In the last year, nearly 56% of plastic surgeons indicated that they saw an increase in cosmetic procedures and injectables performed for clients younger than 30 years of age. There are many people who may be on the fence about committing to any cosmetic procedure—no matter their age.
Botox is a prescription drug injected into the muscles of the face to temporarily reduce the appearance of lines around the mouth, eyes, and along the forehead to reduce the signs of aging. Essentially, it interrupts the connection between the muscles and the corresponding nerves to paralyze the muscles. When the muscles are not able to contract, you cannot make the repeated movements that cause wrinkles.
Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. According to a study published in 2015, approximately 6.7 million Botox treatments are performed each year. Also, Botox is no long considered only for older people. Increasing numbers are showing that more and more younger people—those aged between 20 to 29—are undergoing Botox procedures. If you are considering undergoing Botox treatments, here are five signs or indicators that it might just be the right time:
Are you seeing crow’s feet?
Botox injections will reduce these lines by relaxing the wrinkling to smooth away the crow’s feet.
Do your eyebrows sag?
Botox will actually provide a lifting effect to the eyebrow area.
Are you experiencing small lines around the mouth and/or perma-frown?
Botox can release the muscles that are causing frown and other small lines around the mouth to give a smoother appearance.
You are seeing bunny lines.
Bunny lines are those lines around the nose that are more noticeable when you smile. Botox can erase those bunny lines (also known as marionette lines).
You are experiencing “orange peel” skin around the chin area.
By releasing the tensions in the muscles that may be causing the skin to essentially “bunch” up and create dimples and dents, your chin area will appear smoother after Botox treatments.
