Botox is a neuromodulator that works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscle, which stops the muscle from contracting. This allows wrinkles to soften and to relax.
Botox is an FDA approved product and has been on the market for close to 25 years as a solution to visible signs of aging.
Preventative Botox does exactly as it describes; it prevents wrinkles!
Preventative Botox starts before any wrinkles or fine lines in your face are visible.
Patients in their mid to late 20’s or even in their 30’s can be great candidates for preventative Botox.
Botox that is properly administered will reverse mild lines and prevent them from developing into deeper wrinkles that appear even when a patient’s expression is relaxed later on.
