Botox: Prevention is the Best Medicine

You may have heard that prevention is the best medicine, when it comes to your skin that couldn’t be more true. ABC News has recently reported that more and more young women are seeking non-surgical treatment to delay the signs of aging.  This is a growing trend that we have seen in our own office. More and more women in their late 20’s and early 30’s are seeking Botox and laser treatments to help prevent signs of aging. Once environmental damage (i.e. chronic sun exposure, smoking, ect…) has been done we are limited on ways to help correct it. However, if you employ preventative measures at an early age you will not have problem later down the line. If someone comes in for treatment in their 60’s to try to get rid of the deep wrinkled on the glabella (in-between the eyebrows) or forehead Botox will probably not work for them however, if you start using Botox in y our 20’s-30’s the deep wrinkles will never develop. More importantly young women should avoid prolonged sun exposure and tanning beds. Chronic UV exposure not only increases your risk of skin cancer but it also breaks down collagen causing fine lines, wrinkles and sun spots.
