Las Vegas is the center of glitz, glamor, and beauty. It is the entertainment center of illusion as well as making dreams come true. Those principles apply to the desire to look younger than our actual years just as much as having a fun nightlife against the Nevada sky.
It is important that you turn to experts for your Botox service in Las Vegas, so that your results are more magnificent than mistake. There are none who can bring that expertise better than the team at Sculpt Spa.
What is Botox, & Why Do I Need Botox Shots?
Botox is the commercial name for the botulism microbe. This is derived from the same strain which, when encountered in excess, causes botulism. When Botox is used for cosmetic or medical reasons, the Botox injection is administered in extremely small and safe and targeted doses. It has been approved by the FDA for years.
When Botox shots are injected into the facial muscles, Botox temporarily paralyzes and relaxes the muscles. It smooths out fine lines and wrinkles, especially around the eyes and in the forehead. Botox is also used to treat additional things like migraines, excessive sweating, painful muscle contractions, or overactive bladder.
Botox may even have a positive effect on mental disorders such as anxiety.
When used cosmetically, your Sculpt Spa Las Vegas expert uses a thin needle to inject small amounts of the botulinum toxin into very specific areas of your face. A professional knows the exact muscle to target for the desired effect, and the toxin only goes where they put it.
Usually no anesthetic is necessary, although a cold compress can help relieve any post-treatment discomfort. The Botox treatment is done in the luxury of Sculpt Spa and only takes about 10 minutes. You can resume your normal activities after the treatment. You should see results within a few days and can expect them to last a few months.
Read the Signs: 8 Signs Pointing Towards Botox Shots
Aging is a prime reason almost everyone will have a need for Botox eventually. There are factors in people’s lives where they may need Botox sooner than most, however. Here are eight things that could make you a Botox beneficiary before your time:
1. Sun and the misuse of sunscreen
Most people know that exposure to the sun can damage your skin. This damage leads to wrinkles appearing much sooner than they would otherwise. It is recommended to apply a cream with SPF or between 30 to 50 every day. Sun damage is cumulative so avoiding all ultraviolet (UV) exposure is important. UV radiation breaks down your skin’s connective tissue made of collagen and elastin fibers. There really is no such thing as a “healthy tan” if you want to prevent wrinkling. Do not rely on the SPF additives in makeup for your full protection. They are in those products for additional protection only. One of the biggest mistakes is neglecting to sunscreen key areas, and usually some of the ones that get Botox first: your neck, eye lids, lips and hands.
2. An inadequate skincare routine
Besides applying enough SPF protection, there are a number of details in a total skin care strategy that many people miss. Your skin needs to be exfoliated regularly to remove dead, wrinkle-causing skin. Watch out what soap you use, as one that is drying can be wrinkle-inducing. Hydrating moisturizer needs to be applied to refresh your skin then. A retinol, which comes from vitamin A is a good idea. It has the ability to increase your collagen production and keep you skin pumped. Throw out your used makeup brushes regularly—they become homes for dead skin cells and bacteria.
3. Sleeping wrong
One of the biggest sleeping mistakes is to not sleep at all. Having too much coffee wreaks havoc on your skin. The caffeine causes blood vessels to constrict and that cuts off your natural collagen production process. The second big mistake is to sleep on a high friction surface, like a cotton pillowcase. That surface can cause wrinkles on your face while you sleep. It is recommended that you only sleep on your back. Studies have tied sleeping on your face, or side to contribute to early wrinkling.
4. Unhealthy lifestyle
What you eat and how much you exercise are definite determiners of pre-mature wrinkling. Red meat and unhealthy snacks create more wrinkles while foods that are anti-inflammatory or have antioxidant properties improve the skin’s elasticity. High fat and processed foods ruin your skin’s tone and texture. Avoiding exercise limits opportunities to deliver oxygen to the skin and boost collagen production.
No big surprise, smoking is harmful to your skin. Chemically, it accelerates the skins normal aging process by damaging the collagen in your face. The action of smoking also creates pre-mature wrinkles so much that some are named for it: “smoker’s lines.”
6. Rubbing your eyes
The undereye area is highly susceptible to irritation and damage. The skin is thin and delicate and there are fragile blood vessels that it protects. Rubbing this area, especially frequently, can bring about premature wrinkling.
7. Habitual facial expressions
The muscles of your face start to mold to and “remember” repetitive movements you make. Each time you use a facial muscle, a groove forms beneath the surface of the skin. As your skin ages, it loses its flexibility and is no longer able to spring back in place. These grooves then become permanent features on your face such as crow’s feet, creases across the forehead and lines between the brows.
8. Dehydration and not sweating
Your skin needs water for all its rejuvenation functions. Water also aids with digestion, regulating your body temperature and all of these keep your skin nourished, healthy and hydrated from the inside. Studies have confirmed that skin physiology is highly affected by hydration, especially by water with lemon leaf balm extract which affects elasticity. Water is also key to flushing toxins out of your skin, which keeps it rejuvenated. Schedule an infrared sauna Las Vegas session at Sculpt Spa to cleanse your skin in a luxury setting.
