Millennials are Using Botox & Facial Fillers

Injectables like Botox and facial fillers are incredibly popular and effective ways to improve your appearance and combat (and sometime even prevent) the signs of aging.  The average age of someone who tries Botox and facial fillers for the first time is their early forties.  Dr. Peter Abramson tells his patients that the right time is when you are ready and want to improve a certain feature on your face.  It may be because make up can no longer manage the area or you have come to the point where a feature bothers you enough to try something.  When used before wrinkles set in, Botox can even lessen the formation of creases and lines in the forehead and around the eyes.  When done well, fillers and toxins can be tailored to your needs and treatments can be individualized for a natural look.

Now There’s Baby Botox

For first time patients Dr. Abramson recommends going conservative and starting with modest interventions as there is always the opportunity to do more later down the road.  He is now recommending Baby Botox for millennials and younger patients. “Baby Botox” uses a lower volume of Botox ( botulinum toxin injections) than a traditional injection to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. “Instead of using 25 units in an area, you may use 10 units. Baby Botox can be used pretty much anywhere on your face, but it’s best to create subtle changes or to erase fine lines. This way you can keep looking natural, just a bit refreshed and younger.

Gone are the days of the “frozen” look when Botox was new. Minimizing wrinkles sounds just great, but looking frozen and having people notice definitely does not.  We’ve gone from using the manufacturer’s recommended dosing – which creates that frozen look – to something MUCH BETTER! It’s called Baby Botox.
