Does Preventative Botox Work?

Whether you’re in your late 20s or 40s, you may worry that wrinkles and frown lines will mar your appearance. With preventative Botox, you can keep muscles from sagging and settling into lines. This is a useful way to preserve youth and beauty when used in moderation.

Review the frequently asked question and answer below for more details:

How does Botox work?

Botox stops messages from your nerves to your facial muscles. Once injected, the muscle no longer contracts, which relaxes the area, Preventing the repetitive movement that typically causes lines and wrinkles. When you get Botox treatment at our Chicago med spa, you may prevent lines and wrinkles that cause your face to age prematurely. Keep in mind that wrinkles caused by gravity and exposure to the sun do not respond to Botox. Therefore, it's important to wear sunscreen and moisturize as part of your daily beauty regimen.

Where is Botox used?

Our physicians and assistants use Botox to treat and prevent the following conditions:

  • Forehead lines

  • Crow’s feet

  • Frown lines

  • Smoker’s lines

  • Marionette lines

  • Saggy eyebrows

  • Neck cords

What is preventative Botox?

By impeding facial muscle movement, Botox may train your muscles to avoid movement even after the injection wears out. Starting at a young age helps you retain your smooth skin longer. While the FDA approves the use of Botox for patients 18 years old and above, we recommend preventative Botox for clients in their late 20s and early 30s, when repetitive motion can begin to form permanent lines in your skin. By slowing down muscle use, you can prevent deep lines from starting.

Although Botox is a great tool to prevent and ease fine lines and wrinkles that form around your eyes, mouth, forehead and neck, it's important to use it in moderation. When overused, Botox injections can cause muscles to atrophy, which will make lines stand out more. Our physicians provide the medical supervision needed to prevent Botox overuse.
