Worried about wrinkles? 20-somethings are now getting preventative Botox
HOUSTON — In 2019, more and more people are making a living off their looks.
Casandra Martinez is an Instagram influencer in Houston and a reality TV personality. At 24 years old, she’s already a Botox veteran.
“It’s crazy how our generation is like this. Now, on top of my nails, I need to maintain my lash extensions and all this. Now, it’s Botox,” she said.
Instead of reversing wrinkles, Casandra is preventing them from ever forming.
“I’m a huge fan of preventative Botox. I started a year ago when I was 23 years old,” she said.
Casandra is a patient at Utopia Plastic Surgery and Med Spa.
“I don’t want to say we’re quite Houston Botox Nation, but it’s very prevalent in this city,” said Dr. Franklin Rose, a plastic surgeon.
Dr. Rose says his office starts taking patients for preventative Botox at 20 years old.
How do you know if you’re a candidate?
“Well we just get a little mirror and hold it up. All of cosmetic surgery and these techniques are very patient directed,” said Dr. Rose.
Katye, 22, invited KHOU 11 News to sit in on her first Botox injection.
“It’s actually a wrinkle that runs in my family. My mom and all her sisters, sorry guys, all ended up with it. I don’t want to end up with it,” said Katye.
If you think women in their 20’s are too young for Botox, Casandra and Martinez will tell you waiting for your first wrinkle means you’re too late.
“If I can prevent it and take it away, why not do it?” said Casandra. “It’s not that I’m insecure or confident in myself, I am. That’s something I’m happy about. It’s just little things I can fix here and there, so why not?”

“Botox not only prevents fine wrinkles and lines from forming but can prevent the deepening of those wrinkles that you already have that are formed by muscle movement,” says Dr. Rose. “Potentially, if you start early, you will weaken the facial muscles so that you don’t have to get Botox as often as you age.”Due to her rising popularity as a reality star on television, 24 year-old Casandra decided to started receiving cosmetic treatments early. Casandra has already competed to find love on many Reality TV shows such as ABC’s The Proposal, MTV’s Are You The One? and Are You The One: Second Chances. Casandra has already had a breast augmentation by Dr. Franklin Rose – now, in preparation for filming Temptation Island she is opting for even more cosmetic treatments such as Botox and more in order to maintain her competetive edge. “I love the results I get from Botox.” Says Casandra. “I already get fillers and other treatments from Dr. Rose’s office and I just want to up my game and look my very best! I’m not going to stop maintaining my looks any time soon – I am in it to win it!”
