Botox is well-known as a treatment for fine lines and wrinkles that form when you make certain expressions. However, increasing numbers of people are choosing to use Botox earlier in life. Whereas it was once mainly a treatment for people in their 40s to 60s, it is now popular among those in their 20s and 30s as well. Instead of putting off this popular treatment, this may now be a good time to learn more about it.
Botox Isn’t Only For Old People
Using Botox early in life is usually referred to as preventative Botox. A few years ago, people may have started coming in for treatments in their late 30s. However, nowadays, many men and women are opting for initial treatments even earlier than this. If you are in your 20s and 30s, you may be wondering what all the hype is about and whether it is a good solution for you.
Dermal Filler Face Treatment
Botox injections work by paralyzing small muscles at the surface of the face that causes expression lines. In your 20s, you most likely do not see the results of these expressions on your face. However, by the time you are in your 40s and 50s, these constant expressions have most likely etched permanent lines into your skin. Once these lines are in your skin, they will not be impossible to treat, but they may be difficult to treat. Therefore, preventative treatments can negate the need for future more difficult and more in-depth treatments.
Plus, preventative Botox can help to “retrain” the facial muscles. Facial posture refers to how the muscles in the face are held. Poor facial posture can lead to a weakening of the skin.
When you have preventative Botox treatments, you will likely not need large or extensive treatments. Just a few simple injections of a small amount of Botox will leave you with great results that still allow you to experience aesthetically beautiful and natural-looking facial expressions. Botox also works well with other topical anti-aging treatments to create a multi-pronged treatment plan that will keep your skin smooth, youthful and wrinkle-free for years.
