The Science Behind Botox

Research on Botulinum toxin (Botox) shows that there is more to the treatment than just temporary skin quality improvements. Studies published in the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) are showing more and more that Botox has long-lasting effects, measurably slowing down the skin’s aging process. In fact, Botox treatment in Encinitas can be considered an integral part of preventative skin care.

The various reasons to use Botox include a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improved skin elasticity, skin smoothening, and the slowing down of the visible aging of the skin. In most cases, Botox leads to dramatic effects that can be immediate as well as permanent and long-term. While not a miracle cure that somehow stops people from aging entirely, there are many things Botox can do that no other treatment can.

Botox can be used to prevent and treat different types of skincare issues, in various parts of the face including the most sensitive areas like around the eyes. In fact, the fine lines that form around the edges of the eyes, as well as around the mouth, respond well to Botox treatments. The recent research on the long-term effects of Botox suggests that the treatment can restore the skin’s elasticity to a substantial and measurable degree. Starting Botox early may ensure that the long-term effects are more apparent.

It may be best to think of Botox like dyeing gray hairs. The best way to dye gray hairs is to start early, as soon as the first few appear. That way, no one can tell you have been dyeing your hair. With Botox, starting as soon as the visible signs of aging appear means that you retain a continuity of youthful appearance throughout your life.
