Preventative neurotoxin injections, also known as "preventative tox," refers to the use of botulinum toxin (Botox) injections as a way to proactively treat the early signs of aging or to prevent the development of wrinkles.
The idea behind this approach is that by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles, the skin will remain smooth and youthful-looking, even before the formation of wrinkles becomes noticeable.
The injections are typically administered in areas that are prone to developing wrinkles, such as the forehead, around the eyes (crow's feet), and between the eyebrows (frown lines).
It is important to note that while preventative neurotoxin injections may help slow the aging process and keep skin looking youthful, they do not stop the aging process altogether. It is also important to have these injections performed by a licensed medical professional to minimize the risk of side effects and to ensure that the treatment is done correctly.
