Botox Isn’t Just for the Middle Aged

January 14, 2013 - By Dr. Jules Feledy

Botox is a popular treatment for those who wish to make their facial wrinkles disappear, or at least minimize their appearance. But do you need to have wrinkles in order to benefit from it’s anti-wrinkle properties? Could people in their 20s use Botox to manage their wrinkles, nonexistent though they may be?


Botox has preventative qualities as well

According to a story by CBS Chicago, more and more, people in their early 20s are opting for a bit of Botox, not for maintenance, but for prevention. Natalie Garcia, who has been undergoing Botox treatments since the age of 22, believes the treatments will help her in the long run.

“I like having nice skin. It makes me feel confident, so why not,” said Garcia. “When my skin actually starts aging, during my later years, I think it’ll beneficial.”

According to experts, she might be on to something. Doctors agree that Botox could be used to prevent wrinkles ahead of time, since Botox paralyzes the muscles that cause wrinkles to form in the first place. Also, being younger, early adult patients would need less frequent treatments than older patients, with some able to go a year before needing another shot. Those using Botox to treat existing wrinkles need to re-up every few weeks.

if you’re considering getting Botox, your fist step should be to contact your plastic surgeon and seek out a consultation.
