Why are Millennials Choosing Botox and Fillers

With the rise in social media and the ability to share photos with anyone at any time, women are more aware than ever of the way they look! Because of this, the Selfie Generation has begun turning to treatments such as Botox and fillers at a younger age for facial rejuvenation.

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable neuromodulator that can weaken select facial muscles to smooth the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Treatment can be used in the upper face to improve crow’s feet, forehead lines, frown lines, and even lift the eyebrows. The formula is FDA approved for those 18 and older and can give lasting results for about 4 months.

In the past, Botox near Detroit was most commonly used to treat signs of aging once they had already formed. Now, those in their 20’s are discovering Botox as a preventative measure to attempt to stop lines and wrinkles from forming in the first place. This could help to avoid the need for a surgical procedure down the line to correct signs of aging.

What Are Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable formulas, like Botox, but do not affect the facial muscles. Instead, fillers add subtle volume to areas of the face to improve wrinkles and folds, sunken eyes or enhance the lips. Hyaluronic acid fillers are the latest formulas that millennials are taking advantage of. Not only can fillers keep your face looking smooth, they can enhance it as well, with results lasting for many months to a year depending on the formula you choose.
