Signs of aging are a part of life. Aging happens to the healthiest of us. Volume loss in the face, fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin are all signs of aging. Luckily, there are ways to curb the aging process by utilizing non-surgical methods to help our outward appearance match the youthful spirit we feel inside.
Dr. Henry Chen, MD is a board-certified cosmetic surgeon that is skilled in both surgical and non-surgical procedures, especially Botox Injections Santa Monica.
Botox Injections, otherwise called Botulinum toxin is among the best treatments for wrinkles. The underlying facial muscles weaken so they don’t pull as firmly. The human face has about 20 muscles which are in charge of motion and facial expression. Muscle motion pulls on the overlying skin resulting in unsightly creases.
Genetics, gravity, lifestyle such as sun exposure, smoking, and diet, all play major roles in the rate at which we age as individuals. While surgery is always an option, it is important to be educated on all of the amazing and innovative non-surgical options that are out there today. Our Santa Monica Botox Injections are of the purest form and can help combat the aging process and help fade fine lines and wrinkles.
Youthful skin is elastic and can resist this pull with no formation of wrinkles. Yet, over time as skin loses its elasticity, wrinkles grow. There are several formulas of botulinum toxins accessible today including Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. Of these, the most well known is Botox Injections Santa Monica. When used appropriately, they can prevent the formation of wrinkles or help wrinkles that have formed tighten and disappear.
