Botox injections provide many benefits. Botox is used to relax facial muscles so they do not contract and cause wrinkles and creases in your face. Many people get Botox injections to undo these aging effects, but Botox can also be used to prevent the formation of wrinkles and creases in your face. Botox and fillers can keep your skin looking young and healthy for a longer duration of your life!
Should You Get Preventative Botox?
Botox is starting to become extremely common for younger ages because of its preventative reasons. The FDA has approved that anyone 18 years or older can receive Botox injections. Many patients have been starting Botox as young as their early 20s. Some dermatologists actually recommend Botox injections along with a good skincare routine for patients who are looking to avoid wrinkles and creases on their faces. Instead of waiting for wrinkles to form to get Botox, the new trend is to get the injections before the wrinkles even start. If you want to prevent wrinkles and creases on your face, talk to your doctor about Botox injections.
How Often Do You Need Botox Injections?
Everyone is different when it comes to how often you need to keep up with your Botox injections. Generally, Botox injections last patients about 4 months before they need another injection. However, it has been seen the patients who receive Botox at an earlier age need injections less frequently to maintain their younger, wrinkle-free face. A younger patient who wants to prevent wrinkles and keeps up with their skin care routine can usually expect to need injections closer to every 6-8 months.
Botox Vs Fillers
Botox is used to prevent or minimize facial wrinkles and creases that form from muscle contraction. However, Botox does not help correct facial sagging or scars. To fix drooping around the eyes and cheeks, thin lips, or smooth out scars, patients can use dermal fillers. Dermal fillers add volume and smooth out areas on the face. Fillers, however, are not used to prevent wrinkles and creases in your face as Botox does. Some older patients get both Botox and fillers to smooth out their skin and prevent future wrinkles.
