Why do we get wrinkles in the first place? Have you ever thought about it?
There are 4 main reasons to those pesky lines that we try to fight our entire lines.
1. Ageing – Because we all go through it. The wear and tear that the skin goes through after so many years can take a toll on it after a good few decades of our existence in this world. We can’t stop it or deny it and it’s best to accept it gracefully and make the most out of it. Botox Injections is the preferred non-surgical, non-invasive choice of most women to give their ageing skin a boost of youthfulness.
2. Sun damage by exposure to sun – Can you imagine the number of instances we must have been in the sun without a SPF or a hat? The UV rays can be extremely damaging to the delicate skin when exposed to sunlight without any protection at all. Why people tend to ignore this is because it’s damaging results are not immediately visible and can’t be seen with the naked eye until after a good few years. Sun damage doesn’t only cause pigmentation and sun spots but the sun rays can actually break collagen in the skin, leading to a saggy, wrinkled skin and accelerating the ageing process.
Sun can also make you cringe and scowl which can lead to formation of wrinkles and fine lines in the future. Again, Botox Injections can act as the saviour in this instance for skin’s that have gone through sun damage by being the only method to reverse wrinkles caused by sun exposure in a painfree and guaranteed manner.
3. Reduction of collagen and elastin in the skin – This can happen to a greater extent and much earlier in age in women as compared to men and this is due to hormonal ageing which is usually kicked in by menopause. It’s a known fact that collagen and elastin levels start decreasing in the skin naturally since the age of 25 but it’s much more visible via wrinkles, folds, expression lines and fine lines in 40’s and 50’s. Supplements, a good nutritional diet, no smoking, regular exercising and less stress can surely help in boosting collagen levels but obvious loss of bounce, suppleness and elasticity in the skin can be repaired by Botox Injections that leave the face tight, firm and 10 years younger with just a few injections.
4. The working of natural muscles/expression lines – Did you know it takes 26 facial muscles to smile and 62 to frown? From smiling and frowning to every minute facial expression we make in every hour of the day can dictate not only our personality to others but also how our face will age over time. That does not mean you shouldn’t smile or frown as sometimes these are completely out of our control and happen unconsciously. As a preventative measure, women in their 20’s and 30’s are increasingly opting for Botox Injections on the forehead and around the mouth area to avoid expression lines and wrinkles from developing in the first place. Precaution is always better than cure even when it comes to ageing!
