It’s no secret that preventative Botox is one of the fastest growing trends on Tik Tok. Preventative Botox certainly has benefits – once you hit a certain age. In contrast, taking to the needle can raise an eyebrow (or maybe not), when the age range is between late teens and early twenties.
We were shocked to hear Tik Tok influencer, Justiazzzvidk, started Botox injections at 19 years-old – seriously? A large of proportion of this age group who want preventative Botox tend to follow trends. Alas, they might as well set their money on fire for all the good it will do.
Adding insult to injury, Botox injections represent the start of a lengthy and expensive process. It implies a long-term commitment. Although non-surgical cosmetic procedures appear to be the solution to maintaining facial rejuvenation, it doesn’t always work out the way we’d like. Take your pick from a number of celebrities if you want to see the results of overdoing the Botox. Not pretty.
When Preventative Botox Benefits The Younger Generation
On the other hand, preventative Botox may be suitable for younger people under certain circumstances. Some younger people suffer from conditions that Botox injections would improve. A cosmetic surgeon looks at numerous factors (other than age), before determining if this is the right approach.

Read on to discover Dr. Konstantin Vasyukevich’s expert tips regarding preventative Botox.
1. “Preventative Botox can be very effective at preventing premature wrinkles, but it is not for everyone.”
2.”People with hyperactive (very strong) facial muscle activity would be the group that benefits from preventative Botox the most.”
3.”One good test to determine whether you would benefit from preventative Botox is to look at the mirror while smiling, frowning and raising your eyebrows. If the wrinkles resulting from these movements seem to be excessively deep that might be a sign that preventative Botox might be helpful.”

4.”My second favorite test you can do is to look at the mirror while having your normal conversation on the cell phone. If you notice that your face is very expressive, and there are deep wrinkles appearing in the forehead area, as a result of your normal facial muscle activity – that would be another indication for preventative Botox.”
5.“One has to keep in mind that preventative Botox is not just one round of injections. Once started on this regiment one would have to continue using Botox consistently, for an extended period of time. Typical preventative Botox regiment would require injections every 4-6 months.”
