Wrinkles are one of the issues that most concern people, particularly women when it comes to beauty issues. Many of us have always heard that nutrition, exercise and sleep can influence our skin, and that is true. But, these factors are not powerful enough to radically combat the wrinkles that will inevitably appear over the years.
There are also other factors that can contribute to the appearance of wrinkles, such as stress or anxiety and each person’s own genetics.
There are no miracles when it comes to wrinkles, but there are small gestures that can combat them: habits.
It is essential to have good, healthy habits in your daily life. Here are some tips to improving your daily routine:
- Drink enough water (at least 8 glasses a day). It is very important to keep your body hydrated and this will all be reflected in the skin.
- Try thinking about what you eat, and choose food wisely. Avocado and nuts like almonds and walnuts are the perfect anti-oxidant to avoid skin ageing.
- Sun protection is essential. We tend to forget this in the winter, as we think that the sun doesn’t affect us in the same way as in summer. However, you shouldn’t forget to protect yourself from the sun during this time of year, to prevent UVA rays from having a negative effect on your skin.
Nowadays it’s also possible to treat this imperfection, thanks to the advanced technology available to us. Scientific progress has placed an emphasis on aesthetic results to achieve the perfect balance. At Quirestética we know how important it is to give professional advice adapted to suit each patient.
One of the treatments that helps us fight those wrinkles is Botox.
Botox stands for “botulinum toxin”. It is injected into facial muscles to cause them to relax. This mitigates or even gets rid of all wrinkles on the face, such as crows’ feet, forehead lines and frown lines.
The treatment can tackle both incipient and deep wrinkles that have lasted for years.
What is the treatment like? How long does it last? The treatment lasts 15 minutes and you can start to see the effects after 24 hours. Botox is injected using very fine hypodermic needles, after using cold to desensitise the skin, so it is practically pain-free. A check-up is recommended after 2 weeks to assess whether any touch-ups are necessary. The effects of botulinum toxin last about 6 months, after which the treatment can be performed again.
In short, healthy eating, physical exercise and hydration all help you to improve your physical appearance. In addition, with help from an expert in the field, there is a range of supplementary treatments that can help treat the issue in question.
