Most people have heard all about Botox and what it can do to smooth the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. However, for many in their 20s, they don’t see the benefits of starting Botox injections when they have no wrinkles to be found. For those who do have wrinkles beginning to form, they probably aren’t very visible. However, getting Botox treatment in your 20s could be one of the best things you do for your complexion. Read on to learn more from New Beginnings Medical Spa!
It Could Improve Your Mood
As we go on to research further uses for Botox beyond just smoothing out wrinkles, we find more and more impressive uses! Recent studies have shown that Botox may be an effective treatment for depression and anxiety. We know that Botox temporarily causes muscle paralysis to lessen the severity of our wrinkles. However, injecting it into your forehead can actually improve your mood. Evidence has shown that those who suffer from depression and receive a forehead Botox injection actually see a lasting reduction in depression symptoms.
This may be because our faces are the center of our emotional expression. Have you ever heard that forcing yourself to smile can improve your mood? This is a similar idea. There are a few psychological studies out there that explore the idea that mood and facial expressions are linked. Botox injections can prevent you from making negative facial expressions, which can help! Of course, more research needs to be done to confirm this idea and the exact cause; however, if you do suffer from depression, Botox could help give you the boost you need.
Botox Could Prevent Collagen Loss
Wrinkles begin forming on our faces because we start losing collagen in our skin as we age. This means we no longer retain the elasticity we have when we are younger. We begin losing collagen at around age 20, and we begin to lose it faster as we age. While you might not think that 20-year-olds have wrinkles, they do. Even if they aren’t quite noticeable yet, they are certainly there. However, for those who start to use Botox in their 20s, their collagen-loss rate slows down. You can keep your youthful appearance much longer than your Botox-free counterparts.
Millennials Are More Likely to Develop Wrinkles
While many millennials are still free of wrinkles, the way of the world ensures that they will likely be seeing these fine lines pop up in no time at all. People have adopted new habits that are speeding up the rate of which we develop wrinkles, including the screen time we get from our smartphones, computers, and televisions. This generation is stressed out and sleep-deprived, which are two qualities you don’t want to have if you are trying to keep your skin looking and feeling youthful. While one solution would be to cut back on stress, screen time, and add more sleep, this simply isn’t realistic for most people. Receiving Botox treatment is one of the best ways to combat wrinkles caused by these stressors.
An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure
While it may be an old and worn-out saying, we find that it still rings true today. When it comes to anti-aging, there is no better way to keep your complexion looking its best well into your 90s quite like starting in your 20s. Getting into good skin care routines today is essential to maintaining your youthful appearance in the future. Years of using your facial muscles, spending too much time in the sun, and natural collagen production decline are going to cause some clear signs of aging on your face. However, those in their 20s still have a chance. A good skin regimen, adherence to SPF suggestions, and regular Botox injections can help you look years younger than your peers when you get older. Prevent the wrinkles now to avoid spending money on more costly treatments in the future!
