If you think that Botox® treatments are for those who are over 40, think again. Although Botox® injections are popular among men and women who are aged 45 and beyond, the treatment is not exclusive for those individuals alone.
If you notice an early formation of fine lines, crow’s feet, or laugh lines in your face, even if you consider them as a non-issue, you can choose to have Botox® to curb them from further development.
There are now many individuals in their mid to late 20s who opt to have the treatment, not because they have deep creases and wrinkles, but to prevent them from turning into a major problem once they hit their mid 30s or 40s.
Indeed, there are many benefits of Botox® treatments, and below are just some of the positives if you choose to have the treatment earlier:
- Slows down the development of wrinkles and fine lines
While there is no medicine that can stop the natural aging process, there are treatments that can slow it down, and Botox® is one of them. This injectable treatment works by inhibiting the contraction of facial muscles. As a result, this delays the development of fine lines and wrinkles, and prevents the permanent fixtures of creases in the face.
- Treats fine lines easier than 10 years later
The old proverb, “Prevention is better than a cure” also rings true, especially in the beauty industry. Aside from age, external factors can speed up the signs of aging.
Sun exposure, free radicals, and poor diet are just some of the elements that contribute to hyperpigmentation, skin dryness, and many others. Over exposure of these elements can increase the number of wrinkles on the face before you reach the age of 35, and may become difficult to treat once you pass the age of 40.
Given the reputation of Botox® in facial rejuvenation, a treatment can certainly decrease the number of wrinkles in the face, and possibly make it easy for the injection to work as an anti-aging remedy once you reach 50.
- Helps you save money
From a practical perspective, getting Botox® injections while you’re still in your mid 20s can help you save money in the long run. The cost of Botox® injections to treat wrinkles that have developed excessively all over the face can reach up to $2,000 per year or more. Whereas if you use Botox® to fix minor lines and prevent further wrinkle development, you could save up to $1,000 per year.
Your decision to use Botox® as a preventative treatment can help you enjoy more benefits than the three mentioned above. To learn more about Botox® and its effectiveness as an anti-aging remedy, consult with one of our board-certified doctors at Plastic Surgery Center of Nashville.
