Botox has become a household name. In fact, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reported that Botox injections were the most frequently performed non-surgical cosmetic procedure in 2013, up 15.6 percent from 2012.
The popular injectable is known for its wrinkle-reducing effects, particularly when it comes to crow’s feet and forehead lines. Yet are you aware that you can actually use Botox to prevent wrinkles from appearing in the first place?
Is there such thing as preventative Botox?
People in their 20s or early 30s have flawless, supple, and youthful skin. It’s also common for those within this age group to use sunscreen, serums, and creams as preventative measures to maintain their unmarred skin as much as possible. Botox can now be added into the list of preventative steps!
When is the right time to have preventative Botox?
There is no specific age in which Botox should be used preventatively. We generally recommend Botox as a preventative measure once the earliest signs of lines and creases appear. Ultimately, it comes down to whether you have already noticed the first signs of aging and are bothered by them.
