Beating Wrinkles at 20-Something
Lines, wrinkles, sagging and pre-mature aging aren’t only the concerns of mature women looking to turn back the hands of time. Women in their 20’s are starting to pay attention to how they can fight against early signs of aging and they’re not finding it in the latest anti-aging cream. They’re turning to Botox and thermage treatments to stop wrinkles in their tracks.
Treating wrinkles and bothersome lines is a completely different concept than actually preventing wrinkles. Botox treatments may be a necessity for young women who are concerned about fine lines that are already appearing but this is not to be abused.
Doctors argue whether early treatments are necessary or if our youth-obsessed culture is pressuring young women to stay young by starting the round of injections early.
Dr. Stevens recommends avoiding invasive procedures at too young an age. Rejuvenating procedures should be used judiciously as needed for the best results. He sees another trend emerging with the advance of Botox. “We can literally prevent wrinkles from occurring for many years.” For women in their 20’s looking to keep the age demon from showing its face too soon, here are a few anti-aging habits that don’t involve injections or expensive treatments:
- Wear sunscreen to prevent sun damage and pre-mature aging
- Avoid tanning beds
- Avoid smoking and excessive drinking
- Speak with a qualified surgeon about preventative treatments that fit your current needs and concerns
