Your age affects a lot of things — the types of insurance plans you qualify for, the discounts you can get at the movie theater, and for those who look younger than they are, whether or not you still have to show your I.D. to order a glass of wine at dinner. But have you ever wondered if your age affects Botox? Spoiler alert: It does.
In some cases, getting Botox in your 20s can help you train your facial muscles to not move as much, preventing your skin from wrinkling as much as you get older. Some dermatologists may also recommend it to reduce facial muscle overexpression, which is completely genetic.
Your 30s are when you start noticing more fine lines and wrinkles in your appearance. Botox can help reduce and even get rid of those fine lines, whether you get the treatment as a quick fix for a particular event or you get it regularly.
Once you enter your 40s, your skin will start losing its volume and developing more fine lines at a more rapid pace. With this being the case, there may be certain wrinkles that are too etched into your skin to completely erase. However, regular Botox treatments can help you reduce those fine lines to what they would’ve looked like a decade before, still improving your appearance.
