How Young Is “Too Young” for BOTOX?
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all? If you are like most of us, including the evil queen, wrinkles and fine lines may be top of mind. But, can you be too young for BOTOX? Impact Medical Rejuvenation of Tampa shares more below.
Transforming faces since the 1980s, BOTOX is a leading anti-aging treatment. Many patients flock to this treatment because the results are excellent, fast, and can last for months. Using a protein derived from botulinum toxin, this injectable prevents and reduces the appearance of dynamic facial wrinkles. These wrinkles only appear with certain facial expressions and generally disappear when the face rests. Sometimes, you may hear them referred to as laugh lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, or even marionette lines. As we age, these wrinkles take longer to fade or, in some cases, can take up permanent residency on the face. During this time, we also lose proteins like collagen and elastin that support hydration and elasticity. Working with a professional can help you design an anti-aging treatment plan that will combat those uninvited guests.
Because each face is different, it’s important to note that there is no set age to begin BOTOX treatments. The FDA has approved this treatment for patients 18 years and older though the majority of patients begin treatments in their 20s and 30s. However, because wrinkles usually form after your 20s, use a general rule to consider BOTOX at the first sign of noticeable lines or wrinkles on your face. For many, this happens somewhere in their 30s.
