Have you noticed over the past few years that plastic surgery and aesthetic treatments are no longer things to whisper about, or deny if you’ve gotten them? Instead, people are talking candidly about their medspa and plastic surgery experiences and sharing selfies on social media! The stigma of “getting work done” simply doesn’t exist anymore, at least not among those who are millennials or younger. This changing rhetoric is part of how millennials have been — and are still — transforming how people think about and consider plastic surgery and injectable treatments like Botox® and dermal fillers.
Twenty-year-olds have embraced the mindset of self-care, and with that comes the willingness to invest in their appearance in a more long-term way than just using makeup. We’re talking about “prejuvenation,” a concept where young adults in their 20s make anti-aging treatments and products part of their aesthetic routine, as a way to effectively delay the signs of aging that typically become noticeable in your 30s and beyond.
In 2018, Forbes reported that Botox use among people aged 19-34 had risen by 87% over the past five years! That is due in large part to the power of social media and the overwhelming acceptance of prejuvenation as part of self-care — not to mention selfie culture, which encourages treatments that offer instant or near-instant gratification, such as injectables.
We are excited, of course, to see millennials so enthusiastic and open about getting “work done,” so to speak, because it means they are more willing to reach out to us and allow us to help them look and feel their very best.
Whether you’re thinking about doing some PREjuventation or REjuvenation, here’s what you should know about these increasingly popular treatments available right here in Syracuse.
Botox is most popular for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes, but did you know it can also help to delay signs of aging before they start? This is why Botox is increasingly popular among millennials who hope to retain their youthful, vibrant look into their 30s and beyond. Botox works by relaxing the facial muscles that, through repeated movement, cause wrinkles to form that are often the first visible signs of aging. Results typically last three to four months and treatments can be tailored to your unique aesthetic goals!
Dermal fillers are great for reducing signs of aging by restoring youthful volume to your face or plumping your lips, but fillers can also provide great results for anyone interested in filling in old acne scars, plumping lips that have always been thin, and more. We are proud to offer a wide range of dermal fillers, because each type is ideal for different areas of the face or different concerns. During your personal consultation, we will work with you to determine the best type of fillers for your specific needs and goals!
