Boxtox or Face Care which wins the anti-aging battle? – MTB today
The Guardian reported that in the UK plastic surgeons saw a 70% increase in consultations with a request for Botox in 2020. Many believe that Botox is the gold standard when it comes to protecting and reverse the signs of aging, but does Botox do more than a good skincare regimen when it comes to preventing aging?
“Botox procedures involve the injection of a bacterial toxin, botulinum toxin, into the muscles of deep facial expression to cause temporary and reversible paralysis of a muscle. This is to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles associated with muscle contraction. “
“However, what many don’t consider is that there are many signs of skin aging that are not caused by muscle contractions. For example, as we age, certain types of skin cells In addition, it is estimated that over 80% of the aging observed on the face is due to long-term exposure to UV rays and this is what leads to the majority of wrinkles, dryness, leathery texture, uneven pigmentation and sagging that appears with age. “
“Unfortunately, although there is recent evidence to suggest that Botox may have temporary skin rejuvenation activity, the scientific evidence proving this concept is neither comprehensive nor consistent.”
It could be argued that Botox and facial treatments complement each other when it comes to preventing aging. Botox can be used to target deep wrinkles associated with facial expressions, while advanced facial treatments using active ingredients can be used to preserve and protect cell types in skin tissue from age-related changes.
The effects of Botox are temporary (~ 3-6 months), but the effects of the right facials will only leave the skin stronger and more protected over time.
