Over time as we get older our skin loses its elasticity, forms wrinkles and starts to sag. In the past the solution for this was to get plastic surgery. Nowadays we have Botox and dermal fillers for an alternative to plastic surgery. There is a misconception that getting Botox will make you look unnatural and fake. Too much of it certainly can do so. However, when done right it can make you look amazing.

You are probably asking yourself how does Botox and fillers work? The Botox mechanism works by blocking signals from your nerves to muscles. Once the muscle is injected the muscle can no longer contract, causing the wrinkle to relax. The most common areas in the face injected with Botox are the crow’s feet (lines around the eyes), forehead, and the frown lines (area between the eyebrows). Dermal fillers work by increasing your body supply of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid works instantly reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines resulting in a natural fuller look.

Botox and fillers such as Juvéderm can really help your skin look amazing by eliminating lines and making skin look fuller however it’s very important to maintain the skin through proper nutrition and having an effective skin care regiment. Having a good healthy diet will help ensure that you are receiving the correct nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, protein and carbohydrates. An effective skin care regiment can include SPF moisturizer to protect your skin from the sun and various moisturizers, cleansers, serums and exfoliants. Having beautiful skin is very possible and it requires a lot of hard work however when done right your skin will love you.
