One of our most frequently asked questions is, “At what age should I begin Botox ®”?
Botox ® is a natural, purified protein that is injected into muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. The medication temporarily relaxes muscles by blocking nerve impulses. Once the muscles are at rest, the skin becomes smoother in appearance, which creates a more natural, relaxed image.
The idea of preventative Botox ® is when starting treatment early, lines will never become as severe as they would without Botox ® treatments. Therefore, you should not require as much Botox ® as you would had you waited to start treatment. Treating fine lines and wrinkles early on also increases the chances of you not having to invest in pricier, more invasive treatments down the road.
Botox ® treatments should be customized to you and your skin health goals. The least I’ve injected in one session is 4 units and the most I’ve injected is 90 units. Make sure your Botox ® is administered by a board certified medical provider with understanding of proper technique and safety for best results.
