COVID-19 Stress Causes Wrinkles, Can Be Overcome With BOTOXby DAVIS BROWN PRC Agency
In the era of COVID-19, as we spend more of our days with furrowed brows wondering when we will finally be allowed to leave our homes, or stressing over when life will return to normal once again, fine lines and wrinkles are more rapidly setting into our facial expressions than ever before. When the stress from the coronavirus catches up to your skin and face, come visit Aesthetica Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center, located in Leesburg, Virginia.

Since the top of your head is the starting point for expressing almost all of your emotions in your face, the raising or lowering of eyebrows - which create expressions of care, shock, anxiety, or excitement - eventually engrave themselves into your temple. Particularly through times of heightened anxiety, such as the current coronavirus outbreak, wrinkles and fine lines begin to creep in and stay for good.
Forehead wrinkles are a natural part of aging, however, if you do not appreciate their appearance, or they show up younger than you would like thanks to coronavirus stress, the team at Aesthetic has four important suggestions to help you minimize or remove their presence: hydration, chemical peels, and injections such as BOTOX.
Especially while we’re living less active lives, it can be easy to become dehydrated due to the change of routine. If you are drying up on the inside, your skin will reveal this lack of moisture on the outside. The drier your skin is, the more likely it is that wrinkles will begin to form, so make getting the optimal amount of hydration a priority, even if you’re unable to go to the gym or live your life as you typically do.
Once the coronavirus quarantine is finally over, consider opting for a chemical peel to liven your skin back up and refresh your youthful appearance to retroactively deal with the wrinkles you gained during the shut down. During the chemical peel procedure, alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), trichloroacetic acids (TCAs), or phenols attack the external layer of the skin, revealing a less-damaged (and less aged) lower layer of skin.
A more serious option, for those who perhaps handled quarantine less successfully is a forehead lift. A forehead lift is a long term approach to some wrinkles that are not able to be treated by fillers like BOTOX ®. The forehead lift (likewise called a browlift or browplasty) is a cosmetic surgery which both boosts drooping eyebrows that block vision and gets rid of frown lines that run across the forehead (lines that might be too deep for BOTOX ® to efficiently deal with) developing an extra youthful appearance.
Finally, injectables are the ideal option for those whose wrinkles have begun to set in due to recent stressors such as unexpected pandemics. BOTOX® is one of the most reliable in-office procedures to stop any wrinkles you already have from getting worse. BOTOX® obstructs the nerve signals that tell your facial muscular tissues to contract which stops lines from sinking in further. You'll need to obtain injections every 3 to 6 months to maintain your wrinkle-free results.
Some techniques to decrease the appearance of forehead wrinkles function better than others. While moisturizers, serums, and make-up can supply temporary solutions, the only method to actually accomplish a lasting and youthful result is through reliable cosmetic procedures such as a forehead lift, chemical peel, or BOTOX.
To investigate your options, talk to a plastic surgeon in your area, such as Dr. Philip Chang, who is Board Certified in Plastic Surgery and has comprehensive expertise, training, and experience. Your surgeon should be someone who listens to you, explains the treatment and potential consequences completely, and who concentrates on ensuring a natural-looking outcome with minimally intrusive strategies. That is precisely the goal of the entire team at Aesthetica cosmetic surgery and laser center. You can call Aesthetica Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center at (703)-729-5553, or schedule a consultation online.
