Is Preventative Botox Worth the Hype?

Published on March 27th, 2019

Botox has traditionally been used by the older demographic to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. But in recent years, people are seeking out Botox in Mt. Prospect at a younger age in the hopes of preventing wrinkles from forming in the first place. Botox is an FDA-approved procedure for those who are 18 and older, and patients in their mid-20s are starting to opt-in for the benefits.

Retrain Facial Muscles

Preventative Botox is beneficial because it helps to retrain your facial muscles to improve your face’s “posture” that may cause wrinkles in the future. Our team will ensure that the Botox is used strategically so that facial muscles are not able to pull in the direction that you want. This allows your muscles to age more evenly.

Prevent Dynamic Wrinkles

Dynamic wrinkles refers to wrinkles that are caused by muscle movements. Examples include wrinkles that develop around the sides of your mouth, horizontal lines across your forehead, crows feet or wrinkles that are on the side of your nose. Our doctors will be able to tell where you can benefit from Botox simply by looking at your face.

How to Tell if Preventative Botox is Right for You

The first step in combating wrinkles is wearing sunscreen, moisturizer and retinols. This combination of products can help minimize your risk of developing wrinkles. If you notice that you are still developing wrinkles after these other preventative methods, you should look into how Botox can help you!
