What happens to our skin as we age?
Your skin weakens with age. It becomes thinner, loses fat, and no longer looks as plump and smooth as it once did. Your veins and bones can be seen more easily. Age spots start to appear and wrickles start to build around the eyes, mouth and forhead.
What causes wrickles?
As you get older, your skin naturally becomes less elastic and more fragile. Your skin starts to dry out and can no longer produce natural oils. Dry skin makes it appear more wrinkled. Fat in the skin diminishes. This causes loose, saggy skin and more-pronounced lines and crevices.
How it works?
Botox shots block certain chemical signals from nerves that cause muscles to contract. The most common use of these injections is to relax the facial muscles that cause frown lines and other facial wrinkles. Botox basiclly numbs the muscles in the face which keeps them from leaving perminate lines in the face.
Why you should start now?
Here at The Healthcare Gallery we view Botox as a preventitive treatment. Studies show that poeple who start Botox earlier in life tend to have smoother, younger skin and a more refushed, well rested look comparted to those who started later in life. It is never too late to start, but the sooner the better in order to stop fine lines before they are making permanate damage to the skin.
