Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. With age, our skin gets thinner, drier and we lose elastin. The ability for our skin to protect itself is reduced as we age. Eventually, wrinkles, creases and lines form on our skin.
Continuous muscle contraction is also another major contributor of facial wrinkles. Continuous muscle movement causes 'dynamic wrinkles' which only appear when the muscle is used, however, over time, if untreated, these wrinkles can become 'static wrinkles' which means they become permanently etched in our skin.
It's leaving others to guess It’s not about getting rid of every miniscule line. It’s about the prevention of those deeper lines that might bother you. Over time, your skin’s natural ability to protect itself reduces. Muscle contractions and movement leave their mark. Anti wrinkle injections are a quick, affordable and effective wrinkle treatment to help reduce and prevent wrinkle formation.
The answer is Why Not?. There are several reasons for the increase in men and women seeking these procedures; it’s quick, it’s easy, and it can be as subtle as they’d like. Which has always been a goal of getting Botox injections. To smooth out and refresh one’s appearance without anyone being able to notice.
But one of the biggest motivators is competition in the workplace. With many postponing retirement, there exists a new desire to stay competitive and to look the part of the capable professional. Which makes sense when you compare that to the largest demographic getting Botox injections, age 35 to 65. A combination of years of work experience with a confident and vibrant appearance is a real motivator for many men and women.
