At what age should one have her first shot of Botox? How about at 19? You might scoff, but there’s some merit to the theory of “prejuvenation.”
One young woman, now 22, explained in a recent article that she started Botox as a teen because she wanted to prevent early signs of wrinkles from worsening. There is validity in the idea of stopping the creases before they’re too deep. The collagen production/degradation ratio flips in the mid to late 20s, and that’s when muscle activity begins to exert its forces on the skin, creating deeper wrinkles.
With the new ThermiRF treatment, which we are the first in Indiana to offer, we can stop nerves from stimulating the muscle to make creases for as long as 24 months without the use of neuro modulators or toxins—and for a fraction of the price of regular Botox use.
We can attack the issue too by building collagen with SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum, peels and Medical Grade Microneedling, so that you have much healthier skin on the surface and below.
So while you’ll never see us offering Botox for babies, we do agree that earlier is better when it comes to treating wrinkles. You know what they say about an ounce of prevention…
