What Age Should a Person Start Botox?

Over the years, Botox procedures have become extremely popular and much more main stream. Although Botox has been around for a while, people have noticed a trend in younger patients seeking Botox injections, largely due to reality TV.   So, how young is too early to begin Botox?

It has been clearly known for quite a while now that frown lines, crows’ feet, and forehead furrows are all a result of constant folding of the skin from normal day to day expressions. Most individuals attempt to fix these folds and wrinkles once they’ve reached their 40s, 50s, and 60s, when these wrinkles are fully developed. But people are now starting to realize that if they get Botox injections earlier, it can prevent these wrinkles from ever happening in the first place.   The thought process is that you slow down the use of the specific muscles at an earlier age, then lines may never even develop. Instead of trying to go backwards and fix a wrinkle that is already there, it may be easier to inhibit it from developing in the first place.

Younger women that have begun injections in their twenties say they have noticed a significant difference between their skin and the skin of others their age that haven’t used Botox.  These women also say that they feel using Botox injections as a preventative technique has been proven to be extremely successful.
