The range of motions our faces express every day is a beautiful thing. We use our faces to convey emotions and communicate with people. Over time however, our face can show the effects these motions have on our skin by developing fine lines and wrinkles. For some, this process is perfectly acceptable and a normal part of aging. However, you may want to prevent or even reverse some of these effects and Botox is a great method for doing so. When is the best time to start looking for treatment options?
Botox is a popular treatment approved by the FDA to treat crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines, in addition to lines around the lips, neck, nose, and lower face. Treatments are typically quick and painless, and many people consider it to be a treatment reserved for their later years. However, there is no magic age when you should begin Botox treatments. Among the list of factors that contribute to your fine lines and wrinkles, are your genetic makeup and skin history, two factors that can be wildly different between individuals. These differences mean that your Botox needs may be different than others.
Ask yourself if the appearance of facial lines will bother you. If so, it may be a good idea to schedule a consultation with our office. There are a variety of indicators that you may be at risk for developing lines and wrinkles earlier than you may life. For example, if you’ve noticed a parent or family member that has developed an aged looking appearance early in their life, it may indicate that you are also at risk. Similarly, if you find yourself pursing your lips or furrowing your brow frequently, you might consider preventative Botox treatments to help relax these muscles and prevent the development of lines and wrinkles. When it comes to your Botox treatment, deciding the right time to begin is up to you and your goals. The best way to understand your needs and your options is to consult with our office on your goals and concerns. You can do so at any age just by scheduling an appointment with our team. You can rely on our understanding of facial cosmetics to help you decide whether Botox is right for you, both now and in the future
