What Is the Right Age for BOTOX® Cosmetic?
- Posted on: Jan 15 2023
Are you curious about BOTOX® Cosmetic and what it can do for you? It is a treatment that is typically thought of as one for the older generation, but nowadays people are having it done at younger and younger ages. Read on for more information about BOTOX Cosmetic and what age is the right age to start!
What Is BOTOX Cosmetic?
BOTOX Cosmetic is very popular because of its many benefits. It is made from the botulinum toxin, which may sound concerning – but you don’t have to be worried about the word “toxin.” It is very safe when it is used correctly, and the procedure is FDA approved and has been used for decades for both men and women. It works by blocking the signals between the muscles and the nerves, which makes wrinkles relax. Besides being very safe, patients love BOTOX Cosmetic because injections can be given very quickly in your doctor’s office, and there is no downtime needed so that you can get right back into your day. The results can last for months, and it is much less expensive and much less hassle than having a facelift or another cosmetic surgery procedure. The risk of side effects is very low, and any side effects that do occur are very mild.
When Can I Start Getting BOTOX Cosmetic?
BOTOX Cosmetic has been approved for patients over the age of 18. Some patients start getting it in their late 20s or early 30s, either because they are starting to see wrinkles or because they want to keep wrinkles from ever having the chance to develop. If you start getting BOTOX Cosmetic at a younger age, you may need less of it as you age, as it weakens the muscles. This means that when you do get BOTOX Cosmetic when you are older, it will last longer and you’ll need fewer injections.
