Injectables are a great way to refresh your appearance and smooth out facial lines and wrinkles without the need for surgery. At Aspira Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, we are seeing an increase in the number of younger patients who want injectable treatments like Botox® and fillers in their 20s. Here are some of the reasons why early treatment might be beneficial:

Delaying Wrinkles with Earlier Treatments

Many of our younger patients hear about how neuromodulators like Botox® may delay the onset of wrinkles in the forehead and eye area. Because crow’s feet and smile lines are some of the most obvious wrinkles on the face, using Botox® is very appealing. Lines in the upper part of your face form because the muscle contractions pinch the skin, so the idea is that early Botox injections protect the skin from these wrinkle-inducing effects of facial expressions.

Boosting Collagen Before It Depletes 

Collagen volume loss is a natural part of the aging process and is partly responsible for the development of fine lines, and wrinkles. This loss of collagen and volume begins around your late 20’s and continues to decline as you age. With collagen and volume-boosting injectables like Juvederm®, patients can maintain their collagen and volume levels early on to prevent the development of wrinkles around the nose, mouth, lips, and chin. 

Determining Your Skin Age

Most people focus on a person’s chronological age when determining the right time to start injectable treatments, but skin age is a more important factor. Each person’s skin ages at a different pace based on lifestyle choices, sun exposure, genetics, and more. Some people in their late 20’s who avoid sunlight and do not smoke, for example, may have younger-looking skin than their peers who spend a great deal of time outdoors. As such, there really is no hard and fast rule for what chronological age someone should start Botox® or fillers.

Have you noticed an increasing appearance of lines and wrinkles on your face? Over time, it’s natural to see such signs of aging as laugh lines, crow’s feet and brow furrows become more noticeable. These distinctive marks are due to the facial expressions you make every day, so you may think that you’re just stuck with them. Fortunately, you can smooth their appearance with a convenient, non-surgical cosmetic procedure at our med spa in Austin. Find out how you can minimize the appearance of wrinkles with BOTOX®.

About BOTOX®

BOTOX® is an injectable cosmetic treatment, meaning that it is delivered via skillful injection and requires no incisions or sutures. Therefore, there is little to no recovery period necessary. In addition, a BOTOX® session at our office in Austin is extremely convenient. It’s no wonder the popularity of BOTOX® has endured for so long.

How It Works

BOTOX® uses trace amounts of a purified protein solution to temporarily block the nerve signals that cause muscles to contract. The muscles are then relaxed, which allows the wrinkle above to relax. Your smoother, younger-looking results will be significant, and the results typically last for months at a time. When the nerves begin to resume communication function, you can simply return to our office in Austin for maintenance treatments in order to continue to see wrinkle reduction in your face.

What are the Benefits?

As mentioned, BOTOX® is a quick procedure that requires virtually no downtime. Many patients return to work immediately following a BOTOX® session. It’s also approved by the FDA, so you can feel confident in the safety of this treatment. There is little discomfort involved, and results can be seen in just days. Some individuals report noticing some results immediately, but this depends on the situation. Since its effects are temporary, BOTOX® is a good first treatment for anyone who may feel anxious about modifying their appearance.

If you’re tired of those pesky expression lines and want to see a more youthful reflection staring back at you in the mirror, consider scheduling a consultation at Aspira Plastic Surgery & Med Spa to learn more. This quick, non-surgical and convenient procedure won’t disrupt your life, but it can definitely change it for the better.
