Botox is one of the safest and most popular aesthetic treatments in the US, and for good reason! It can help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in multiple areas of the face, achieving a smoother, more youthful-looking appearance.
Not only is it used for cosmetic purposes, but Botox can also be used for treating issues such as: migraines, teeth grinding, and excessive sweating.
More recently, young people are using Botox as a preventative measure to stop the aging process in its tracks. If you’re wondering when to start Botox, you’re in the right place. Read on and we’ll tell you what you need to know about Botox and if it’s right for you!
What exactly is Botox and how does it work?
Botox is a type of botulinum toxin. When injected by a licensed professional in a safe dose, it will temporarily weaken the muscles’ ability to wrinkle by preventing any repetitive motion to that muscle.
The result is the temporary appearance of smooth and wrinkle-free skin!
How Is Preventative Botox Different?
Preventative Botox, or what some may call as “Baby Botox”, isn’t any different from the Botox that is used to treat more mature patients. The only difference between the two is the age at which the patient starts receiving treatments.
Most people wait until they start to see wrinkles before they seek Botox treatments, but preventative treatments use Botox to treat wrinkles before they emerge. By injecting the muscles that typically cause wrinkles around the mouth, eyes, and eyebrows before they start to develop wrinkles, you can prevent them before they happen.
When is a good age to start Botox Treatments?
Unfortunately, there is no set rule on when you should start receiving Botox treatments. Since everybody’s skin is different, some people might develop fine lines and wrinkles earlier in life while others might develop them later. Although many people start getting preventive treatments in their 20s and 30s, there’s no one set age on when you should start getting it.
Instead of focusing on the exact age, once you start noticing fine lines beginning to settle, that’s when you should consider Botox. If you want to prevent the earliest fine lines from becoming full-blown wrinkles, preventative Botox can be the solution.
What if I don’t like it?
The best (and also worst!) thing about Botox is that the results are only temporary. If you don’t like it or don’t feel like keeping it up, you don’t have to.
