Everyone wants to age gracefully like a fine wine. Unfortunately, some things are out of our control. You can adhere to a good diet, exercise regularly, and live a healthy lifestyle. However, the reality is that father time gets everyone in the end. As you get older, fine lines and wrinkles become more common as the vigor and virality of your youth disappear behind them.
Research shows that physical attractiveness plays a significant role in social treatment and inequality. Attractive people are likely to have higher incomes than their not-so-genetically gifted counterparts.
As a result, it’s not surprising that some people want to maintain their youthfulness even as they get older. People often seek anti-aging therapy treatments like plastic surgery to look younger than their age, but such options are invasive and require going under the knife.
These implications have caused non-invasive cosmetic procedures like botox injections to become extremely popular. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons notes that botox injections were the most frequently performed non-invasive cosmetic procedure in 2020. The society’s representatives noted that there were over 4.4 million botox procedures that year.
Most people get botox treatments when the first hints of wrinkles and fine lines appear. However, the burgeoning popularity of these treatments has prompted a new trend: people who get preventative botox for wrinkles and fine lines.
What is Preventative Botox?
Most people try their utmost to prevent wrinkles and fine lines from appearing. However, as previously stated, father time remains undefeated.
Preventative botox has emerged as a new trend to slow aging, preventing fine lines and wrinkles from becoming prominent. These procedures are straightforward and convenient, which has led to more people undergoing them.
Should You Get Preventative Botox?
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons notes that approximately 811,000 botox procedures were performed on people in their 30s in 2020. This figure accounts for roughly 18 percent of the total botox procedures performed that year.
Preventative botox has become a growing trend on social media. Beauty and wellness influencers on YouTube and TikTok have become staunch advocates.
It’s important to understand that botox procedures don’t stop aging. However, they slow it down. Preventative botox procedures can stop wrinkles and fine lines from becoming prominent if injected aptly. As a result, it makes patients in their twenties and thirties ideal candidates for preventative botox.
Before getting botox treatments, it’s important to remember that botox is expensive. In addition, most insurance policies don’t cover cosmetic procedures, especially ones done for preventative purposes. In addition, you’ll also want to get preventative botox treatments from a reliable medical practice with certified dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons.
Some people also worry their faces will become expressionless if they start botox treatments early. However, starting botox at a young age won’t make your face emotionless.
