“Am I too young for Botox?” is a common question asked by many of my clients. I explain to them that I started Botox in my late 20’s and I always hear the, “you’re too young for Botox.” This is a complete myth. Botox is the new way to prevent aging.
PREVENTION IS KEY FOR ANTI-AGING
Over the past several years the clients coming in to receive Botox treatments are younger with a large portion of our clientele in their mid to late 20s and 30s. We begin losing collagen in our face as early as 25 and it continues to decline every year after that. Even if you do not necessarily need Botox, it can still help prevent the signs of aging.
Wrinkles form due to many factors one of them being repeated use of expressive muscles in the face.
Overtime those expressions begin to leave permanent lines on your skin, those are what we call “resting lines”. With Botox you will partially relax those muscle movements, so they are not quite as expressive creating those permanent resting wrinkles. Starting at an earlier age can help maintain a youthful appearance. For some clients, over time, those muscles will be trained to not move as dramatically further slowing the wrinkling process.
IS BOTOX WORTH IT AND HOW LONG DOES BOTOX LAST?
That all depends. For many men and women, it is important to feel good about themselves and maintain a youthful appearance. There is some maintenance required with Botox treatments because it generally lasts about 3-4 months and then your muscles will return to their pre-treatment state. At that time, you will be due for another treatment.
However, your wrinkles will not worsen when the treatment wears off. They will return to baseline once the product has left your system.
HOW MUCH DOES BOTOX COST?
Botox treatments are highly individualized, and every person requires a different number of units. Just because you are older, does not necessarily mean you will require more units. It is all based on muscle movement. Any of Couture Med Spa’s highly trained providers can provide a quote for you based on your unique needs.
