Preventive Botox: A treatment that makes a difference

In the constant quest to find treatments to reduce aging as quickly as possible, a treatment has emerged that has become very popular in recent years: preventive Botox. Using botulinum toxin to prevent fine lines and wrinkles has become very popular in today’s younger community.

You may ask… What is its purpose? While Botox is well known in the community that is starting to get fine lines or wrinkles, the main purpose of the preventive treatment is to smooth the movement of the facial muscles to reduce and prevent the appearance of deep lines and permanent wrinkles.

Benefits of preventive Botox

The application of botulinum toxin has multiple benefits, which have had a great impact on the Millennial community, since different studies have proven that the use of this treatment has great results in the search for “eternal youth“.


  • Delays the appearance of wrinkles and expression lines.
  • Smoother and more uniform skin.
  • Anti-aging effect.

From what age can it be used?

If you are in doubt, you should know that there is no ideal age to start preventive Botox treatment. From Mendoza Plastic Surgery, the answer is that this is a personalized treatment, since the age to perform it will depend on each patient. 

But it should be clarified that the average age at which we start the treatment with our patients are between 30 to 35 years, being the people who begin to mark expression lines by the loss of collagen; sometimes, some men and women of about 25 years who have a condition that allows them to develop premature expression lines, which leads to start treatment earlier than expected.
