Is Getting Botox in Your 20s a Good Idea?
Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures on the market today. Botox alleviates the look of wrinkles that form on your face, especially those on your forehead and at the corner of your eyes and mouth.
Although it has been an extremely popular procedure for those people with advanced signs of aging, Botox can also be an effective treatment for alleviating the signs of premature aging as well. Because of this growing trend, there are many reasons to consider getting Botox treatments while still in your 20s.
What are the Benefits of Getting Botox in Your 20s?
Botox can correct the fine lines and wrinkles that 20-somethings may be showing (due to premature aging). Mary people in their 20s are aging prematurely due to the high-stress nature of their careers and lifestyles. For those 20-somethings, it’s Botox to the rescue!
Botox treatments can also serve as a preventative measure for developing more wrinkles. For example, when we smile, frown, or make any number of facial expressions, the development of fine lines and wrinkles are apt to form.
Because Botox prevents us from scrunching our brows and foreheads, it also safeguards us from developing new wrinkles. You may even find that the Botox trains you to stop making certain facial expressions, which may prevent you from developing any new wrinkles even after the Botox has worn off.
In addition to these reasons, it may prove cost-effective to try Botox in your 20s so that you will not require as many injections as you move on in years. The effects of a Botox treatment can last three months or longer (and the effects wear off gradually). You should only get a series of Botox injections three times yearly.
Best Practices for Getting Botox
Because Botox injections can leave your skin slightly bruised, swollen and red after they are administered, it is best to get your procedure done on a Friday or Saturday. You shouldn’t wear anything tight around your injection site as it may lead to an irritation. Wearing a soft beanie cap over your injection site will be fine. So you bring one with you (along with a pair of sunglasses) as you head to get your procedure done. This possibility of an irritation lasts one to three hours after your procedure.
The procedure can take from 15 to 45 minutes, depending upon how many injections you get at the appointment. Keep in mind that you will not see results right away often it takes a couple of days to a full week to see a noticeable change especially after your first appointment.
