If you’re finding your daily skin and makeup routine is falling short of giving you the results you’re looking for, it may be time to consider incorporating Botox® into your beauty routine. The minimally invasive procedure takes minutes and helps smooth away the years, leaving your skin looking younger and tighter.
Dr. David Chappell and the team at the Institute for Health Management Aesthetics in Petaluma, CA, understand that the way you feel about your looks significantly boosts your overall well-being, including physical health. Feeling self-conscious about your appearance makes it harder to engage with others socially, leaving you feeling isolated and down.
By incorporating Botox into your beauty routine with the help of Dr. Chappell and the team, you can regain your confidence and experience a better quality of living.
What is Botox?
Beginning in your late twenties, your skin starts to lose elasticity and tone. Fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear, and as we age, these changes become more pronounced. Daily cleansing and regular moisturizing with an SPF cream are integral parts of maintaining healthy skin.
But even with the best products and a rigorous routine, your skin will still lose tone and become thinner, causing deeper wrinkles and creases to appear. The result? Your skin doesn’t match the age you feel inside.
Adding Botox, the brand name of a diluted version of the neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, to your routine with the help of Dr. Chappell and his team can help turn back the clock, allowing your skin to look the way you feel.
Botox works by blocking the injected nerve’s signal to the muscle, preventing the muscle from contracting. As a result, skin appears smoother as wrinkles soften and relax in the days after receiving the injections.
Botox treatments can be completed in about 30 minutes, and there’s no recovery time required. You can go back to your activities immediately. You’ll start to notice results within 2 – 3 days, and the effects will last for about 3-4 months.
Side effects are minimal and include bruising, redness, or swelling at the site of injection. These usually resolve within a few days and avoiding medications and supplements, like ibuprofen that thins the blood, can reduce their occurrence.
It’s important to only obtain Botox injections from qualified professionals, like the team at the Institute for Health Management and Aesthetics, for patient wellness and the best results.
How do I add Botox to my beauty routine?
Botox treatments are a sure way to help your skin look younger and healthier. To maintain results, Dr. Chappell can recommend other complementary treatments, as well as a skin care regimen that will boost your youthful appearance.
One of the most important things you can do is to protect your skin from environmental factors that promote signs of aging, such as the sun and air pollutants. Some ways to improve your beauty routine with Botox include:
- Washing your face daily with a gentle cleanser
- Removing all makeup before bedtime
- Wearing sunscreen daily, even on cloudy days or in the winter
- Wearing a hat to block the sun when outdoors
- Eating a healthy diet high in antioxidant-rich foods
- Keeping or starting a physical fitness routine
- Receiving Botox treatments every 3-4 months for continued benefits
By keeping daily skin care top of mind and incorporating Botox into your beauty routine, your skin will remain healthy and continue to look younger and firmer, no matter your age.
Where do I begin?
Botox will boost your beauty routine and get you on the way to looking younger fast. If you’re ready to begin, contact the Institute for Health Management Aesthetics.
While most people are candidates for the injections, Botox isn’t for women who are pregnant or nursing, or people with neuromuscular disease and certain other skin conditions. Before you receive Botox treatments, Dr. Chappell will examine your skin and medical history to ensure Botox is right for you.
In addition, Dr. Chappell will determine the optimal placement for each injection as well as the amount needed to give you the best results for younger-, smoother-looking skin.
