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.

3 Things To Know About Using Botox For Chest Wrinkles

If you dislike the sight of your chest because it has wrinkles and fine lines due to sun exposure and aging, Botox is one option to help you improve its appearance.

While Botox is commonly associated with facial injections, it has other functions that make it a valuable tool for improving your appearance. A benefit of using Botox is that the results are noticeable within a day or two. This makes it a great solution if a big event is right around the corner or if you just prefer rapid results.

Here's what you need to know about using Botox for your chest wrinkles. 

1. Botox Works Best on Certain Areas of the Chest

When you have a Botox injection, the Botox paralyzes the muscles so that they can't contract, smoothing and plumping the wrinkles. This means that if your wrinkles are in a location that isn't near a muscle, Botox won't improve their appearance.

One area where Botox injections are ideal is wrinkles located between the breasts. These cleavage wrinkles are located in close proximity to the pectoral muscles. Botox will provide smoother cleavage with minimal fine lines. 

Individuals who frequently roll their shoulders forward may have wrinkles on the upper portion of the chest due to these repeated movements. Since these wrinkles are often movement-related, Botox is also likely to improve their appearance. 

2. Botox Isn't Ideal for Large Areas

Whether or not Botox is a preferred treatment for your chest depends on the severity of your wrinkles and whether they're in a concentrated area. The cost of Botox depends on how many units you need, and larger areas (and more intense wrinkles) require more units. 

If you have wrinkles all over your chest, Botox likely isn't the best option for your first course of treatment. An alternative is to combine Botox with a treatment that targets large areas, like a chemical peel. You can then request injections for any chest wrinkles that are movement-related. 

3. Botox Requires Regular Injections

To maintain your results, plan on getting Botox injections every few months. The injections wear off over time, which means that you'll be able to make the movements that have contributed to your chest wrinkles.

One way to prolong the results from your injections is to train yourself to stop making the movements that have contributed to the wrinkles. For example, if you have chest wrinkles caused by scrunching your shoulders, maintaining a posture that focuses on holding your shoulders back can lengthen the time until these wrinkles reappear.
