While some men and women choose to start BOTOX® in their 20s to help prevent future wrinkles from forming, many others prefer to wait until they see the first signs of aging on their faces. Truthfully, the best age to start BOTOX depends on your personal preferences and goals—there really is no hard-and-fast rule for when you should get treatment.
If you’re thinking about getting BOTOX, use this quick guide to help you plan your procedure for the right time in your life.
BOTOX in Your 30s
For many people, the first signs of pesky wrinkles and creases start to show up on their skin in their 30s. Even though these wrinkles may not be very pronounced just yet, starting BOTOX can help to smooth them away and may help to prevent them from becoming deeper and more noticeable in the future with regular appointments.
BOTOX usually takes under 20 minutes to administer and can last for 3 to 6 months.
BOTOX in Your 40s and 50s
This is usually around the time that crow’s feet, brow lines and other eye-area wrinkles become more pronounced. BOTOX is typically the most effective injectable treatment for fine lines and wrinkles in the eye and forehead areas.
BOTOX in Your 60s and Beyond
There is no upper age limit for getting BOTOX. Those in their 60s, 70s and beyond can benefit from injectable treatments if the goal is to look more refreshed and rejuvenated. However, BOTOX isn’t going to make you look like you’re in your 20s or 30s again, so it’s important to have realistic expectations.
