Botox was originally used to treat wrinkles and fine lines which occur due to aging. But right now more and more young people are using it to prevent the signs of aging especially on the face. The real question is does preventative Botox really work and does it stop wrinkles from ever appearing?
Botox is approved for persons who are above the age of 18 years. In late twenties and early thirties you may not have wrinkles yet but you may notice that there are some fine lines which begin to appear.
Botox works by relaxing facial muscles which cause lines when you frown or smile. The treatment usually lasts for about four months. Preventative Botox is used to prevent wrinkles before they appear. The face muscles work just like any other muscle in the body thus when you work them out more they will get more defined. Working out your face happens whenever smile, frown, laugh, squint or raise your eyebrows.
Regular Botox causes muscles to atrophy and this prevents the development of deep lines and wrinkles which are associated with strong facial muscles. So yes, preventative Botox works and it’s a real thing.
The more you age the more your face will have had time to work out, hence when you wait until your 40s to get Botox injections it will be more like trying to reverse the signs of aging rather than preventing them. One of the advantages of starting Botox early and on a regular basis is you will never get to have a deep furrow as the muscles will not get so thick and hypertrophied.
As with every cosmetic treatment, there are pros and cons and preventative Botox injections are no exception.
As long as you are over 18 years old you can get preventative Botox injections and a good doctor should know how to treat them according to your age. Then again doctors vary in their opinions. As it has been said before, prevention is better than cure, but that decision is up to you to make.
