When you’re young, you think you are invincible. You do dumb things like climb fences and jump off roofs, and you do even dumber things like not protect your skin from the sun’s harsh rays. Can you even count how many times you had a sunscreen when you were little?
Now that you’re an adult, you are likely a little— or a lot— more cautious than you were as a kid. You never forget your seatbelt, you try to eat your fruits and vegetables, and you hopefully don’t forget to wear sunscreen every day. There are some things from our childhood— like sun damage— that we simply can’t reverse which can result in things like fine lines and wrinkles. But because we can’t go back and take back the days of sunburns, we can only live in the present. Which is why we want to ask, what if we changed the way we thought of aging?
Stop It Before It Gets Worse
It used to be that patients would start to get Botox and fillers when they reached the age when their fine lines and wrinkles really started to bug them. What if we encouraged patients in their twenties and thirties— who don’t even have deep wrinkles yet— to start getting Botox? Even though some young people have started using Botox as a preventative form of aging, not everyone has. Because Botox works by temporarily freezing your facial muscles and not allowing you to make movements that cause wrinkles, it can essentially work as an anti-aging tool.
Rather than dealing with aging as soon as you age, why not deal with it sooner? Are you ready to learn more about Botox and dermal fillers? Schedule your consultation with Dr. Gregory Wiener at our Chicago office today: (773) 763-3990.
