Have you looked in the mirror lately and wondered who’s staring back at you? No matter how young you feel, wrinkles will inevitably appear. They’re an unfortunate part of aging, but there’s a way to turn back the hands of time.

Dr. Mehran Baheri and his team at Baheri Wellness Centre in Beverly Hills, California, trust in the anti-aging power of Botox® injections and are proud to offer them as a key player in their wrinkle-fight arsenal.

What causes wrinkles?

Wrinkles are the tell-tale sign that you’re getting older, but have you ever thought about what’s actually causing those pesky creases?

Your skin has certain proteins that help hold its shape. As you age, your skin loses these important structures and becomes much more fragile. This makes your skin increasingly susceptible to dynamic wrinkles.

Dynamic wrinkles are the wrinkles that happen as a result of repetitive movements and muscle contractions, typically around your eyes, your forehead, and your mouth. Think about all the times you’ve smiled, raised your eyebrows in surprise, or squinted against the sun. Younger skin can handle those repeated facial expressions, but older, less elastic skin can’t.

Botox specializes in stopping those dynamic wrinkles from forming.

How does Botox fight wrinkles?

Botox comes from a toxin found in the bacterium clostridium botulinum. In large doses, it can cause a paralytic illness called botulism, but when delivered in the correct dosage by a professional like Dr. Baheri, it’s a wrinkle-fighting force.

Dr. Baheri injects the Botox treatment exactly where you struggle with wrinkles the most. The solution prevents your facial muscles from contracting and causing wrinkles. You’ll notice that without constant movement, your wrinkles relax and soften.

Botox works best for the frown lines between your eyebrows, crow’s feet, lip lines, forehead lines, and even creases in your neck. Dr. Baheri determines the specific dosage and number of treatments you need depending on the severity of your wrinkles and where they’re located.

Your treatment won’t take longer than 10 minutes, and because the Botox syringe is so thin, you’ll likely find your sessions virtually painless.

Results will appear within 2 weeks, peak at 4-6 weeks, then fade at about 3-6 months. You’ll likely need maintenance treatments to keep seeing results.

Maximizing your results

While you’ll eventually need another Botox treatment, you want your wrinkles to stay away for as long as possible. Here are a few of your best Botox-boosting tips.

Practice good skincare

The worst thing you can do for your skin after getting Botox is to overexpose it to the sun. Sun damage can diminish your results and wreak extra havoc on your skin. Talk to Dr. Baheri about the best sunscreen and other skincare products that will support your new skin.

Keep up with your appointments

If you’re diligent about scheduling and keeping your Botox appointments, you’ll start to see even better results. You essentially retrain your muscles and notice fewer wrinkles as a result.

Maintain a healthy lifestyle

That goes for your mind and your body. If you’re stressed, you release a hormone called cortisol. This hormone can actually cause an inflammatory response and could cause your skin to lose even more of those shape-holding proteins.

A well-balanced diet combined with good sleep, reduced stress, and lots of water supports healthy, hydrated skin, and your overall health.

Don’t let wrinkles make your first impression for you. Show the world you youthful glow inside and out with Botox.
