Botox continues to be the most common cosmetic procedure performed today because of its proven effectiveness and quick process. However, the only thing that has changed over the years is that its users are getting younger. The idea of “preventative Botox” has gained popularity recently with users as young as their twenties.
How Can It Help with Early Signs of Aging?
As we age, our skin loses elasticity and the expressions we make may begin to create lines. For instance, some younger users may begin to see horizontal lines across the forehead from scrunching those muscles. Botox will make it physically impossible to make this movement, therefore, preventing future wrinkles. This may also help re-train your muscles to not make that expression while thinking or concentrating. Without this repetitive scrunching, you will be left with a more relaxed appearance without looking frozen.
How Young Is Too Young?
While nobody should feel pressure to start anti-aging treatments in their twenties, there are some younger patients that can benefit from a few treatments. If you are in your twenties and do not see lines left over from frowning or scrunching your face, then you probably don’t need to start just yet. Although Botox is a great preventative measure, the time to start treatments is going to be different for everyone.
