While many think of Botox as a procedure to be done in your 40s or 50s, it is actually a great option for younger patients who wish to prevent signs of aging or those who want to diminish fine lines. Wrinkles have many different causes, one being repeated movement of certain muscles. As a result, many people in their 20s and 30s already have apparent lines in their forehead, between their eyebrows, or around their eyes. Preventative Botox can treat these kinds of wrinkles and prevent them from forming in the future.
In the past few years, the number of Botox treatments received by patients aged 20-29 has gone up 28% as young men and women seek to look their best. However, it is important that young patients go to an experienced injector for results that are natural-looking. At Re:Nu 180 Med Spa we offer preventative Botox in Southington, CT. Come in today for a consultation and see why our younger patients love Botox!
What is preventative Botox?
Botox is the most popular cosmetic treatment of its kind, and for good reason! The treatment is minimally invasive and produces profound results that last for several months. Millions of people have reaped the benefits of the treatment and avoided certain signs of aging. Now young adults are starting to benefit from the treatment too!
Botox works as a preventative treatment by slowing the muscles in different areas of the face that often cause wrinkles. Repeated use of these muscles when making certain expressions can cause wrinkles or worsen existing ones.
These areas include:
- Between the eyebrows
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
Because wrinkles are usually not as prominent in younger patients, less units of Botox may be needed when the treatment is preventative.
What will my preventative Botox treatment be like?
During your consultation our medical director will determine how many units of Botox you need based on your existing lines and wrinkles. Most of our Southington patients find that there is minimal or no discomfort with the treatment, as the needles used for Botox are very small.
Treatments are fast and can be done in the convenience of your lunch break. Most patients go back to work or their normal activities right away as side effects are minimal and generally resolve shortly after treatment.
Are there any risks to Preventative Botox?
When done by an experienced injector, like our medical director, there are very few risks associated with preventative Botox treatments. In fact, clinical studies have shown that regular Botox treatments have an effect on the formation of lines and wrinkles. If you are concerned about risks or side effects, we are happy to answer any questions and concerns you may have.
What are results like?*
Results are not apparent immediately and most Southington patients begin to see results a few days after treatment. Best results are generally seen 2 weeks post-treatment. Typically, Botox treatments are repeated every 3 to 6 months. However, preventative Botox treatments may be spaced out more than normal Botox treatments, depending on your desired results.
The treatment may help prevent formation of future wrinkles and signs of aging caused by repeated muscle movement. Another benefit of preventative Botox is that once it wears off, wrinkles are often less prominent as the muscles have been used less.
During your consultation, our medical director can give you a better idea of the results you can expect and how often you should repeat treatments.
