How Soon Should You Start Botox?

How Soon Should You Start Botox?

Age is just a number and there is no standard answer to this question. The answer is really based on how you look and feel. Some people may retain their youthful appearance into their mid-30s and others experience facial volume loss and signs of wrinkling in their early 20s.

What is important is that you are medically informed before making the decision to start Botox. After thoroughly understanding the implications of the procedure some women opt for Preventative Botox – Getting Botox injected into areas that may develop wrinkles in the future. The procedure helps in retraining the muscles of facial expression to prevent intense contractions which cause wrinkling over a period of time.

Botox has been around for quite a while and the science behind this therapy has advanced far enough to ensure that the procedure is very safe and can be tailored to meet your aesthetic needs. In addition to anti-wrinkle treatment, Botox is also used for treatment of migraines, muscle spasms, and hyperhidrosis (heavy sweating).

In most instances, women in their early 20s do not need Botox for wrinkles. However, some young women may benefit if there is obvious asymmetry such as a droopy eye brow. In cases of severe sun damage, fair-skinned women in their mid and late 20s may benefit from Botox treatment. In your 30s and 40s, Botox treatment can be used to substantially improve your appearance and more importantly improve your confidence in facing life’s challenges.
