Millennials are known for their love of selfies, which is why they are sometimes referred to as the “selfie generation.” It’s no wonder, then, that more millennials are turning to noninvasive medical spa treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic in Atlanta to keep their selfie game strong.
A Rising Trend
According to a recent survey from RealSelf, 51% of people ages 18 to 24 are considering a cosmetic treatment in the next year. With very little downtime and few side effects, BOTOX is the logical choice for a first-time procedure. Here are just a few reasons why:
BOTOX reduces early signs of aging.
BOTOX is one of the best tools millennials have to combat early signs of aging like crow’s feet, laugh lines, and forehead wrinkles. That’s because BOTOX works by weakening specific facial muscles that are responsible for expression lines. When injected into targeted areas, BOTOX smooths and relaxes wrinkles for a more alert and refreshed appearance.
Some believe that using BOTOX early (such as in your 20s) may help ward off future wrinkles before deep lines have already settled in. The theory is that by stopping the facial movements that cause creases, you etch fewer lines into your skin over time and prevent the wear and tear that causes you to form wrinkles in the first place.
The results are not permanent.
One of the advantages of injectable treatments like BOTOX is that you can take them for a “test drive.” That’s because the effects of BOTOX are temporary, so you have the opportunity to try out BOTOX without committing to permanent changes.
Most people see improvements in the appearance of lines and wrinkles in about 5 to 7 days and enjoy the results for 3 to 4 months. After your results fade, you can choose to come back for a follow-up treatment to restore your fresh, youthful look.
There are few side effects and very little downtime.
BOTOX is a very simple in-office procedure that takes just a few minutes to perform and requires no incisions, anesthesia, or downtime. This makes BOTOX a convenient and discreet rejuvenation option for those who want to look naturally refreshed without the signs of treatment.
Side effects from BOTOX injections are also minimal, including only light bruising, redness, or soreness at the injection site. Some people may experience a headache, but this is less common.
Choosing BOTOX for the Right Reasons
It’s important to note that any time you choose to change your appearance, you want to do it for the right reasons—such as wanting to look and feel your best—not because there’s a trendy new procedure available.
BOTOX has been successfully used in the medical community for years and is very safe and effective when administered by a board-certified Atlanta facial plastic surgeon. When searching for an experienced provider, look for qualifications such as board-certification, professional affiliations, and memberships in reputable organizations.
