5 Reasons To Start Botox in Your 30s

Imagine this scenario, you vacuum and maintain your room's cleanliness everyday versus spring cleaning once a month. Which method takes lesser time to return your room to its clean and sparkling state? Definitely your daily dilligence. This is the same for taking care of your skin before any trace of lines. As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure.

When you hit the 30s, you may start to notice that you skin looks drier and is not as radiant as before. This is because the reproduction of new cells produced by your skin is starting to decline drastically. More fine lines around your eyes and mouth may also start to look more prominent, refusing to disappear even when you stop smiling.

Collagen holds the skin together, 

elastin gives the skin elasticity.

Both start to lose their grips and thus 

expression lines start to form.

What is BOTOX?

BOTOX is derived from a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. In small doses,  BOTOX injections paralyse certain muscles to temporary smooth facial wrinkles and even improve some health problems.

This quick fix lunchtime procedure takes effect in 3 - 4 days and the optimal results are attained in 7 - 10 days. The satisfying effects last for 3 - 12 months, and re-injections are required to prolong the desired results.

Starting BOTOX in your 30s will keep those crepey wrinkles and saggy skin at bay, limiting the development of deeper creases in the near future and it will be easier to treat these fine lines as well.

Here are the 5 reasons why you should start BOTOX in your 30s to look younger and fresher for a much longer time:

  V-shape Slim Face

BOTOX for facial sculpting or contouring is a popular technique used to achieve a younger and slimmer feminine V-shape face.

Young faces are widest at the eye area and narrowest at the jaw and chin, this is known as the "triangle of youth". As we age, the loss of collagen, elasticity and hyaluronic acid causes our supple skin to lose its holding power, the skin start to sag and lose its volume. Our faces grow wider and appear more squarish at the base as time goes by, resulting in an older and more haggard visage.  This is when BOTOX comes to the rescue.

  Reduce Crow’s Feet

When you smile brightly or squint excessively, your orbital muscles shorten and relax, causing crow's feet to temporarily appear. As you hit your 30s, these interim wrinkles become permanent and more rooted. The thinner layer of skin and reduced sebum secretion around the eyes as we mature, make the already fragile area more susceptible to drying and crinkling.

BOTOX works its magic by 

exerting a temporary freezing effect on the orbital muscle, 

causing crow's feet to diminish temporary.

 Smooth Frown Lines

Glabellar lines aka frown lines, are the lines between your eyebrows that develop over the years as we contract our muscle to frown or squint. As a prominent feature for facial expression, frown lines are one of the easiest wrinkles to form. Frown lines are associated with negative feelings like anger, worry or sadness.

Nevertheless, these worry lines are easily corrected with a small amount of BOTOX within a week's time. FDA approved the use of botox back in 2002 for its ability to temporary reduce frown lines. The result should be a relaxed and calm looking pair of brows. Too much BOTOX may cause your eyebrows to emerge unnaturally arched and disturbingly uneven as if they are going to take off from your forehead!

If your frown lines are more rooted, your aesthetic doctor may advise the combination of BOTOX and Fillers.

If your frown lines are more rooted, your aesthetic doctor may advise the combination of BOTOX and Fillers. Natural facial fillers like Restylane fills in the lines when at rest, but it will not stop your muscles from making lines when you frown or squint. These two beauty fixes synergise together to excel better, wrecking these frustrating strokes on your forehead.

 Pores Reduction

Other than smoothing out your unwanted creases, BOTOX  in microinjections aka MICRO-BOTOX can be injected just below the surface of the skin to shrink unsightly large pores.

The shrunk sweat glands and sebaeous glands reduce sweat and sebum production, resulting in smooth clear skin. It's the same technique used when treating excessive sweating, where botox blocks the nerve signals that command the sweat glands to stop sweating.

Apart from the pinprick marks from the BOTOX injections, results such as vanished pores and smooth skin are almost immediate. Perfect skin with zero downtime, thank you botox!

 Reduce Teeth Grinding and Associated Pains

Bruxism aka chronic teeth grinding can cause great physical pains such as jaw soreness, headache, earaches, and even migraines, as well as severe dental problems like loss of tooth enamel, tooth sensitivity, and chipping of the teeth.

By injecting small doses of botox into the masseter muscle, this large muscle that controls the movement of the jaw is weakened to reduce involuntary grinding of the teeth and clenching of the jaw while sleeping. Voluntary movements of the jaw like chewing and facial expressions, will not be effected by botox.

Botox will be active for about 3-4 months after the first procedure, and some patients require a re-injection only until 6-12 months later to reduce teeth grinding. Subsequent treatments require fewer doses as well, as the muscles are generally weaker after each injection.

There are cases when bruxism sufferers are cured permanently after a period of botox treatments. Botox injections are no longer required after the end of their treatment. Good luck!
