It’s been a long winter for everyone, but rest assured, spring is just around the corner! With spring comes spring cleaning, making everything fresh and ready for the warmer months.
However, spring cleaning doesn’t just have to be about decluttering your house. Sometimes you have to do a little bit for yourself too. Beauty treatments can act as spring cleaning for your skin – just in time for when we’ll no longer have to hide our skin under coats and scarves. Keep reading for some of the best spring cleaning options for your skin and body!
The best start to begin is always with the basics. Facial muscle relaxers are among the most popular cosmetic facial procedures, and Botox is the most popular brand in this category. Cosmetic or plastic surgeons will use Botox to relax facial muscles, soften wrinkles, and give patients a younger, more rested appearance. Botox can also help smooth out lines and wrinkles, frown lines and crow’s feet.
Botox in the forehead can also reduce forehead frown lines. How long for botox to take effect? You will typically see results within 3-7 days of the treatment.
There is, of course, the question of how long does Botox last? Generally, Botox wears off in 2 months, with some effects of Botox lasting longer depending on patient and treatment type.
For example, Botox in the forehead will last for three months, while crow’s feet treatments can last for four months or longer. As you can tell, timing is essential when it comes to Botox. That’s why it’s best to get your treatments right before you think you’ll need them.
Alternative to Hyperhidrosis Surgical Treatment: Botox for Sweating
Here’s a quick Botox bonus: Did you know that you can use Botox to treat hyperhidrosis? Hyperhidrosis is when the body produces more sweat than an average person. In the hotter months, this can become an embarrassing problem.
Rather than surgically removing sweat glands or opting for a “sweat surgery,” you can use Botox injections to give yourself a minimally-invasive or non-invasive, temporary relief for hyperhidrosis. The facial relaxing properties of Botox can block the neurotransmissions that trigger your sweat glands, reducing the amount of sweat that comes to the surface of the skin. Since this is a temporary treatment, it’s another excellent reason to time your Botox treatments before the warmer months.
Acne Scar Treatment
Do you suffer from “maskne”? Face masks may be creating new acne for many. However, some folks may also feel the impact of acne scarring.
