So far, by the law, you should be not younger than 24 years old. But there is no specific age that which you should or shouldn’t start Botox.
However, chances are you won’t need to for a good few years, as long as you take good care of your skin.
You can stave off those wrinkles with a good lifestyle, a good healthy diet, and by making sure you have a good sun care regime.
Smokers are also much more prone to wrinkles, as the chemicals in cigarettes hurt the skin, making it look older than it is, so avoid the cigarettes as much as you can and, preferably, quit.
It’s best to wait to have Botox until you really feel like you need it!
Because Botox injections are the most common cosmetic procedures that are used to reduce the signs of skin ageing it also works on different areas of the face to minimise ageing signs and restore the youthful appearance of the skin.
Botox can be used:
To reduce wrinkles between the eyebrows.
To reduce wrinkles around the eyes.
Decrease horizontal creases in the forehead.
To diminish lines at the corner of the mouth.
And do not forget the neck, Botox also is being used to lift the neck. During this treatment, botox is injected into the neck muscle called the platysma. It prevents the movement of an overactive muscle that causes the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the neck, making it tighter. Another area which could be treated with botox is the masseter muscle. Relaxing this muscle with botox will help stop grinding teeth (if you suffer from bruxism) and also slim the face.
So if you start to consider Botox treatment, but are still not sure, book a consultation with a competent practitioner who will be happy to answer all your questions.
