Botox is an anti-aging treatment. It reduces the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, especially around the eyes and mouth and on the forehead. Traditionally, men and women in their 30s and 40s were considered prime candidates for Botox. However, people in their mid-20s seeking to slow signs of visible aging have started getting Botox treatments, and the treatment has been coined “baby botox.”
Botox has preventative capabilities. “Baby Botox” is a pet-name that some practices use when describing a treatment strategy where Botox is used in smaller amounts to prevent the formation of fine lines and wrinkles caused by facial expressions. As we age, our skin loses elasticity, which can contribute to the formation of laugh and frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines.
“Baby Botox” is great for younger people who don’t want major changes to their faces or are seeking to slow the formation of facial wrinkles. Smaller amounts of Botox are used and placed in smaller, more targeted areas to achieve subtle results.
There is no age limit on who can use Botox, but there are some factors that make it a better fit for some patients. For example, the predictable and subtle results combined with a relatively low maintenance upkeep schedule make it a great choice. For others, especially those with static lines and wrinkles, it may not be the right choice to achieve their desired results.
