What Age Is Recommended to Start Botox Treatments?

Are you too young to get Botox treatments?  Do you think only women of a particular age resort to this treatment after their skin cream stops working? Think again. The best age to begin Botox treatments is when unwanted lines start to show on your face and start attracting uncomplimentary attention from friends and family.

Botox is the world’s most popular cosmetic treatment and has been for decades. It works best during the initial stages of dynamic wrinkle formation, so why wait?  Once those wrinkles etch deep and become more visible, Botox, as a muscle relaxant, helps soften their appearance. But if your skin becomes deeply grooved with age, these dramatic lines become more difficult to correct.

Botox is a tried-and-tested treatment to provide exceptional anti-aging results when administered by a trained, certified, experienced professional like Dr. Derrick Gale. To consult with a leading authority in the business, we encourage you to arrange a commitment-free consultation by calling (801) 506-6344 or filling out our online form today.

Botox in Your Twenties? Say Whaaat?

Although it may sound odd to have cosmetic improvements at a young age, it’s more popular than you may think. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Botox has seen a twenty-eight percent increase since 2010 for men and women between the ages of 20 and 29.

Preventative Botox is performed on patients in their twenties who’ve noticed fine lines beginning to form. These lines are caused by dynamic facial expressions like frowning and smiling, creating unwanted wrinkles and lines on the forehead, brow, and around the eyes. 

By introducing Botox to address these cosmetic concerns, you can reduce the possibility of these lines developing on a more alarming scale. Botox prevents muscle contraction temporarily where it’s applied. With these muscles paralyzed, the skin appears more relaxed, smoother, and firmer. The deep lines soften and, with regular treatment, have little chance of becoming deeply ingrained. Slowing down muscle movement in the early stage of adulthood is a practical anti-aging strategy to minimize superficial lines and aging of the face. 

And don’t worry, after treatment, you’ll still be able to smile. And smile you will when you understand how, over time, Botox can help you maintain your youthful beauty.

And It’s Not Just for Wrinkles!

Botox is also an excellent option for a variety of other aesthetic issues. For example, if you want to eliminate your gummy smile, an injection of Botox can make you selfie-ready in no time. Or, if your brows don’t have that trendy high arch, Botox can strategically lift them while softening those horizontal forehead wrinkles.  And If it’s a slimmer jawline you’re after, Botox can relax the masseter muscles and create that highly desired V-shape.

Obviously, Botox has numerous possibilities, many of which have nothing to do with age! Young or old, Botox can help you look your best now and for years to come.
