A significant portion of BOTOX® consumers are between the ages of 25 and 35. Most likely, this stretch of your life is when you will first begin to notice fine lines. Depending on the type of wrinkle, BOTOX® may be the right choice. When you discuss your options with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons, here are some things to consider:
Where the lines are forming. BOTOX® treats "dynamic" wrinkles – those wrinkles formed by years' worth of facial expressions. Frown lines, laugh lines and crow's feet are all included. If you have vertical lines between your eyebrows, horizontal lines across your forehead, wrinkles at the corners of your eyes or around your lips, then you may be a good candidate for BOTOX®, even in your 20s!
Taking a preventive approach to aging. There is some indication that treatment with this injectable in your 20s will stave off the deepest-set wrinkles down the road. Because BOTOX® prevents lines formed by facial expressions, it can put a stop to those wrinkles developing as the years pass, before you even reach your 30s.
Your cosmetic goals. There may be a treatment better suited to your goals and to your skin, regardless of your age. For example, dermal fillers replace lost volume that causes wrinkles. Or maybe you would benefit from an individualized skin care regimen to stave off the effects of aging.
Whatever you decide, our experienced and board-certified plastic surgeons are personally committed to providing clear, accurate and honest information about your choices. To schedule your consultation with our plastic surgeons in Denver, please call Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery at 303-706-1100.
