More recently, young people are using Botox as a preventative measure to stop the aging process in its tracks. Botox works by relaxing your facial muscles so that the lines or wrinkles soften and smooth out. When using Botox preventatively, it will relax the muscles before the lines have a chance to form, crease, or deepen. At Inject SkinCare we will discuss your skin goals and provide a tailored skincare plan that works best for you. If you’ve noticed lines beginning to form at your forehead, between your eyebrows, and/or around your eyes or mouth then it’s reasonable to consider starting treatments. Botox prevention is given at smaller dosing and is needed less often than your standard 3–4-month intervals. Although Botox is FDA-approved and available for patients 18 and older, most people don’t have not built up enough lines to worry about before age 25. The most common age to start as a means of prevention is late 20s or early 30s. It’s also important to have realistic expectations since Botox will minimize the reduction of lines but will rarely eliminate the lines completely if used appropriately. Other ways to prevent wrinkles is to maintain a healthy lifestyle, protect your skin with sun block, and wear hats or other protective clothing.
Downside to Prevention
It’s important to have a skilled injector who understands the skin and the aging process. Overuse of toxins can lead to muscle atrophy which will cause further skin damage. Another downside is it can be expensive, but at Inject SkinCare we understand this, and we do our best to provide affordability.

Other Ways to Prevent Skin Aging:
One of the best ways for skin aging prevention is to let your own body do the work! At Inject SkinCare we offer Medical Microneedling. Medical Microneedling uses sterile needles to penetrate the dermis creating channels that allow collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid to produce. This is a natural bottom-up approach to reducing fine lines, acne scars, rosacea, and sun damage. It will combat age related volume loss, skin laxity, and will rehydrate the skin resulting youthful complexion.
