops wrinkles, even when the muscles aren’t contracted. Botox prevents this from ever occurring in the first place.

More and more, people are having Botox treatments starting around the age of 30. With relatively small, regular treatments around this age, future wrinkles are dramatically reduced because the muscles are prevented from ever contracting.

Botox is also a perfect adjunct to other types of cosmetic treatments such as Juvederm in Hamilton. This treatment is a type of “filler” that plumps up the facial structure in the right places to further provide a natural and youthful appearance.

How Long Will the Effects Last?

When Botox is used cosmetically, the results usually take full effect in approximately 7-10 days. While each person is different, results typically last 3-6 months.

And since getting Botox is fast and easy, many patients simply schedule their appointments with a specially-trained dentist who can administer it during their 6-month checkups. With these regular treatments, it couldn’t be more convenient to maintain your results and prevent wrinkles from forming down the road.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure – even when it comes to aging!
