Even supermodels need a little help in combating the signs of aging and maintaining smooth skin, and they aren’t afraid to admit it. In fact, one runway superstar, who happens to be a Victoria’s Secret Angel, has revealed her love of Botox.
Isabeli Fontana is a 35-year-old model from Brazil and credits Botox with prolonging her career and relaxing wrinkles that can quickly age the face. But that’s not all. She also believes that everyone could benefit from a little Botox in the lives.
Here’s how Botox can help you achieve supermodel smooth skin.
What Is Botox and How Does It Work?
Botox is a cosmetic injectable that blocks nerve signals and inhibits muscle contraction. As a result, it limits the facial expressions, like squinting, frowning, and raising eyebrows, that can cause lines to develop and worsen over time.
What Areas Can Botox Treat?
While Brazilian stunner Isabeli Fontana, doesn’t reveal which areas of her face have been enhanced with Botox, the product is FDA-approved for use on moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines.
Other parts of the face and body can be treated off-label by a highly skilled and experienced injector.
When’s the Right Time to Get Botox?
Botox is a very inclusive procedure that can benefit a wide range of patients, but there isn’t a pre-determined age for a patient to start getting injections.
While some men and women begin Botox injections in their 20s to correct existing lines and preventing future ones from forming, most patients become concerned with wrinkles and seek treatment in their 30s and 40s.
What Are Other Ways That Patients Can Achieve Smooth Skin?
According to this Victoria’s Secret Angel, laser treatments are another way that she beautifies and rejuvenates her skin.
These treatments use light-based energy, radiofrequency and ultrasound to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, eliminate discoloration, tighten and lift saggy skin, improve skin tone and texture, and zap away acne scars and other imperfections.
They are often performed in conjunction with Botox to revitalize skin and produce natural results.
