BOTOX® is a type of treatment that helps people to look younger. It is used to rejuvenate your face and to eliminate wrinkles and lines that appear with age. However, people are often in debate as to when the right time to start is. The main answer is that you should start when you’re comfortable, but you can use a few pointers to help you figure out the answer.
What Age to Begin
Many individuals are looking for a quantitative answer to the question, and you may fall into that category. While no magic number exists, most people do not get BOTOX® when they are still in their twenties or younger. Many of the people who go for a BOTOX® procedure are 40 years of age or older. Some people will opt for the treatment when they are in their 30s. Yet all people age differently. You may develop wrinkles years before or after your sister does, for example. You should begin at an age that is comfortable for you, based on your needs.
When Other Methods Don’t Work
Running to get BOTOX® the very first time that you see a small line appear on your face is probably not necessary. You don’t want to think of BOTOX® as a last resort because it is not, but you can use other methods to treat minor problems. For example, if you are starting to worry about lines, you may wish to begin using anti-aging products that diminish the appearance of them. At some point, these drugstore products may not have the power to tackle your lines and wrinkles, and then is when you can call in BOTOX® for reinforcement.
BOTOX® as Preventative
While many people wait to get their first BOTOX® treatment until they are unhappy with their appearances, others decide to use BOTOX® as a preventative measure. Doing so may slow down the signs of aging on your face and prevent lines and wrinkles from forming.
A Long Wait
Some people are quick to get BOTOX® done as soon as they notice troubles beginning to form on your face, but others prefer to wait. You don’t want to wait a tremendous amount of time. Instead of building up fear and anxiety about the procedure, you can opt to have small areas treated. This can help you adjust to the treatment process.
