Botox prevents new wrinkles or only treats them?
If I were to get Botox and use it for a period and then stop were new wrinkles prevented during that time? Or is it just a band aid that hides them as long as you're taking it? I'm confused.

I think it does a little bit of both. it helps to prevent new ones as well as camouflages the ones you have. Notice I said help prevent new ones as nothing can truly stop the aging process. i was speaking with a friend on the west coast who has a plastic surgeon in beverly hills that was on the fda trial tests for botox. one of them tested was a twin and shes been using botox ever since then (for 12 years now) and the other twin that lives in germany hasnt. well it turns out the twin that was using botox looks as if her facial skin hasnt aged yet her twin that never got botox is completely opposite. i think what the makers of botox will start to do to sell even more of their product will start pitching it as a preventive treatment to prevent signs of aging. when they lose their patent theyll almost certainly be resorting to marketing like this im sure.

If you can afford regular Botox treatments early on it is probably better for anti aging. Then again we don't know for sure the long term effects of Botox so I'm always a skeptic when it comes to new products on the market. I like to see them used at least 20 or 30 years before I give them my stamp of safety.
