The majority of Botox users in Solihull are more senior women who wish to minimise the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Botox is one of the most trusted and well-established cosmetic procedures in the world, smoothing the face and tightening the skin.
Though many women choose to get Botox in their 30s or 40s, some women get them in their 20s. Some may wonder why Botox is necessary so early on in life, as most women will have minimal if any, lines on their face in their 20s.
However, Botox may have a preventative effect on the onset of wrinkles, which helps set the foundations for better cosmetic results once you hit your 30s or 40s.
Some younger women in their 20s are now choosing to undergo treatment to prevent the appearance of wrinkles. The idea is to prevent the skin and face from acquiring deeper lines later on in life.
The treatment keeps the skin taut and could help delay the development of severe creasing.
Common Areas Treated by Preventative Botox
The idea behind it is that the daily stretching and folding of your face — for example, smiling and talking will lead to wrinkling as you age. This folding of the skin in key areas of the face is where wrinkles are most likely to appear first, deepening and coming more prominent as you age.
This is why most preventative Botox centres around four common areas:
Around the eyes
Also, called the ‘crow’s feet’, wrinkles around the eyes form because of smiling. The lines radiate from the eye, and outwards towards the temples.
Creases may also form around the forehead. This is a common problem area treated by Botox as the lines in this area can be quite prominent.
Between the eyebrows
Also, called frown lines these lines form an ‘11’ between the eyebrows.
Smile lines are the creases that form on the side of the nose, extending downwards towards the corners of the mouth. Smile lines form after smiling repeatedly.
Some people may also choose to undergo preventative Botox to minimise the effects of their lifestyle choices on their skin.
Women who are active and spend a lot of time outdoors may experience premature wrinkling due to prolonged sun exposure. Though the regular application of a high SPF sunscreen minimises the damage caused by UV rays, sun exposure can still cause wrinkles.
Another cause of premature wrinkles is alcohol and tobacco use. Excessive drinking and smoking can affect your complexion and lead to sallow, wrinkled skin.
The use of preventative Botox can minimise or even reverse the effects of these lifestyle choices and give you more youthful looking skin.
Botox in your 20s can be highly beneficial to those who want good-looking skin throughout all their years. It may be that early Botox treatment paves the way for longer-lasting, less extensive future treatment.
