Why is Botox Becoming More Popular in All Age Groups?

Posted on March 28, 2018 by Ella Fedonenko

The rise of social media has also heightened our perception of what is considered beautiful. People of all ages are looking for ways to keep up with these elevated beauty standards. Aging manifests itself, among other things, in the form of lines and wrinkles. There are numerous ways to fight aging, but one of the most effective methods happens to be Botox. The treatment is typically used on the upper half of the face to suppress muscle movements that can cause formation of glabellar and horizontal forehead lines and crow’s feet. Dynamic wrinkles form because of repetitive muscle movements. As we age our skin becomes less supple due to the loss of collagen and elasticity. Thus, contractions of our facial muscles have more of a lasting impact the older we get.

There’s a popular saying that, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” and that could not be more true than in the case of wrinkles. We can help prevent dynamic wrinkles from forming by incorporating Botox into our beauty routines. Botox is very effective at keeping skin smooth because it works to inhibit the root cause of the wrinkle formation. Thus, younger people are increasingly turning to cosmetic enhancements, such as Botox, to help them prevent wrinkles.

When can I see results?
You can expect to see results within 7 to 14 days. Skin will appear smoother for a period of three to four months after the initial injection.

How long does the treatment take?
The procedure takes less than ten minutes. You will have an extensive consultation with an aesthetic medical professional before your Botox treatment.

Is Botox safe to use for forehead lines?
Botox is the only treatment of its kind approved by the FDA to treat crow’s feet and glabellar lines.

The Most Common Reasons Men Choose Botox

Posted on September 5, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Botox has become increasingly popular with men in recent years. The majority of men who opt for Botox injections are professionals between the ages of 35 and 65. Just as women, men choose Botox because they want to appear younger, but their biggest reason for choosing it is the desire to stay competitive in the workplace.

  • Areas round the eyes and forehead are the most common Botox injection sites for men.
  • Frown lines, also known as 11s, is another popular treatment area for men. These vertical lines between the eyebrows can create an angry or tired appearance.
  • Men who suffer from hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, have also seen the benefits of Botox. It can be used to treat underarms, face, feet, and palms.
  • Botox is a proven treatment option for migraines.

Sweating helps regulate the body’s temperature. It is a necessity to keep your body cool when you are working hard or out in the sun. However, when you have a problem with excessive sweating, you may find that you sweat even when the temperature is cool—especially if you get flustered or embarrassed. Once you perspire a little bit, you may sweat even more. In some cases it can make you feel uncomfortable about your body odor, even if you shower regularly. Luckily, there may be a solution.
