Everything is bigger and better in Texas. That is one of Texas’ favorite slogans and it fits in numerous areas. Where can you get some of the prettiest landscapes, the best BBQ, the greatest talents and the most genuine, Southern hospitality anywhere in the nation but Texas? We are proud of our state, proud of our culture and we let it be known. There are a few things about Texas that do take a toll on our bodies and skin however. We cannot always control how life affects our skin but thanks to modern medicine and advancements in the field of dermatology, we can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with Austin Botox. So while living in Texas brings us the greatest pride and joy, here are some ways this state affects our skin.

Stress

A new survey examined the stress levels in all 50 states in various stress related areas. Texas ranked #8 in the Top 10 States with the Most Family Related Stress. What happens when we are stressed? Typical, visible signs of stress in our faces involve us pursing our lips, furrowing our eyebrows and frowning. Over time, these repeated facial expressions create fine lines and deep wrinkles in your face that can age you. But with Botox, you can diminish all the stress lines. By injecting Botox into these problem spots in your face, you can fill in and plump up these areas. Contrary to rumor, Botox will not make your skin feel numb or give you a “puffy” look, it is completely natural, smoothing out the troublesome signs of stress. So while we cannot remove the stress from your life, we can at least help you with the visible signs on your face.

Sun

Texas is one of the hottest states in the nation. It is joked that Texas has 4 seasons—almost summer, summer, still summer and Christmas. The seasons in Texas do not vary as much compared to other states. Texans are used to lots of sunshine, high temperatures and very little snow, if ever. Because of that, the opportunity for year round sun exposure is great. This can also pose a problem. While sun is healthy for our bodies, too much sun exposure can take a toll on our skin. Excessive sun can cause premature aging, in fact, UV rays can account for 80% of premature aging. These UV rays are hard on skin and can lead to reduced skin elasticity and a degradation of skin texture. Botox can improve these signs of sun caused aging. Focusing on the fine lines in your face, Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. It does not disable that muscle but helps it to relax, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften. Botox in Austin can do a great deal to reduce the fine lines related to sun exposure.

Diet

You have heard the saying, “You are what you eat” and that is never more true for your skin. Your skin is a reflection of your diet. Texans are known for our love of everything fried and that does not bode well for our skin, wrinkles and aging. Another thing that is not good for the skin is alcohol consumption. Texas ranks at #11 for highest beer consumption in the nation. Alcohol and poor diet choices are not helpful when it comes to retaining youthful skin. While vegetables and fruits full of antioxidants are shown to decrease the rapid decline in aging, we may not get enough of these in our diets. Botox will give your confidence a boost, help you feel younger and fill in age lines.
