If you are 20-40 & considering Botox: What you need to know
Updated: Jul 13, 2022
A common trend emerging is the use of Botox for preventative aging rather than correcting the aging process. More and more millennials are requesting Botox (and other fillers) to prevent wrinkle formation as opposed to correcting the wrinkles once they appear. It is thought that perhaps this preemptive use will negate the need for surgical aging correction for a long time. Time will tell whether this is indeed true and there are a few other things to consider.
Botox, a brand name that is commonly used to refer to any number of neuromodulators whose sole purpose is to selectively weaken certain facial muscles to reduce crow's feet wrinkles, elevate the brows, help turn up the lips and soften your chin pad.
When used correctly Botox can dramatically reduce early and moderate signs of aging by minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles or reshaping the eyebrows. Momma has the intimate anatomic knowledge of these muscle groups and can accurately determine the placement and quantity needed to achieve the desired result.
These FDA-approved neuromodulators, when used on an individual who is already experiencing the signs of aging will typically last 3 to 4 months. This is the twist here. There are many different lifestyle elements that come into play when using Botox (specifically for preventative aging) at an earlier age than the target 40+ age the product was originally intended for.
Do you work out? Sweat? Are you a body builder? Do you have a high metabolism because of diet or exercise? Are you pregnant, becoming pregnant or on birth control? All of these aspects of the lifestyle of a younger Botox user affect its typical effectiveness period. Momma has a broad client list of all ages and what she has seen is just as individualized an effectiveness period on those younger clients using Botox.
For that reason, she will consult with clients individually to ascertain their activity levels and other potential reasons for effectiveness and quantity of units of Botox used. Botox can take 2 weeks to 10 days to become effective. 14 days is ideal for full effectiveness. For this reason, Momma will do touch ups to a session no earlier than 2 weeks from the date of injection to no later than one month. Because lifestyle affects overall length of effectiveness, younger more active clients may require a new session in 2-3 months rather than 3-4.
Please let Momma know what your activity levels are and other potential lifestyle choices that might metabolize the Botox faster and she will accommodate that with the number of units she suggests.
