Why You Should Consider Preventative Botox In Your 20s and 30s

Botox in Ottawa can serve as a preventative treatment to reduce the signs of aging.

When it comes to Getting Preventative Botox in Ottawa, Age is Not Always a Factor

Since Botox helps reduce the signs of aging, it has always been associated with an older patient demographic. But when it comes to preventative treatments, age is not always a factor. Biological and environmental factors often play larger roles in your skin’s appearance. So if your parents started getting wrinkles in their late 20s, and you spend a lot of time in the sun, then you will be more likely to get wrinkles at a younger age.

But don’t fret. Many people in their 20s start seeing wrinkles and treating them with Botox as a preventative treatment. Others start seeing these pesky lines in their 30s. For the most part, age is irrelevant. So if you’re worried about those wrinkles that seem to be sticking around for longer, consider preventative Botox in Ottawa. Preventative Botox will reduce the appearance of these fine lines and wrinkles before they are here to stay.

Preventative Botox

It is not uncommon for people in their late 20s and early 30s to seek preventative Botox treatments. These treatments retrain facial muscles, improving facial posture that is responsible for wrinkles. Botox is especially useful for treating dynamic wrinkles—those caused by muscle movements such as frowning and smiling.

Since contracted muscles cause wrinkles, Botox works to even out these muscles. Botox is a neuromodulator protein that helps relax contracted muscles, improve their posture, both strengthening the muscles and allowing them to age more evenly. So if you opt for Botox as a preventative treatment during the early stages of wrinkle development, it can prevent these facial muscles from forming stronger permanent wrinkles.

When Lines Start to Linger

If you notice that dynamic wrinkles are forming, now is the time for preventative Botox treatments. When dynamic wrinkles begin to stick around after your facial movement has stopped, your muscles need to be retrained. Examples of these lingering wrinkles, also known as resting wrinkles, include:

  • Lines on the forehead after raising your eyebrows,
  • The “11” lines over your nose (even when you’re not squinting),
  • Crow’s feet around your eyes without smiling, and,
  • Frown lines around your mouth.

Even if you think you’re too young to start preventative Botox treatments, the good news is that it’s safe, effective, and starting treatments now will likely mean that you won’t need as many treatments as you age. Remember: wrinkles happen to all of us, even if you’re young, so don’t feel old when you see fine lines appearing. When it comes to wrinkles, age is often irrelevant. Hereditary and lifestyle factors play a larger role in your skin’s appearance. If you want your skin to look youthful—and how you think your skin should look at your age—then consider preventative Botox in Ottawa. With this treatment, you can get your skin back to looking as young as you feel.
