BOTOX® is a beloved solution to some of the most common signs of aging, but if you’re in your 20s or 30s, you might believe you’re still too young to get BOTOX®. The truth is that older patients aren’t the only ones seeking this in-demand treatment; we often work with clients from the millennial generation who are looking for a way to minimize wrinkles like brow furrows, crow’s feet, and the “11 lines” that form between the eyebrows.
It’s never too early to start benefiting from BOTOX®! Here are the top four reasons younger people are lining up to get BOTOX® treatments.
1. It’s Quick and Minimally Invasive
Today’s millennials are always on the go. They’re ambitious young professionals who are concentrating on advancing in their careers. Many of our millennial patients are also parents to young children and must juggle their work responsibilities with the needs of their growing families. BOTOX® treatments easily fit into even the most hectic schedule. You can schedule your appointment during your lunch break and return to work immediately after, with no need for stitches, anesthesia, or downtime. A few days later, you’ll start enjoying the long-lasting effects. It’s that simple!
2. It’s a Safe and Effective Treatment
Millennials are among the world’s most conscious consumers. When considering aesthetic treatments, they want natural-looking results without sacrificing quality. BOTOX® meets those criteria and more. Before receiving FDA approval for cosmetic use nearly two decades ago, BOTOX® established a long track record of helping resolve medical issues like excessive sweating, migraines, and unwanted muscle spasms. BOTOX® has passed a series of rigorous clinical trials to determine its ability to address common signs of aging with few risks.
3. It Can Help Prevent New Wrinkles From Forming
Dr. Schmidt often recommends BOTOX® as a preventive treatment for younger patients. By starting a BOTOX® regimen in your 20s and 30s, you can “train” your facial muscles to stop making the repetitive facial expressions that cause dynamic wrinkles. If you choose to maintain your BOTOX® results with periodic touch-up injections, you might notice you naturally don’t frown, squint, or raise your eyebrows as often as you used to. In other words, a few years of BOTOX® use could lead to a longer-lasting reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
4. It’s an Affordable Alternative to Surgery
Many millennials are working to pay off their student loans, save for a house, and start building a retirement nest egg. They may not have the financial resources to commit to a surgical treatment. If that description fits you, you’ll be happy to know BOTOX® is a budget-friendly option that won’t put a dent in your bank account. The cost of a BOTOX® treatment varies depending on how many units it takes to achieve your desired results, and younger patients need far less of the product to achieve subtle results that don’t look overdone. That means you can stay on track with your savings goals and still look your best with fewer fine lines and wrinkles. It’s the best of both worlds!
