It is a fact of life that as we age, we can begin to suffer from wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes, on the forehead and so on. Until some years ago, this was just something that we had to accept as a part of growing older, although it can make many people feel embarrassed and can lead to depression.
However, today there are many ways that we can now deal with wrinkles and restore those more youthful looks once again. One of these is the use of injectables such as Botox services available in San Mateo.
Now, wrinkles can be caused by a combination of factors, some of which you can control and others which you can’t. As we get older, our skin becomes less elastic and more fragile. Natural oils begin to dry up and make the skin look wrinkled. The fat in the deeper layers of the skin decreases, leading to sagging skin and wrinkles.
Exposure to ultraviolet light also hastens the onset of wrinkles. It breaks down the collagen and elastin fibers in the deeper layer of the dermis and the skin loses strength and flexibility. If you spent a lot of time sunbathing in your youth, that will not have helped. Smoking can also accelerate the aging process. Even if you have smoked for many years, giving up smoking will help to improve skin tone and texture.
But staying out of the sun, especially at midday, and stopping smoking, on their own won’t solve the issue of wrinkles, so you need some help. And in this case, something such as Botox services in San Mateo will do the trick.

Botox is an injectable that has an effect on the nerves in your skin. It is the first, and only, FDA approved treatment for moderate to severe frown lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet. A treatment with Botox is quick and easy, and you can usually begin to see results within a few days.
