Botox & Dysport for the Holidays!

The holidays are upon us, and the wiser ones among us have already gone out and bought some larger belts.

But if you’re interested in maintaining that slim, trim, and radiant look throughout the holidays, you might consider treating yourself to some pre-Holiday Botox¬†or Dysport.

Now is as good a time as any to jump on the bandwagon, and here are three reasons why.

1. Botox Has a Cumulative Effect

If you haven’t started Botox treatment yet, you should know that Botox is a procedure that works better the earlier you start it.

For one, wrinkles are the result of lost collagen volume. Fissures form in areas where the muscle contracts — and stopping those fissures as early as possible prevents wrinkles from forming.

But besides that, Botox also has been shown to have a progressive relaxant effect on the muscles. Essentially, receiving Botox or Dysport teaches the muscles to relax.

2. It Might Help You Avoid the Holiday Blues

And we’re not just talking about the mood improvement that comes from increased self-esteem.

Allergan is currently pushing for the FDA to approve Botox as an anti-depressant, because of speculated effect where Botox prevents frown muscles from sending ‘sad’ signals to the brain.

Many people suffer from seasonal affective disorder, where less sunlight in the holidays can lead to gloomy feelings. It’s possible holiday Botox can counteract that.

3. Botox Is the Safest Cosmetic Treatment You Can Possibly Get

Many people shy away from Botox knowing that it’s a neurotoxin that paralyzes certain facial muscles. But be aware that the dosages used in Botox are incredibly safe, and, moreover, the idea of “frozen face” is a myth when in the hands of a trained professional.

A capable Botox practitioner knows how to use the product to help you retain your youth without loss of expression.
