Here’s everything you need to know about the neuromodulator, including why it might be smart to start treatment in your 20s.
Botox is safe and effective
FDA-approved, the injectable is proven to work. The active ingredient (Botulinum Toxin) works by temporarily blocking the signal to the nerve that causes it to contract. This in part leads to the muscle relaxing, creating a softer appearance.
Botox is semi-permanent
While Botox doesn’t last forever, depending on how quickly your body metabolizes it, Botox can last for up to three months, making it a great quarterly addition to your routine.
Although the Botox will do its job no matter how frequently or infrequently it’s injected, keeping up with a regular schedule will help you see consistent results that last. This is because when Botox is working, the muscles aren’t able to develop the wrinkles or fine lines further since movement is constricted.
Botox is preventative
Because of the constricted muscle movement, starting Botox early — when the first fine lines of aging begin to show — could prevent wrinkles from forming entirely. .This builds a case for preventative Botox versus corrective Botox.
Starting the injectable earlier could help with your aesthetic goals, keeping a consistent youthful glow. A skilled injector will be able to distribute the right amount to subtly soften the skin without freezing the face. As you age, the amount and placement of the Botox may shift, but with less dynamic wrinkles and fine lines visible, treatment will be more effective.
Botox is versatile
In addition to smoothing out wrinkles, Botox can also give your eyebrows a lift with strategically placed injections. A Botox brow lift can transform your face: removing forehead lines, raising sagging eyebrows and reducing the appearance of upper eyelid hooding.
Botox requires patience
Although Botox can feel transformational, it’s important to note that it takes some time for the injectable to work, with peak results showing after one week, and final results at two. However, the procedure itself is quick (~15 – 30 minutes) and painless with no downtime, so you can get injected during your lunch hour and return to work with no one the wiser.
