More young men and women are now choosing to have Botox Cosmetic injections, as recent research has shown that they may prevent wrinkles as well as treat them.
Recently documented in a press release
from World News Report,
younger patients are showing increased interest in a wide range of plastic surgery procedures, including Botox
and dermal filler
injections, breast augmentations
, nose jobs and eyelid surgeries.
Younger Patients Looking for Anti-Aging and Facial Contouring Procedures
According to Dr. Stella, a cosmetic surgeon quoted in the press release, “BOTOX is not just a wrinkle reducer; it can also act as a wrinkle deterrent. Studies have shown that applying BOTOX to the fine lines that are precursors to deeper wrinkles can prevent those deeper wrinkles from occurring later, in the patient’s 30s and beyond. People in their 20s and early 30s who have begun to show facial aging can benefit in the long term from BOTOX.”
In addition to the growth seen in Botox treatments for young patients, this popular procedure is skyrocketing in popularity with patients of all demographics. According to the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ABFPRS) statistics, Botox injections are have been the leading non-surgical cosmetic procedure for patients under 35 in recent years.
In terms of surgical procedures, the most popular plastic surgery procedures for patients under 35 have been rhinoplasties, also known as nose jobs. This is a particularly popular type of procedure for patients of all ages, as nose surgeries can address a wide range of issues that are not necessarily related to aging. In many cases, a nose job can help to provide a more naturally balanced overall appearance to the face, helping to accent the natural beauty of other areas, such as the eyes, smile or hair.
