Preventative Botox in Short Hills, NJ

Preventative Botox is the process of injecting Botox into areas of the face prone to crease and wrinkles. By slowly weakening muscles, Preventative Botox can help lessen deep-set creases and wrinkles before they start. It is a precautionary non-invasive procedure that is increasing in popularity for women and men in their 20’s and 30’s depending on patient’s genetic disposition, skin care regimen, sun exposure, and health.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, an estimated 100,000 patients between the ages of 20-29 received Preventative Botox in 2015. Ideal candidates for preventative Botox can already see traces of lines when skin is relaxed. By starting Botox treatments before deep imperfections set, the amount of Botox required would be far less than patients who already have visible fine lines and wrinkles.
