Do you wish that you could stop wrinkles and fine lines from forming in the first place? If so, preventative Botox could work for you. With the trusted Botox formula, we can reduce contractions of the facial muscles in patients’ younger years, allowing them to retain a youthful appearance for longer. 

Background on Preventative Botox

The facial expressions that you make every day, such as smiling, frowning, and squinting, cause the skin to stretch and contract. Over time, this leads to the development of wrinkles. Botox works by preventing the muscle contractions that cause the folding and stretching of the skin. It’s a neurotoxin that relaxes the facial muscles to keep the skin smooth. 

Botox was originally developed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and facial folds in patients in their 40s, 50s, or 60s. Now, preventative Botox has become a popular method of keeping the skin smooth and youthful for patients in their 20s and 30s. By preventing the formation of wrinkles with Botox, patients can enjoy wrinkle-free skin into their later adult years. 

When To Start Receiving Preventative Botox

There’s no set age at which to start preventative Botox treatments. However, it’s ideal to begin treatments when you see the earliest signs of fine lines forming. This will inform your provider of the best areas to inject Botox for wrinkle prevention. For most patients, this occurs around the mid-20s or early 30s. 

Preventative Botox can stop the formation of crow’s feet, frown lines, glabellar lines, forehead creases, and even wrinkles on the neck. It’s FDA-approved and has been successfully used for decades, so you can trust the safety of this cosmetic treatment.
