You need to start doing Botox now

If you think you are still young to get Botox, then think again.  Botox is a good investment that you should start while you are still young.  Just like healthy eating and good exercise, Botox is more of prevention rather than cure. 


One of the reasons why we get wrinkles is due to the movement of facial muscles.  With constant movement of the muscles, the more wrinkles will develop over time.  The more you smile, the more lines will appear around your eyes.  The more years you constantly raise your brows, the deeper the folds will develop over your forehead.  There will come a time when these lines will be permanent.  Even if you don’t frown, there’s still that line in between your brows.  By the time you reach 60 years old, you may look like 70 already needing a face lift!


Botox prevents wrinkles secondary to facial movement, such as repeated smiling, frowning, and raising of the eyebrows.  It does its job by temporarily paralyzing the facial muscles to lessen the crease on your face.  Don’t get me wrong, your face will still move… it really depends on the dosage being injected.  A balanced Botox injection will result in a younger fresher face.  It basically slows down aging by preventing those permanent wrinkles especially on the forehead and around the eyes.  


So instead of paying for a surgical lift one-time big time on your 60’s, you’re doing an installment basis of Botox injection starting at your 30’s.  The profit that you earn is basically looking like 45 when you do reach 60!  Isn’t that a great investment?!
