People may think Botox at such a young age isn’t necessary, but those people are sadly mistaken. Botox in your 20s in actually a great investment in present and future self. Studies have shown that using Botox as a preventative measure against wrinkles can help increase the longevity of youthful skin.
In 2015, more than 6.7 million Botox procedures were performed, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, about 30% of those 6.7 million are used as a preventative treatment.
As a society, we are learning that prevention is key to a happy healthy life where your body is concerned, your skin is no different. “Think of your skin as piece of paper,” says Julie Russak, M.D., a dermatologist and associate professor at Mount Sinai Hospital. “The more you crinkle that paper, the more lines will be there. The less folding and crinkling, the smoother the paper will be.” Recent research shows that over time Botox can help the body “heal” existing wrinkles,and smooth the skin, which gives a more youthful appearance.
Though research is ongoing, studies suggest even more potential benefits to going under the needle, from improving hard-to-treat depression to decreasing excessive sweating to treating movement disorders.
Some are concerned that it would be highly noticeable that you have had a procedure done, however; that is not the case. Botox is a relatively quick and painless treatment that can be done on your lunch break! No one would even know you have had this procedure done!
With all the added benefits of having a Botox procedure, your next investment in yourself should be Botox.
