It is normal for the first signs of aging to start manifesting in your 30s. You can notice a few lines and wrinkles here and there—especially crow’s feet—but usually, they are not well pronounced. For many people, distinct signs of aging like the glabellar furrows and crow’s feet start to appear in their late 30s and early 40s. Considering deep, permanent wrinkles are not likely to hit in at this age, this is probably the best time to prevent wrinkles with BOTOX® at our spa in San Antonio.
Factors That Lead to Wrinkles
Wrinkles and other signs of aging are natural occurrences that will eventually set in. However, the age at which you develop wrinkles can have a correlation to your lifestyle. A significant number of people develop premature wrinkles as a result of life habits. Here are some habits that can lead to premature wrinkles:
A Stressful Life
Stress is unhealthy in every aspect and it is one of the primary culprits of premature aging. The skin has a natural barrier that protects it and helps maintain rejuvenation. Stress slows down this barrier.
The effect of stress is usually very visible on the face too. Constant worrying and scowling creates fine lines and wrinkles on the face that can easily become permanent as a result of muscle stretching. To avoid further muscle activity that can cause deep-rooted wrinkling, periodic treatment at our med spa in San Antonio with BOTOX® to relax affected muscles and prevent wrinkles is a good idea.
Smoking and Drinking
The body requires maintenance to function properly. We need nutrients, enough oxygen, and constant hydration to stay healthy and youthful. Smoking and drinking are certainly not good for the body. Drinking significantly dehydrates the body (about 75 percent of the body is made up of water which means everything relies on water to function). Smoking depletes the body of oxygen which restricts the skin’s ability to rejuvenate.
Spending too much time in the sun certainly doesn’t help your skin. The sun’s UV rays are harmful enough to dry up your skin and make it susceptible to wrinkling.
Preventing Wrinkles with BOTOX®
Your 30s are also when you are typically at the peak of your career which means it can be difficult to avoid some of the things mentioned like stress or sun exposure. However, you do not have to wait around for wrinkles to form and turn into permanent fissures when you can do something about it.
BOTOX® works by relaxing the muscles susceptible to wrinkling. Since your 30s are when you start developing minor wrinkles, it’s only understandable that this is the best time to prevent wrinkles with BOTOX®.
