Why BOTOX Is Becoming a Part of the Millennial Beauty Regimen

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, people between the ages of 20 and 29 are increasingly getting BOTOX® treatments. That statistic often doesn’t fit well with the common perception of what a person who gets Botox is like. 

At Desired Beauty, our experts agree that they are seeing an increasing number of younger patients. We offer Botox injections and fillers, both of which are popular with our younger clients. This post explores the reasons Millennials are seeking clinical aesthetics services. 

Prevention is the best medicine

It’s a cliché because it’s true. An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. If you’re in your mid-to-late 20s, you’ve probably begun to notice faint lines. They may be between your eyes, across your forehead, tiny crow’s feet around your eyes, or around your mouth and nose. 

Those lines form because your face is beautifully expressive. Each time you smile, the muscles in your face move in the same way, and over time, lines become etched into your skin. Eventually, they become visible even when your face is at rest. 

By getting Botox early, you can prevent those lines becoming a permanent feature of your face. Botox works by interrupting the signal from your brain to your muscles. 

But don’t imagine that your face will look frozen or paralyzed. It’s the skill of your clinician that allows you to remain wonderfully expressive -- but without the risk of wrinkles! At Desired Beauty, our providers are highly trained and skilled. They are masters of injecting Botox exactly where it needs to be. 

It makes you feel good 

Just like anything else you do to feel like you look your best, whether that’s wearing makeup, dying your hair, getting piercings, or any other of the many things we do in the name of style and beauty, injectables help you feel good about your appearance. 

When you look in the mirror and like what you see, you present yourself to the world differently. You’re more confident and less self-conscious. You interact with others more comfortably and feel more relaxed during first meetings. 

Get the look you want without surgery

In addition to Botox, we offer numerous other injectables. Have you always wanted more sculpted cheekbones, but you don’t want to have surgery? Injectables can help you get exactly the look you want in a low-risk, comparatively low-cost manner. 

Another benefit of injectables compared to surgery is that the transformation doesn’t have to be permanent. You can try out fuller lips to see how you feel about them. Or, if a particular look goes out of style, you can stop getting the injections.
