Botox Patients Getting Younger

botoxAccording to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Botox usage is up 10 percent among 20-29-year-olds in the past year. 

So why are younger women (and men!) turning to the popular injection treatment?

Botox has now been around for almost 20 years and the benefits of a few subtle injections to gently smooth out lines and wrinkles are well-recognised.

We have also learned that botox is useful not only as a “cure” for wrinkles, but also as a preventative measure. After all, those lines are caused by frowning and facial expression. Botox represses the find muscular activity, presenting a smoother skin. That means less creasing the skin, delaying the appearance of those tell-tale lines.

It is this “preventative” aspect of botox that appeals to younger patients, who are keen to preserve a more youthful skin.

The full-on frozen look is not necessarily the way. Botox can be extraordinarily soft and natural looking. This gentle approach is sometimes called “Baby Botox” and is ideal for younger patients, first-timers or those that are keen to preserve some facial movement for a more natural, yet line free appearance.

In skilled hands, Baby Botox is relatively quick and painless.

As one patient said: “When you are 25 you have that mentality that it’s never going to happen to me. I’ll always look this great. I won’t be one of those people that does that. And then it happens. Wrinkles appear.”
