When you’re in your 20s, your skin is in its prime. Although breakouts are more common at this age, your natural collagen and hormone levels keep your skin looking bright and supple. Its texture is firmer, smoother, and better at keeping fine lines and wrinkles at bay.
The aging process slowly diminishes the body’s collagen production rates. Physicians say that the skin produces about 1% less collagen every year. This is why it is important to set healthy skin habits in your 20s. The sooner you start protecting your skin, the less visible the effects of aging will be. The way that you take care of your skin in its prime plays a large role in how it will look in your 30s and beyond.
So how can you start setting these healthy skincare habits? Luckily, our leading cosmetic surgery team at Beverly Hills Aesthetics offers a variety of facial skin treatments and minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures to enhance your natural beauty.
From peels to preventative Botox, we can work with you to create a long-term treatment plan that protects—and enhances—your glowing skin.
Don’t worry, Baby Botox is not what it sounds like. While we are definitely not giving Botox to babies, this treatment is one of the best anti-aging treatments and a great way to get a head start on preventing wrinkles, acne, and more.
During a Baby Botox procedure, patients receive a smaller amount of Botox injections. The goal is not to completely relax the facial muscles; it works best for younger patients who want to preserve their facial expressions and take care of less-defined wrinkles. It maintains the patient’s natural beauty while shrinking the pores and lifting the face and neck areas.
The pros of Baby Botox include:
More natural appearance
Fewer side effects than regular Botox
Retains facial movement
Reduces excessive facial sweating
Lessens acne breakouts and gets rid of oily skin
Shrinks large pores
Reduces rosacea “red face”
Releases tension in the jaw
Lifts the upper and lower face
Lifts the neck and reduces neck wrinkles
Reduces décolleté (or chest) wrinkles
So what is the process like? Just like traditional Botox services, a cosmetic specialist injects Botox into the area in question. The only difference is the use of a microdroplet technique, which injects fewer units more precisely to the areas of concern. The treatment takes just 15 to 30 minutes and the results can be seen within ten days.
Many patients in their 20s are not as confident about the appearance of their noses as they would like to be. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, about 220,000 rhinoplasty procedures are performed every year. While this is one of the more common cosmetic procedures around, it can be a bit nerve-wracking for younger patients to go through this more invasive reconstructive surgery.
This is why we offer non-surgical nose jobs. In 30 minutes, our team is able to give patients the nose shape of their dreams by using dermal fillers. The combination of these dermal fillers (RADIESSE™ or JUVEDERM VOLUMA™, mainly) and the patient's own fatty tissues can help reshape the nose via modeling techniques. Non-surgical rhinoplasty procedures can correct unevenness, lift and reshape the tip of the nose, and camouflage nose bridge hump.
Our non-surgical nose job can address 85% of aesthetic nose imperfections. This minimally invasive approach is great for patients in their 20s who want to find the harmony and symmetry in their face without going under the knife.
The results are immediate and can last up to two years! It is another great way to combat the aging process and maintain your natural confidence.
Before undergoing any cosmetic procedure, it is important to ask yourself if you are ready for it. It can feel daunting to go through any treatment alone—just ask Samantha Jones from Sex and the City.
Don’t worry though, the professionals at Beverly Hills Aesthetics want you to love the skin that you’re in by providing minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures to protect it. Dr. Sam Assassa, our founder, strives to put the natural beauty and comfort of his patients first. We keep these values in mind every single day.
The world is your oyster in your 20s. We would love to help your skin shine as much as you do on the inside.
