There are a number of cosmetic procedures which can be performed quickly and provide an immediate ‘bang for your buck.’ Sometimes referred to as ‘lunchtime procedures,’ Botox is one of these that are an excellent option. Botox has many benefits, so when is it the right time to get Botox treatment?

The right time for starting any type of cosmetic facial treatment is typically determined by how apparent any wrinkles or lines are on your face. If you don’t see any lines yet, then it is probably not the ideal time. However, for men or women with lighter eyes, hair or skin tones, facial wrinkles will develop faster.

Factors to Consider

Botox is a relatively safe nonsurgical procedure which temporarily reduces your frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. It involves several tiny injections which block the nerve impulses to the muscles in your treated region, thereby reducing muscle activity which causes the thin, fine lines.
For many patients, facial treatments correlate to the number 9 – meaning your 29th, 39th or 49th birthday. The best candidates are those who:

  • have no neuromuscular disease history (i.e. myasthenia gravis or multiple sclerosis)
  • are at least 18 years old
  • are not nursing or pregnant
  • are physically healthy

Bear in mind, though, that everyone responds differently to specific treatments, so be sure to discuss your options by consulting with your med spa staff.
