When Should I Start Botox Treatments?

Starting the anti-aging process and maintenance with Botox cosmetic treatments is a very personal decision and one that shouldn’t be taken lightly. “Being informed as much as possible on the treatment itself is one of the best ways to ensure you are making a correct decision for yourself,” shares Selina Santos, certified physician assistant at Sanova Dermatology in Austin, Texas. Its also important to know just what to expect from the procedure.

Botox is an FDA-approved drug that when injected into the facial muscles, temporarily blocks nerve impulses, resulting in the appearance of smooth, wrinkle-free skin,” explains PA Santos.

Many patients begin treatments in their late 20s as a preventative measure to soften existing wrinkles and stop new wrinkles from forming.

Already out of your 20s? Don’t worry! Receiving Botox treatments in your 30s will still give you the look you are trying to achieve. “People in their 30s start to notice fine lines and Botox can help to soften those lines,” PA Santos says. Treatments should be scheduled every 3 months for maintenance. Getting Botox treatments in your 20s and 30s can prevent you from having more invasive procedures later on in life and leave you with a lasting, youthful appearance.

If you are in your 40s your skin cell turnover has slowed down and wrinkles are typically more visible. The lines you do have may be etched into your skin even when you are not moving your facial muscles. Botox, with consistent use, can still help to erase the look of wrinkles and fine lines.

Botox is a great way to look younger and feel better about yourself no matter what age you are.
