Undoing the effects of too much sun in Coral Gables

Florida is known as the Sunshine State for a good reason. Bright sunny skies and an active, outdoor lifestyle make it one of the most desirable places to live in the world. But prolonged exposure to the sun can take a toll on a person’s skin, creating unwanted wrinkles that can appear to add years to a person’s age.

One of the most common ways of combatting wrinkled skin is through the use of Botox and other related remedies such as Dysport and Juvederm. Botox is derived from botulinum toxin, and these products work by blocking the nerves that contract muscles, thus softening the appearance of wrinkles.

Botox can work wonders as long as you don’t go overboard and expect too much from treatments. It’s best to go slow and aim for a natural and relaxed look for wrinkles that are not completely set in your face. This means you should focus on wrinkles that come about as you are smiling, frowning or making other facial movements.

One of the best things about using Botox is that it can help you achieve a better cosmetic look without surgery. It is minimally invasive and is especially effective with wrinkles around the forehead, neck, and mouth. It can raise a person’s brow, making them look less tired, as well as smooth out age wrinkles that can also have a negative impact on a youthful looking face.

You also need to understand that using Botox can produce side effects in some people. This may include headaches, bruising at the site of the injection, especially if you’re taking aspirin or ibuprofen. The flip side of this is that Botox may actually reduce or eliminate migraines in some people, a true benefit to chronic headache sufferers.

Botox is also known to be useful in combatting excessive sweating, known as hyperhidrosis. Normally, this condition is treated with prescription antiperspirants, and can have varying results. However, Botox has been shown to help balance the hyperhidrosis problem for several months, bringing much-needed relief to sufferers.
