It is much easier to prevent than to correct.
What Is “Too Young”?
It is never advised to have a young adult under the age of 18 come in for cosmetic procedures because they may still be developing and going through the final stages of puberty. After the age of 21 is when a person can start looking into preventative procedures. It is also important to note that genetics, skin type, and lifestyle all have an impact on when to start preventative treatment.
Why Are Preventative Procedures Important?
People tend to stay away from cosmetic procedures until they notice visible flaws and then they arrive to “fix” the issues they see in the mirror. Aesthetic treatments should not be viewed as a final solution, but rather as a routine like the gym or skincare. It is both easier and more cost-effective to prevent wrinkles and folds rather than wait until they get deeper to address them.
Botox is a neurotoxin that temporarily numbs the muscles. While Botox is used to treat wrinkles it is also successful in preventing them by limiting facial expressions. Botox is injected where the administrator of the neurotoxin can see where the lines will develop, but are not yet visible.
Procedures such as Morpheus8 also aid in preventing the skin from aging. M8 is a procedure that combines radiofrequency and micro-needling. It is a procedure that is suitable for all skin types and tones. The procedure stimulates collagen resulting in smoother, firmer, and toned skin.
Bellafill is a collagen based dermal filler that lasts up to 5 years making it a good investment when it comes to preventative treatment. Not only is it collagen based, but the filler also teaches your body how to produce its own collagen, so the results continue to develop as time goes on. Bellafill addresses acne scars, volume loss, and other age-related cocerns.
