Botox for 20-somethings
According to the Plastic Surgery Statistics Report by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Botox procedures among those in their 20′s rose 8% in 2012. The most targeted spot is the forehead, mainly between the eyebrows and crow’s-foot areas.
Dr. Mandell-Brown of Mandell-Brown Plastic Surgery Center located in Cincinnati, Ohio offers this non-surgical procedure for those interested in a youthful appearance. “This injectable treatment paralyzes the muscles which in turn helps reduce the visibility of facial wrinkles,” says Dr. Mandell-Brown. Botox is seen to be the most common procedure to use to create this youthful appearance.
Botox is considered to be the second largest percentage increase of all minimally invasive procedures for those who are in their 20′s. Juvederm (hyaluronic acid) treatments is considered to be the first.
Too much Botox can result into other issues such as droopy eye-lids and impaired vision for a period of time. Always consult with your plastic surgeon to make sure the procedure is right for you.
