Most of us think of Botox Cosmetic® as something for the future. Traditionally, it’s been used by a mature demographic to address fine lines and wrinkles, but increasingly patients in their twenties and thirties are looking for Botox in Vancouver as a preventative treatment.
Botox is FDA-approved for people who are 18 and older, and most of the people looking for preventative treatments tend to be in their late twenties or early thirties. Doris Day, author of Forget the Facelift claims that preventative Botox is being used to retrain facial muscles and improve facial posture.
Through very strategic and discrete placement, preventative Botox can target muscles pulling in ways that will eventually lead to wrinkles. By using Botox, other muscles have a chance to get stronger—they age more evenly resulting in fewer furrows and lines.
Wrinkles develop because skin weakens over time—it can’t bounce back from all the motions and expressions made regularly. For those ready to address wrinkles, Dr. Kamani recommends a two-step process—use a topical retinol product like SkinCeuticals Retinol 0.3 to stimulate collagen—an important building block to rebuild and strengthen skin. Then use Botox Cosmetic®, a neuromodulator to prevent active facial muscles from repeatedly causing the skin to stretch, pull, and overlap.
Botox is designed for preventing dynamic wrinkles caused by repeated muscle movements—furrowing the brow, pursing the lips, squinting, and so on. A cosmetic doctor can often predict a person’s facial habits and tics based on the skin and lines. Botox helps prevent these traits from manifesting as permeant lines. A person who squints could see lines start developing around the eyes even in their twenties. The good news is that Botox Cosmetic® can often reverse mild lines—or if used preventatively can keep them from developing until far into the future.
The idea of facial injections might sound a little scary, even at the hands of an expertly trained medical doctor using a fine cosmetic needle. However, Botox Cosmetic® is the most common cosmetic procedure worldwide and boasts a fantastic safety record.
