Home » Blog » Preventative Botox for People Under 30

If you want to prevent wrinkles in the future, LISTEN UP! You have probably heard talk about preventative Botox for those under thirty. Starting earlier with skincare, sunscreen, and small doses of Botox are the best ways to prevent wrinkle formation. Botox is one of the top cosmetic procedures performed in the United States, and it has been on the market for over twenty years.

What is Botox Cosmetic?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a FDA-approved injection to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet (wrinkles around the eyes), and forehead lines look better in adults. This treatment usually takes less than thirty minutes, from start to finish. There is minimal downtime with the procedure. Results from Botox can be seen in as little as 24 hours, but full effects can take up to 14 days to be seen.

Training Muscles

Like you can train all the muscles of the body, you can train the face muscles. The earlier you train and how regularly you train your facial muscles can make a big difference in preventing lines and wrinkles. Botox temporarily relaxes muscles to minimize excessive movements that can cause wrinkles. Other factors like UV exposure (sun and sunbeds) and smoking can also contribute to aging. Botox helps keep the muscles tight so they do not start to sag, causing unwanted wrinkles. If you start prevention early, your muscles will be trained to prevent wrinkles since they haven’t even had a chance to form completely.

When Should I Start Preventative Botox Treatments?

Most individuals see minor signs of aging in their early twenties. Aging usually presents itself around the eyes, on the forehead, and around the mouth. When you begin to notice more lines with facial movement, you may want to consider preventative Botox; this will help prevent those lines from appearing when the face is at rest (not moving).
