In the last decade, the use of injectables like filler and Botox has become the norm for many women across America. While some prefer to avoid needles and injections, others lined up for botox like it was going out of style, only to end up with regrets.
After chatting with different women about their Botox experiences, here are the things they wish they knew before going under the needle, and what you can do instead to get great results.
It’s Not Forever
Botox hails itself as one of the best treatments available to fill and plump wrinkles to make you look younger. One fact they often forget to mention is that the effects of Botox are not permanent and can have you shelling out thousands of dollars every few months to keep your winkles filled. While this might be in the budget for some A-List celebrities, it’s not a realistic solution for most people.
Instead of shelling out your money on procedures that don’t give lasting results, opt for ingredients in your skincare routine that will provide long term results you can see and feel. Ingredients like Matrixyl are great for giving you a quick fix, but also delivering the right nutrients to your skin so that the results can last for years to come!
It Doesn’t Erase Wrinkles
When you picture Botox, you think of a wrinkle-free face on the cover of a magazine that looks years younger than their natural age. A common misconception about Botox is that it erases wrinkles but the reality is that it simply freezes your facial muscles to keep you from contracting your face in ways that deepen wrinkles and lines. It seems a little misleading to us which is why we were happy to discover there are actual ingredients that can help erase wrinkles without freezing your face.
If you haven’t heard of Proage it might be because its one of the newest and most effective ingredients in skincare today. It has an incredible ability to increase the amount of collagen and elastin in your skin so that you can actually help plump your wrinkles and erase them for good. While Botox can provide some fix for wrinkles, it will never match the power of Proage!
Too Much Ages You Faster
While most Botox doctors and nurses would like you to believe that the more you have, the better you look, having too much Botox does the opposite. Because it freezes your facial muscles, those muscles will weaken over time, and using Botox makes it happen much faster.
Instead of risking the chance of wrinkles getting worse over time from weakened facial muscles, find a high-quality routine that can truly nourish your skin without the risk of it ever making wrinkles worse. The right kind of ingredients will be able to deliver your desired results without causing long term damage to your skin. Look for ingredients that boost collagen and elastin and that can help restructure your skin.
