Should you use Botox in your 20’s?
Celebrities have been using Botox for years to erase wrinkles and keep their youthful appearance. In the last few years Botox is being used regularly by all age groups especially men and women in their 20’s. The twenty somethings are using it to be proactive in their ageing and the thirty somethings are using it to get rid of the onset of ageing around the eyes, between the brows and the forehead. Women and men in their 40’s, 50’s and on are using Botox to lift their brows, make existing established wrinkles in their forehead, around the eyes and jaw line less noticeable.
Botox is a substance that paralyzes and weakens muscles. Because the muscles are weak in the area injected movement of those muscles are restricted in movement. Restricted movement of these muscles results in less wrinkles and / or no wrinkles if in fact a person in proactive in their ageing and starts to use Botox prior to the onset of the wrinkle.
This simple 10 minute procedure is not gender specific and is rather affordable when taking into consideration the cost of other surgical options that one may need later on in life if in fact one doesn’t get into a proactive ageing regimen that includes regular Botox treatment over time.
More and more men and women in their 20’s are starting a Botox regimen to stop the onset of wrinkles prior to their thirties. Dr. John Kotis recommends that this Botox treatment be done every 3 to 4 months for the most optimal result. By negating the onset of the wrinkle in the first place the instance of the wrinkle will be delayed. Some long terms patients of Dr. Kotis who have been treated with Botox regularly throughout their 20’s do not have any evidence of wrinkles in their mid 30’s in the areas treated. It should be noted however that getting on a great medical grade skin care line helps. The social media culture has brought awareness to ageing and thus younger men and women are becoming far more aware that they can control how they age and they choose to prolong their youthful appearance with Botox.
