Botox is still one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the United States. If you’ve been interested in it, you’re not alone. But it might be hard to know when to start or what the full benefits are. Let’s take a look at some of the most common questions about Botox to help you make your decision.
Age Isn’t Necessarily a Factor
There isn’t a magical age to start getting Botox, though more and more people are starting Botox in their late 20s as a preventative measure. No matter when you start, it will work the same way. Botox temporarily weakens the muscles that cause dynamic lines which will eventually turn into static lines or wrinkles. If you start minimizing these lines early, they won’t become as deep. But even if you’ve in your 50s or 60s you can still make an impact on your present (and future) static lines. However, the reality is that you won’t see an instant improvement as those who started earlier.
Pair Botox With Other Fillers
If you’re mostly looking for preventative measures or aren’t looking for a serious change in fine lines on your face, Botox alone should be enough. But if you’re looking for a more significant change you may want to couple it with a hyaluronic acid filler to plump deeper creases or laser resurfacing to make them shallower. These treatments can also help to stimulate the production of collagen in your skin, which is the substance that naturally plumps and firms your skin. Meaning this multi-pronged approach can possibly give you even better results than early adopters to Botox if you’re diligent, leading to fewer maintenance treatments down the line.
It’s Up To You
Either way, it’s up to you! If you want to start Botox early in life to help with prevention, that’s great. If you want to take a more natural approach and see what happens, that works too but you’ll have a longer process to begin anti-aging later on.
