In the last few years, I started to notice that younger and younger people were asking me for Botox. The reason is that many people don’t want to see the lines appear on their face in the first place. So imagine you have a smooth forehead with no wrinkles or an unfurrowed brow. You just want to keep it this way. So you can have what’s called preventative Botox. Some people in their 20s have Botox injected in the frown, the forehead, or even the crows feet. They never develop wrinkles at all. They have perfectly smooth skin and I inject the muscles so that they can’t frown or wrinkle their forehead or squint their eyes. The Botox relaxes the muscles and the skin overlying it is smoothed out so wrinkles never form. For other young individuals they have very dynamic muscles with deep lines forming early so they may need Botox early and it’s not preventative it’s more of a necessity. So if you are young it’s certainly something to think about.
