BOTOX® has preventative and reparative uses. In this blog, we will discuss BOTOX® wrinkle prevention. Is it a myth? Does it work? Should you try it? Let’s find out!
Can BOTOX® Prevent Wrinkles?
In a word, yes. BOTOX® can be used to reduce the visible signs of facial aging. The real discussion is in how BOTOX® prevents wrinkles.
BOTOX® is one of the most well known and used injectable treatments in a dermatologist’s toolbox. Composed of an injection containing a protein of botulinum toxin, it temporarily paralyzes the muscles it encounters. Originally used to decrease muscle spasms, like eye twitches, it was realized that people using it had fewer facial lines and wrinkles.
Men and women can start using BOTOX® as early as their mid-20s in a preventative treatment that some people have started called “baby botox.” By using tiny amounts of BOTOX®, subtle results that delay the formation of some facial fine lines and wrinkles can be achieved. If maintained, wrinkles can be temporarily prevented, allowing patients to retain youthful-looking skin for longer.
Who Should Use BOTOX®?
While BOTOX® can be used to ward off wrinkles, not everyone is a good candidate. Multiple factors need to be considered when deciding if it is the right wrinkle prevention option for you.
It is equally important to pick the right provider for BOTOX® treatments, especially for preventative goals. If administered incorrectly, the results can be unwanted and will take three or more months to wear off.
We know BOTOX® well. Our providers have years of injection experience and are well versed in multiple wrinkle prevention options.
