When most people think of Botox, they think of people in their 40s and 50s working to reduce the wrinkles and lines that have developed on their face over time. It’s seen as a sort of ‘fountain of youth,’ which helps people who want to reclaim the way their face looked in their younger days.
However, there is another new trend in Botox, which involves people using the treatment in a uniquely rejuvenating way. Younger people, in their 20s and 30s are taking a preventative approach to aging, by getting Botox treatments before wrinkles and lines develop on their face.
What Exactly Is Botox?
Botox is the world’s most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment, and works by temporarily relaxing the muscles in your face, which helps to reduce wrinkles and lines. These wrinkles and lines are caused by the repetitive movements of your facial muscles. Examples of these movements include smiling, laughing, or frowning. The resulting lines include crow’s feet, wrinkles across your forehead, around your nose bridge, and along the sides of your mouth.
Most people get regular Botox treatments as a way to continually keep wrinkles away. A common practice is booking appointments a few times a year, similar to how often you go to the dentist. Regular treatment like this will keep your facial appearance consistent and rejuvenated.
How Does Preemptive Botox Help?
The traditional use of Botox, as outlined above, is to reduce wrinkles from your face, after years of accumulation. However, more and more people are using Botox in a new way: to prevent wrinkles before they happen.
By leveraging the power of Botox to relax the muscles in and around your face before lines appear, you are able to limit the long term development that results in lasting wrinkles. Doctors use these treatments strategically, because it is more effective to prevent wrinkles and lines before they occur.
