It may seem silly to get Botox or Dysport injections in your 20s, but in addition to their ability to temporarily reduce wrinkles, these formulations of botulinum toxin can actually prevent wrinkles before they’re etched into your face.

By stopping the repeated muscle contractions that contribute to wrinkles, Botox and Dysport can be used to help break line-forming habits such as frowning or squinting, so you can stay furrow-free for the foreseeable future. And compared to the price of surgery down the line, it may prove to be more cost-effective.

However, some doctors aren’t quick to reach for the syringe with younger patients, believing it doesn’t make much sense to use Botox or Dysport if there aren’t any visible wrinkles. Be sure to thoroughly discuss the range of wrinkle-preventing options with your dermatologist or plastic surgeon before opting for the most expensive or invasive treatment.
