You will find a lot of advice online about when you should start getting Botox®, but the truth is that the right time for each patient is different for each patient. A variety of factors including skin color, sun exposure, and even family history (such as deep creases between the brows that tend to run in the family) play into the development of wrinkles on your face.
Botox works by relaxing the muscles under the skin, which allows the skin to relax instead of contracting with each facial expression. This prevents fine wrinkles from appearing and deepening over time. A trend among women in their twenties is to begin Botox injections before wrinkles appear. This may help to prevent deeper wrinkles from forming if treatments are continued consistently.
As women age into their 30s and 40s, facial skin begins to thin and wrinkles become more apparent. Most women begin Botox treatments during this timeframe because they feel their appearance is aged by the visible wrinkles. Regular Botox treatments can soften the appearance of wrinkles and leave you looking years younger.
