While at one time Botox was perceived as a treatment reserved for the celebrities, it is now one of the most popular non-surgical medspa procedures for people in various age groups. People even in their 20s and 30s choose Botox to prevent and treat facial lines and wrinkles. According to the ASPS figures, the use of Botox injections has grown by 750 percent since the year 2000.
Interestingly, the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery reports that in 2015, the number of patients under 30 seeking Botox surged by 64 percent over the previous year. Motykie medical spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides Botox treatment to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
In the 20s
Some medspa treatment providers may recommend Botox as a preventative measure to candidates in their mid to late twenties to reduce over-expression of the facial muscle, which can occur genetically. People who are considering using Botox in future, may use the twenties as ‘training wheel period’.
Botox injections can help to train the facial muscles not to move as much to prevent future wrinkling of the facial skin. To avoid an unnatural, frozen look, the Botox provider can use a smaller quantity of the neurotoxin and inject it more superficially so that it does not enter into the deeper skin layers. Frozen effect may occur when too much of Botox is applied.
In the 30s
Fine lines around the eye area and between the brows usually begin developing in this age group. At this age, Botox can be used to soften and even eliminate many of the finer lines. The patient may extend the benefits by continuing with the Botox regimen every three months or as advised by the treatment provider.
For people in this age group who only want to receive the treatment as an occasional feel-good booster or for a particular event, may receive Botox injections every six months. Motykie medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for Botox injections.
In the 40s
Thinning of the skin and loss of facial volume occurs more rapidly in this age group, which means wrinkles and fine lines will be more conspicuous. If the person has not used Botox, the facial muscles would be contracting for a long time, giving rise to a few static wrinkles. These wrinkles appear even when the muscle underneath is not moving.
It is possible to address these conditions in the 40s with periodic Botox treatment every three months or as advised by the Botox provider. Mid-face volume loss and sagging skin may occur in this age group up to a mild degree. But when Botox is used appropriately, the impact of this volume loss will be mitigated.
The bottom line is that Botox is not a medical necessity, and facial wrinkles are not a harmful occurrence. However, facial rejuvenation can help to improve self-esteem and make a person feel more attractive, youthful, and happy.
