Is Botox Just For The Middle Aged?


When you begin your research about Botox Injections in Melbourne, Florida you may ask yourself, "Is Botox just for middle aged people?" However, if you are looking to rid yourself of forehead lines, brow wrinkles, crow’s feet, or prominent vertical bands in the neck then it doesn't matter what your age is.

It may come as a surprise to learn that many people who elect to receive Botox are still in young adulthood. According to CBS Chicago, these patients aren't looking to erase wrinkles; they're more interested in stopping these signs of aging before they start.

Some doctors agree that injectable cosmetics like Botox may indeed be able to prevent or reduce the appearance of lines, even before they've formed. A Chicago-based plastic surgeon explained to CBS that Botox blocks certain muscles responsible for causing wrinkles from moving. Younger adults will likely need fewer injections, and may even be able to go up to a year without getting regular injections, unlike older patients who must visit every few weeks.

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), Botox topped the rankings of the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedures in 2011, with a total of 2,619,739 surgeries performed by ASAPS-certified doctors. If you are interested in Botox Injections, then schedule an appointment with Dr. Ross Clevens and he will be able to answer your questions about Botox Injections and how they can help you achieve the look you have been wanting.

Botox temporarily weakens the facial muscles in the area that is treated. This relaxes the skin's surface, thereby "removing" the wrinkles. Botox is very effective in diminishing the appearance of frown lines, forehead furrows, crows feet, and lines and wrinkles of the lower face and neck. Dr. Clevens performs Botox injections that last about 3 to 6 months, but typically take about 3 - 5 days to show their effects.
