For years, Botox has been known as one of the best treatment options for non-surgical facial rejuvenation. Botox can help to soften the appearance of issues like crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles which can give the face a smoother and more youthful appearance. One thing that a lot of people want to know is, when is the right time to get Botox?
The first thing to know is that Botox is approved for use in patients who are at least 18 years old. The next thing you should know is that Botox can be used as a preventative measure to help combat the visible signs of facial aging.
One of the common causes of facial wrinkles is repetitive facial muscle use. Things like smiling, frowning, and squinting all cause the facial muscles to contract which causes the skin above these muscles to wrinkle and crease. Over the years, repetitive facial muscles use causes these lines and wrinkles to become more prominent. With enough time, these wrinkles and lines can be visible even when the muscles are not contracting.
Botox works by temporarily paralyzing facial muscles which prevents the skin from wrinkling and forming creases. By receiving routine Botox injections, you can help to maintain the smooth and youthful look of your skin for longer. That is why starting regular Botox treatments in your late 20s or early 30s can do wonders for your appearance.
