Is Preventative Botox Worth It?

How Does Botox Work?

The muscles in your face are constantly contracting and tightening, causing the unwanted lines and wrinkles on your face to form. Botox is a neuromodulator that is injected into these muscles to help reduce their activity, helping to decrease the movement that causes unwanted lines, wrinkles and creases. Don’t worry, though, the injection doesn’t affect the entire face, allowing you to still make natural facial expressions post-treatment. 

This FDA-cleared skin rejuvenation treatment is simple, typically taking 10-20 minutes with little to no associated discomfort. And while Botox is typically viewed as a treatment for those of an older age, it’s actually beneficial for all ages. Younger patients can benefit from preventative Botox, which can help limit the natural signs of aging as early as in your 20s.

Help Prevent Aging Before It Starts 

Don’t just combat the signs of aging—avoid them! Getting Botox at an earlier age, especially in your 20s, can have greater benefits than treatments later on. Preventative Botox can help you address aging before it starts, limiting the muscle movements that cause lines and wrinkles to form. The earlier you slow down these muscle movements, the more likely you are to decrease the signs of aging later in life. Plus, when used preventatively, Botox typically involves less injections, helping you save money.

Preventative Botox can only be used to help prevent lines and wrinkles if they don’t already exist, which is why treatments at a younger age tend to find greater success. If the creases are too deep, Botox may not be as effective. Remember, though, Botox can be beneficial at all ages—it just may take more units per treatment and more frequent treatments.
