Aging is inevitable, but does getting wrinkles have to be? We get lines and wrinkles from making facial movements that are unavoidable in everyday situations – laughing, smiling, and frowning. When we are younger, our skin bounces back quickly and easily, but as we age our skin loses its elasticity and becomes thinner, which causes those lines to stick around longer, even permanently.
Many doctors and nurses in the cosmetic field agree that it is easier to prevent a wrinkle than it is to eliminate one. Men and women are starting treatments such as Dysport earlier, even in their 20’s and 30’s, as a preventative measure. Just as you may inherit your mother’s eyes or your father’s nose, you can safely bet that you will get those signature “eleven lines” or “crow’s feet” around the eyes they have one day as well. When you treat earlier, you are training your muscles not to make those facial movements as forcefully and it will pay off in the long run. Studies have also shown that hyaluronic acid fillers stimulate your body’s natural collagen production, making for healthier and thicker skin later in life.
Over the past decade there has been a surge in the aesthetic interventions. Women and men alike are becoming educated on the importance of taking care of their skin earlier, before it’s too late. People schedule their regular waxing and hair appointments and take care of their bodies with a gym routine, so why not Dysport, Botox, fillers and other cosmetic procedures to preserve their youthful skin? When you reach 50, you will thank you!
