A Guide to Preventative Botox in Hinsdale

Botox® Cosmetic works by relaxing muscles in the face that cause wrinkles. When these muscles contract for a laugh, frown, or squint, they create lines and wrinkles over time that can become bothersome and make you appear more aged. 

Around 7 million cosmetic injection procedures like Botox are performed in the U.S. each year. More and more, people seeking these treatments are between 25 and 30 and are hoping to prevent the signs of aging before they can begin at all.

A conservative approach to preventative Botox in Hinsdale is important

“How soon should I start getting Botox? How old should I be?” There is no set age that someone should begin getting Botox injections. One very expressive 26 year old may use his or her forehead constantly while talking and making facial expressions, causing more forehead wrinkles than a less expressive person in their 40s. 

The Botox specialists at Images suggest that the time to begin preventative Botox in Hinsdale is signaled by the appearance of fine lines during times of facial rest—when you aren’t making any facial expressions. Our trained nurse injectors take a conservative approach to preventative Botox for our younger babes, injecting small amounts only in areas where early wrinkles appear. 

Questions to ask before getting Botox injections→

Where in the face is preventative Botox injected?

The first places on the face wrinkles appear is most commonly between the brows (called “11 lines”), on the forehead, and crow’s feet around the eyes. 

Several treatments with Botox trains the wrinkle-forming muscles in these areas to contract less, even as the product’s effects wear off. This further aids in preventing deep lines and wrinkles from forming for years.

Are there any side effects of preventative Botox?

Botox is an FDA-approved product and is the most popular cosmetic treatment in the world. When administered by a trained, licensed provider, we consider it very safe and effective.
