Botox Treatment and Lifestyle Changes for a Smoother Forehead

Posted by January 30th, 2021 in Face

Frowning often, genetics, and aging itself can all contribute to the premature development of forehead wrinkles. Fortunately, Botox treatment is an extremely reliable solution to this issue. As simple as it is safe, the procedure is known to reduce or eliminate forehead lines, crow’s feet, frown lines, and other creases in the facial skin.

Your lifestyle also has an immense impact on skin health. Therefore, in addition to undergoing Botox treatment, you should make the following tweaks to your daily habits:

Avoid prolonged sun exposure

Ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun are known to damage skin. Prolonged sun exposure has, in fact, been associated with premature skin aging, dark spots, and even skin cancer, so it’s best to limit your time in the sun as much as possible whether or not you’ve already undergone Botox treatment. If sun exposure is unavoidable, apply sunscreen, SPF-15 or higher, for protection.

Manage stress

Strong negative emotions caused by stress encourage behaviors, such as the creasing of the brow, that contribute to the wrinkling of the forehead. To keep stress under control, adopt stress management techniques such as meditation, yoga, aromatherapy, and diaphragmatic breathing exercises. You should also have healthy diet, get enough sleep, exercise regularly, and perhaps consult a therapist. All these strategies, when combined with Botox treatment, will give you the beautiful skin you crave.

Keep hydrated

Wrinkles are more visible when you have dry skin. Keeping your skin hydrated makes forehead lines less conspicuous, so drink no less than eight glasses of water, 8 ounces each, on daily basis. Drinking more is advised whenever you exercise or expose yourself to excess sunlight.

Maintain a balanced diet

A 2007 study demonstrated the vital role a healthy diet plays in skin health maintenance. Vitamin C and omega-3 fatty acid, for instance, reduced the risk of developing dry skin in American women aged 40 and up. Vitamin C also lowered the possibility of skin degeneration. In addition, taking hydrolyzed Collagen and hylaronic acid orally can provide the raw materials so the body can keep up with the body’s demands particularly as one ages and is unable to make it reliably on your own. This keeps the skin firm with less wrinkles and appear more hydrated. On the other hand, a high-carb, high-fat diet increased the risk of skin atrophy and wrinkle occurrence.

Quit smoking

In addition to lung cancer, coronary disease, and emphysema, smoking can also lead to untimely skin aging and wrinkling. A 2008 study indicated that tobacco smoke contains chemicals that impair the skin’s ability to produce collagen, a protein that maintains our youthful appearance by promoting skin elasticity.

It’s important to remember there’s no magic formula that will rid ourselves forever of the signs of aging. However, with Botox treatment and the above tips, you can enjoy a younger, rejuvenated appearance no matter your age.
