Incorporating Botox Into Your Regular Beauty Routine

There’s a good reason why Botox and its counterparts continually hold the number one spot for nonsurgical cosmetic procedures in the United States — it’s one of the most effective anti-aging tools available. Millions of people turn to these quick and easy injections to combat the lines and wrinkles that form around their eyes, brows, and foreheads — and they keep up with their injections to maintain their great results.

At Jordan Valley Dermatology, under the expert guidance of Douglass W. Forsha, MD, our team offers a wide range of cutting-edge aesthetic services to our clients in West Jordan, Utah. As our name implies, we’ve equipped ourselves with the best state-of-the-art laser equipment available, yet many of our clients still turn to tried-and-true cosmetic injectables like Botox for foundational anti-aging care.

Here’s a look at why so many people incorporate Botox into their regular beauty routines.

Drawing the lines

Before we get into why Botox works so well for so many, let’s quickly review what we’re up against. The lines and wrinkles that come with aging are caused by a number of formidable forces, including:

This last point is one we’d like to emphasize. Every time you smile, squint, frown, or furrow your brow in concentration, muscles contract to form lines on the top half of your face. As the years go by, these expression lines become increasingly etched into your skin, forming well-worn paths that linger long after your expression has faded.

Short of neutralizing your face and going expressionless, the best way to tackle these lines is to quiet the muscles responsible for them, which is where Botox comes in.

The Botox difference

Botox was approved by the FDA to temporarily make moderate-to-severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines look better. The key ingredient in Botox is onabotulinumtoxinA, which is a neuromodulator that temporarily paralyzes the muscles that contract to form the expression lines around your eyes, brows, and forehead.

We administer Botox through strategically placed injections along your muscle pathways, giving you a more youthful, and often more relaxed, appearance.

Keeping up the routine

While Botox is incredibly effective at reducing wrinkles and fine lines, it’s also one of the easier cosmetic treatments we offer. The injections take just minutes for us to administer, and there’s no downtime afterward, which means you don’t skip a beat in your day.

After your injections, your wrinkles should fade away within 24-72 hours, giving you a blank slate to work with again.

Most of our clients enjoy these amazing results for up to four months, at which point they simply return for another round. In other words, all it takes is just 3-4 quick visits a year to keep the wrinkles at bay. As beauty routines go, this one is very easy and takes less time than servicing your car throughout the year.
