Younger Clients Use Botox for Wrinkle Prevention

|

Botox has long been used to treat wrinkles, but increasingly Botox is used for prevention too. It's not your mother's remedy anymore - we're seeing an increase in younger patients requesting Botox to stop wrinkles before they form.

During our growing years, collagen production makes our skin thicken. But once we enter our 20s, that process stops. Eventually, as your skin begins to lose thickness, wrinkles form and deepen.

And if you begin Botox injections before your wrinkles are prominent, it's possible you can prevent deeper wrinkles from forming. That's good news for millennials looking to slow the affects of aging on their skin, and to avoid or delay a more invasive procedure like a face lift.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, a majority of Botox users are 40-54 years old. But the number of younger Botox patients is on the rise, and people in their 20s accounted for 18% of Botox treatments in 2015 in the U.S. Overall, the number of Botox injections increased by 4% from 2015-2016, with more than 7 million injections given last year.

Some people use Botox by itself for wrinkle prevention; others will use Botox in conjunction with other minimally invasive skin treatments.
