Why Millennials Are Loving Botox

Botox is quickly becoming one of the most popular anti-aging treatments, largely because there is no ideal patient. The older demographic loves to smooth lines and relax creases, while the younger generation chooses Botox to slow the appearance of aging. From baby boomers to millennials, patients love the skin smoothing and rejuvenating benefits of Botox at any age.

Houston Botox specialist Dr. Christopher Livingston is a board-certified plastic surgeon and is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. He personally performs injections on the forehead, the area between the brows, outer eye area, and in the neck area to reduce the appearance of platysmal muscle bands. Dr. Livingston also injects smaller doses into the lip area to help diminish “smoker’s lines.”

What is Botox?

Botox contains a specialized protein to block nerve signals to specific facial muscles. It keeps the muscles that cause lines from contracting and wrinkling the skin. By relaxing these muscles, wrinkles fade away. While Botox may smooth wrinkles and creases, it won’t keep you from smiling, laughing, and making other normal facial expressions.

Prevention Is Easier than Reversal

Aging is a natural occurrence for everyone, but some cosmetic procedures can reverse these effects as they occur. While surgical treatment can tighten facial muscles, lift drooping tissues, and remove excess skin to restore a youthful facial look, not every patient wants or needs a facelift– especially patients in their early 20’s and 30’s. Botox is an excellent alternative to a standard plastic surgery procedure. Rather than reversing aging as it is happening, this treatment starts working before aging signs become prevalent. There is no reason to wait until your 40’s to enjoy the benefits of Botox; millennials are flocking to plastic surgery offices to treat those early signs of aging before they can progress.

Beautiful Results, No Downtime

Many millennials are either fresh out of college after finishing their undergraduate degree or slaving away for their master’s and on the path towards their dream career. Unfortunately, along with the degree comes the harsh signs of aging from the all-nighters and stressful exams. At Livingston Plastic Surgery, Dr. Livingston knows that millennials are busy with their careers, hobbies, and personal lives and do not have time for the downtime following a procedure, which is why Botox has quickly become their first choice.

Botox is ideal for busy millennials. The treatments can be as quick and easy as a 15-minute session in the office without a need for anesthesia. Patients can squeeze in a quick treatment on their lunch break, often with time to still grab a bite to eat on their way back to work.
