Feeling and Looking Younger

After I finished having my kids, I knew that I wanted a mommy makeover. My stomach was in terrible shape, my arms looked completely destroyed, and my legs had been carrying weight for years. I wanted a full body overhaul, so I started by doing what I could to look and feel younger. I started exercising each and every day, and then I worked hard on doing my hair and makeup better. It was amazing to see the difference it made, but I wanted something more. I consulted with a cosmetic surgeon, and I scheduled the surgery that changed my life for the better.

How To Make Botox Work For You

Anti-aging creams, sunscreen, and adequate hydration can help you keep your skin supple and soft. If you're really serious about maintaining youthful skin, you should also consider additional cosmetic procedures. Botox injections can smooth out minor wrinkles and expression lines. These injections can be administered by a dermatologist, dentist, or cosmetic surgeon. Here are three tips that will help you make Botox work for you:

1. Speak to friends who already get Botox

You can learn a lot about Botox from doing some basic research online. However, most articles about Botox are fact-based. If you want a more subjective account of Botox treatment, you'll probably have to find someone that you know personally. If any of your friends take advantage of Botox treatment, seek them out to ask about their experience. Offer to buy them a coffee and sit down to have a candid conversation about Botox. Ask any questions whose answers you'd find helpful. For instance, you may want to find out how many units of Botox they receive and where their doctor places their injections.

2. Make room in your budget

Botox works best with continued treatment. One Botox procedure will give you the results you seek, but the effects are not permanent. Over time, your Botox will wear off, and you will gain full use of your facial muscles again. This is good news for anyone who's uncertain about their first Botox treatment, but it does mean that you'll need to return to your Botox practitioner for additional injections if you want to maintain your results.

Most people need additional injections every four months, but the time frame will be different for each person. Over time, your facial muscles can atrophy due to consistent Botox use, which means you may be able to wait as long as six months between treatments. Make room in your budget for Botox to keep yourself looking fresh and youthful at all times.

3. Use Botox before you think you need it

If you're in your twenties or early thirties, you may be putting off Botox because you don't notice any significant wrinkles on your face. Actually, it's best to start Botox treatment before you think you need it. Botox can prevent deep wrinkles from forming by softening the expressions you make. It's much simpler and cheaper to prevent wrinkles than to try to combat them later. Use Botox for preventative skincare, and reap the rewards later.
