For many people, Botox seems like a form of treatment that’s intended to reverse the aging process. The typical patient that comes to mind is someone who has fine lines and wrinkles that they’re looking to eliminate.
However, Botox is an excellent approach to preventative skin care for those with smooth and youthful-looking skin. In fact, experts recommend that you start Botox as early as your mid-20s to prevent wrinkles.
Continue reading to learn about the benefits of receiving preventative Botox treatment.
How Preventative Botox Works
Understanding Wrinkles and How to Prevent Them
Botox is an excellent form of treatment when it comes to reversing the appearance of aging skin. But did you know that it’s even more effective when regularly received before wrinkles have even begun to form?
Wrinkles often form from repeating facial expressions that cause the muscles to contract. By repeatedly contracting these muscles, the skin will eventually reveal creases and wrinkles.
When injecting Botox into these muscles that repeatedly contract, the neurotoxin will cause temporary paralysis in the injected area, reducing their ability to tense up; this minimizes or eliminates the formation of wrinkles and deep creases in the skin.
Preventative Botox Process
Receiving preventative Botox is a simple and painless procedure. Your provider will assess your skin and determine the area(s) that should be targeted. Once the targeted area(s) have been determined, you’ll receive your treatment.
Usually, a local anesthetic will be applied to the area(s) being injected. You’ll then be administered the injection and be given any post-care instructions to ensure you achieve full results.
Long Term Benefits
As noted, preventative Botox is a fantastic way to maintain the look of youthful and smooth skin for a longer period.
It’s important to keep in mind that Botox is not a permanent solution and requires regular maintenance. To ensure you’re making the most of your preventive treatment, it’s recommended that you regularly receive Botox injections. Staying on a schedule of undergoing treatment every 12 weeks is a great way to prevent the formation of creases and wrinkles.
Your healthcare provider will help you come up with a plan that will allow you to achieve the full benefits of receiving preventative Botox.
