No wrinkle in Millennials - using Botox for preventive measures

The popular trend of “preventative Botox®” is only growing, many millennials both men and women in their 20’s are seeking this anti-aging treatment. They are becoming more and more infatuated on preserving their youth and in result are turning to methods such as Botox® to smooth away early hints of wrinkly creases on their faces.

When asked, do you think your patients looking into injectables to help with facial rejuvenation are getting younger in age? Our Nurse Injector Katie Kelley said, “yes absolutely, they want to be proactive in preventing any future wrinkles.” She also went on to explain that Botox® will help lessen the facial wrinkles you gain in everyday facial movements.

The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reported that Botox® treatments for people between the ages of 19 to 34 keep getting larger each year. Preventative maintenance and cosmetic procedures appears to be a broader trend in most 20 – 30-year old’s, looking into these options now will then later down the road help them feel younger.

In the culture that we live in today, many of our lives and our careers are focused on physical looks and with being so image driven you can’t blame the younger generation to want in on options that many doctors perform on patients older than 35.

Samantha, a 30-year-old business owner who also works face to face with clients often, said she started getting Botox® when she was 26. When asked why? She stated, “solely to prevent wrinkles” she continued, “I am happy I get Botox®! I am always told I look younger then my actual age”.

Botox® is widely recognized and was the first neurotoxin to be FDA-approved for cosmetic use in the United States. If you are thinking to yourself, if I start getting Botox® now will I need more later? The answer is Botox® works by blocking muscle movement and to relax someone's muscle it takes the same amount at the age 20 or 50. Dosages would not change with age, it would just be more dependent on what works best for you as an individual.
