When You Should Consider Botox

Nowadays, the age of people opting to get Botox is getting younger and younger because they are after the treatment’s preventive benefits. Call us at Westgate Dermatology and Laser Center - Winston Salem for a complimentary consultation to determine if Botox is right for you. In the meantime, here are general recommendations for when you should consider getting Botox.

During Your 20s

Most dermatologists recommend Botox injections for people in their 20s when they have lines that are starting to stick around.  Once you see these expression lines remaining when your face is at rest and moisturized, you should consider preventive Botox injections. In some individuals, this could be during their mid-20s.

During Your 30s

Your expressions, muscle movement, and amount of sun damage will all come into play when deciding to receive Botox in your 30s. Most individuals, however, regardless of gender, start getting Botox injections in their 30s because of lines on the forehead, eyes, and around the lips. 

During Your 40s

In most cases, the most suitable time to start Botox injections would depend on a person’s lifestyle.  If your lifestyle involves a lot of sun exposure or is tougher on your skin, like if you live in a high altitude or you’re a smoker, then you might need to start Botox much earlier.
