BOTOX® Cosmetic is an extremely effective way to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, particularly crow’s feet (lines around the eyes) and forehead wrinkles. It is FDA approved for patients between the ages of 18-65, and has become very popular due to its exceptional results, minimally invasive nature, and strong safety record.
Our Denver R.N. Injectors are often asked about the appropriate age to begin BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment. Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to this question. It is a very personal decision that you must make based on how you feel about your appearance.
We regularly treat patients in their mid-to-late 20s and early 30s who would like to get rid of wrinkles as soon as they first start to appear, and we also have many patients who have waited until they are a little bit older to begin undergoing treatments. In general, if you feel like you are ready to take the first step towards reducing the appearance of your wrinkles, then it is the right time to start using BOTOX® Cosmetic.
Recently, there have been several studies published regarding BOTOX® Cosmetic as a preventative treatment. These studies suggest that by starting BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment in the early stages of wrinkle development, you can actually prevent them from becoming more pronounced as you age. Therefore, you may want to consider starting treatment at the first signs of wrinkles in order to preserve a more youthful facial appearance for years to come.
