Botox is the Best Anti-Wrinkle Treatment
The title says it all. Botox is the best anti-wrinkle treatment out there. End of story.
The reason Botox is so effective as an anti-wrinkle treatment is because it is the only wrinkle treatment that targets the underlying cause of wrinkles — the muscle.
It all starts with a nerve telling a muscle to contract. This causes the overlying skin to scrunch up. With time and repeated contractions, the skin begins to thin at specific points, and a wrinkle is born.
Think of the skin as a piece of paper. By folding the paper along the same crease over and over, you are deepening/reinforcing that fold and weakening the paper.
Now imagine all of a sudden you cannot fold the piece of paper. Instead, you flatten it out and place it between two large books. With time the fold fades. That is the same mechanism by which Botox can prevent/decrease the wrinkles of the face. The significant distinction in the analogy, however, is that skin is a living organ that can regenerate. So with time and good skin care, wrinkles virtually disappear.
Botox’s competition includes topical creams, which simply do not address the source of the wrinkle, and plastic surgery, which is very invasive and painful. That is why Botox has earned the reputation as the best anti-wrinkle treatment available.
It’s also why 6.1 million people had cosmetic Botox in 2012, up 8 percent from 2011.
All Botox is not the same, however. Make sure you do your homework and find a provider with a good reputation and proven results.
