Why is preventative aging important to millenials?
Today, social media is everywhere, and millennials or young individuals, have easily assimilated it into their everyday lives. With apps like Snapchat, Instagram, and Facebook, selfies are all the rage. And when you are constantly taking selfies of yourself, you are bound to notice little signs of aging. To keep up with the idea of “perfection” shown on social media, more millennials than ever are getting Botox and dermal fillers. Because these treatments are nonsurgical and require little to no downtime, it makes it the perfect quick-fix. Read on to learn more about these treatment options.
Botox is a popular neuromodulator, which aims to selectively weaken certain facial muscles to reduce signs of aging. It is most commonly used to reduce crow’s feet, lines between the eyebrows and on the forehead, to elevate the brows, and soften the chin pad. It is made up of botulinum toxin type A, and can last for 3-4 months. Today, many millennials are also using Botox as a preventative treatment rather than to correct the aging process.
Fillers are different from Botox in that they are used to lump and fill in areas of the face. Fillers are often used to help create fuller lips and cheeks, enhance sunken eyes, and soften the look of wrinkles. Many fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that attracts and binds water under the skin. There are many FDA-approved fillers today, including Restylane and Juvederm.
At ASBS, we also offer other types of fillers, such as Sculptra Aesthetic and Radiesse that work differently with your skin.
