Although for most men and women in Denver, BOTOX® is primarily thought of as a treatment for eliminating existing wrinkles, more young people are turning toward this injectable as a preventative treatment for blocking wrinkle formation in the first place.*
Since BOTOX® Cosmetic works by paralyzing the muscle movement that contributes to the creation of dynamic wrinkles, it makes sense that using BOTOX® in your 20s might prevent those wrinkles from getting a chance to form at all.* Can preventative BOTOX® offer a solution for keeping wrinkles at bay?*
The Progression of Aging
Our practice has seen an increase in BOTOX® patients in their 20s. Although not everyone is on board with the idea of long-term BOTOX® use, there’s one point that all plastic surgeons can agree upon: a proactive approach to minimizing the signs of aging is far more effective when started earlier in life, compared to trying to eliminate deep furrows and wrinkles later on.
Yet, no matter how many advanced cosmetic techniques are available to minimize the signs of aging in your face and body, there’s no stopping the hands of time completely. BOTOX® and other preventative measures may keep you looking younger longer than you would have without any treatments, but nothing can totally prevent the aging process.
In addition to BOTOX® and other cosmetic procedures, taking good care of your skin and never skipping the sunscreen can keep your skin young and healthy well into your later years. Once the more advanced signs of aging do make their appearance, rest assured that there are always surgical procedures available to help remove a few of those years from your reflection.*
