Myth: It is best to wait until wrinkles have started to appear before getting Botox injections.
Fact: An early Botox Cosmetic treatment can prevent deep wrinkles from appearing and postpone the early signs of aging.
The key to fighting wrinkles is to stay ahead of the game. By adding Botox Cosmetic injections as a preventative measure, the face can remain youthful and smooth for years to come. Women who are anticipating wrinkles, even as young as their mid-20s, now have a tool to prolong the first signs of aging.
Botox Cosmetic works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, such as Forehead Lines, Crow’s Feet, and Frown Lines. When Botox is utilized early on, people can actually train their facial muscles not to make certain repetitive expressions, such as squinting or scowling. Dr. Grant Stephens, a Los Angeles based cosmetic surgeon explains, “By not making certain expressions in the future, or making them less often, you may actually need less Botox or need it less often.”
Yet anther reason to consider early Botox Cosmetic is that once facial lines and wrinkles have formed, they can be harder to eliminate. Dr. Stephens goes on to say, “Waiting until lines become etched into the skin means it’s much more difficult to smooth their appearance again.” Learning not to fall back on these line-causing, habitual expressions can also be a greater struggle.
None of this is to say Botox won’t make a dramatic improvement once wrinkles are already showing. It may simply take more of the product, and increasingly frequent visits to the plastic surgeon, to achieve desired results.
Just remember, there is no “wrong” time for Botox Cosmetic. If you have been putting off a treatment, and are noticing the early signs of aging, Botox Cosmetic can help.
