Does Preventative Botox Work?
Frown lines, crows’ feet, and expression wrinkles are inevitable as we age...or are they? As botox has become more and more common, people have realized that earlier injections can keep them from happening in the first place. Dermatologists agree that slowing down the use of these muscles early in adult life will prevent the lines from developing.
But how soon is too soon for preventative botox? According to Mary Lupo, M.D., if you’re as young as 24 “with finely etched lines—even when you’re skin is relaxed,” you’re a candidate. Botox is FDA approved and available for patients 18 years and older. However, people typically begin treatments in their mid-twenties. Getting botox before the age of 30, in conjunction with healthy lifestyle choices, can help slow down the aging process.
