When Is It Time for Botox Treatments?

Botox is a non-surgical treatment to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It works by blocking the signals that prompt the muscles in the face to contract. This smoothes out the skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles in older patients, but Botox can also be used in younger patients to prevent the future development of wrinkles.

Why Younger Patients Are Turning to Botox

Previously, Botox was virtually only used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles after they had already formed. This means that the typical age for Botox patients was around 45 and over. Botox treatment softens wrinkles that form due to repeated muscular contractions in the face and has been a trusted aesthetic treatment for decades. Now, patients in their 20s and 30s are opting to undergo Botox Injections well before wrinkles have already formed. Continue reading “When Is It Time for Botox Treatments?”
