Skin type, genetics and environmental factors such as smoking, sun exposure and skin care all influence the rate our skin ages. If you are looking to correct or prevent ageing you may come across Botox while doing your research.
There is no recommended age to start having Botox unless you are under 18, so ultimately the choice is yours.
As we get older, the effects of ageing mean that lines & wrinkles become static, so they are present all the time regardless of whether we are frowning, smiling or lifting our eyebrows. These lines are now wrinkles so treatment with Botox would be corrective rather than preventive.
Prevention is better than cure as with most anti ageing treatments so opting for Botox in very small doses is a good way to stop expression lines becoming permanent wrinkles.
Botox works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can no longer contract, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften. It is most often used on forehead lines, crow’s feet (lines around the eye) and frown lines.
At Persona we will ask you to attend a free of charge consultation before you decide on going ahead with any Botox treatment.
