In a recent article titled Going Mainstream: More Young Women, Men Getting BOTOX®, the trend of younger women such as those in their 20’s and 30’s seeking BOTOX® for wrinkle prevention was discussed in depth. Did you know that BOTOX® is now being used as a preventive as well as corrective measure when it comes to wrinkles and fine lines? It’s true—and it’s very effective.
For this reason, the use of BOTOX® in younger women increased 8% from 2011 to 2012 and this percentage continues to grow, though the largest consumers of BOTOX® (about 58%) are females aged 40-54. Men are also increasingly becoming recipients of BOTOX®, accounting for about 7% of all procedures performed. Not surprisingly, BOTOX® accounted for half of all minimally invasive cosmetic treatments performed in the United States last year.
As an FDA-approved treatment for wrinkles in the upper third of the face, this injectable medication is used primarily to reduce wrinkles in the forehead, around the eyes (“crow’s feet”) as well as between the brows (frown lines).
Dr. Langdon is an extremely skilled injector and is one of the first surgeons in the United States to use BOTOX® (starting in 1995!). He uses a gentle technique that avoids bruising and poses no downtime. “BOTOX® is a great way to refresh the face and reduce signs of aging that can make patients look tired and stressed,” says Dr. Langdon.
The benefits of BOTOX® include:
- Minimally invasive: no anesthesia is necessary
- No downtime
- Results within a few days
- Results persist for 3-6 months
- Safe and effective treatment to minimize and prevent wrinkles
If you are not ready for surgical intervention and want to “turn back the clock” on wrinkles, BOTOX® may be the anti-aging solution you’ve been seeking.
