Botox has been around for a long time and has been gaining in popularity, ever since. People who never would have considered the treatment a decade ago now swear by it.
But Botox isn’t just for addressing existing lines and wrinkles. It’s also highly effective for preventing their formation. Preventative Botox can stop wrinkles in their tracks before they get a toehold.
Let’s talk about preventative Botox and how people are using it to stop wrinkles in their tracks.
Some believe that wrinkles form because of the passage of time. But that’s only partially true. Lines and wrinkles begin to form because of our facial expressions. Environmental factors play a role in the quality and elasticity of your skin, but wrinkles form primarily due to the way we use our faces to communicate emotions to those around us.
Every day, we’re frowning, smiling, grimacing and making any number of expressions using our facial muscles. That’s just life and you can’t walk through this life expressionless. People will think there’s something profoundly wrong with you, if you walk around with no expression on your face.
There’s a better way and that way is preventative Botox. Because Botox inhibits the movement of facial muscles in key regions, you can halt the advance of lines and wrinkles with strategically administered injections, using this therapy.
Many people associate Botox with addressing signs of aging and people still turn for Botox to help with that.
Today, more and more frequently, younger people are receiving Botox therapy to prevent lines from forming. But it’s a balancing act.
First, it’s important to consult with a variety of practitioners to find one with sufficient training and experience to strategically administer this injectable. It’s also important to consider that starting too young may work against you.
At Ethos Spa, Skin & Laser Center, we advise that people start injections in their late 20s. Starting earlier is an extreme response to aging which hasn’t even had a chance to begin yet. Enjoy your youth. You really don’t need to start at 18 for preventative Botox to be effective.
And it’s not just women who are using Botox to prevent lines and wrinkles. Men are doing it, too. To remain competitive in the job market, men know they need to look the part. They need to present an image of vigor and competence.
And some men just want to maintain their youthful appearance for as long as possible, for the sake of looking their best.
Preventative Botox is a worthy alternative to invasive procedures. By limiting the range of motion of facial muscles, it stops wrinkles in their tracks.
