How Soon Should I Start Botox?

Even though we can feel and act young for our entire lives, our body doesn’t seem to want to follow suit. Instead, we need to look at options to keep our youthful glow such as anti-ageing lotions and Botox injections. If you’re worried about lines and wrinkles setting in when you least expect them, you can always act sooner rather than later.

However, when is a good time start? Below, we run through what you can expect of your skin in various age groups, and how Botox injections can be beneficial for each stage.

When You Reach Your 20s

It may seem strange to suggest Botox injections in your 20s, but for some people, it’s a way in which to keep on top of their youthful glow, rejecting the notion that our skin must look as old as we are.  While the later 20s is more common for Botox injection requests, there are instances of treatment before the age of 25 as well.

However, if you are considering Botox injections in your 20s, think whether you really need it. Cosmetic specialists recommend not looking at dermal fillers until any frown or smile lines become more permanent.

Turning 30

During your 30s, you may find that you have a few fine lines and wrinkles. The severity of them can depend on how much time you spend in the sun and exposure to UV rays. If you have a strong, severe frown that doesn’t disappear from your face as soon as you resume your neutral facial expression, then Botox injections may start to look like a valid option. If you take care of your skin, however, you may not begin to see visible signs of ageing until your late 30s.

Let’s Talk About Turning 40

When you reach your 40s, you may find that more and more of your friends begin looking at Botox injections. Around this age, people tend to think about their fine lines and wrinkles a little more, wishing they could “turn back the clock”. While there are no time turners, you can help to smooth out some of those wrinkles by looking at your dermal filler options. The best age for Botox injections is between 35 and 40, but it can depend on whether you have had more sun exposure, you smoke, or you have lighter skin.

Choosing to get Botox injections is a personal choice, but your age can make a difference to how it can benefit both your skin and your self-esteem. Talk to your local cosmetic specialist if you are ready to look into Botox injections.
