At What Age Should I Start Botox?

Whether you’re considering Botox treatments to for excessive underarm sweating, to treat muscle spasms or to decrease the appearance of wrinkles in your face, licensed aesthetic professionals from around the country hold different opinions about the right age for starting treatments. Because there is a broad range of uses for Botox, studies show that consumers can start to receive treatment when they’re in their early 20’s. Both men and women generally start receiving treatments in their early 30’s.

Why Various Age Groups Use Botox

It has been known that individuals as young as 19 years of age have received Botox treatments. Young adults who wish to receive Botox treatments do so because they plan to get married or who have jobs in media. They use Botox to get an instant look that is free from wrinkles and flaws.

Young adults also receive Botox injections to treat various physical and medical issues, such as excessive sweating or muscle spasms.

Individuals who use Botox when they’re in their early 30’s are looking to prevent wrinkles from occurring under their eyes or soften a broad jawline. Those who are in their 40’s, 50’s or older have found that Botox injections have greatly improved their lives because the treatment acts as an age reducer.

Botox is Safe for Adults of All Ages

Botox is a natural purified protein that is used to relax certain muscle groups for either a cosmetic or medical reason. The treatment is safe for anyone 18 years of age or older. Studies have shown that side affects have occurred in less than 1 percent of all treated individuals around the world.

If you’re considering Botox treatments in the near future, contact a licensed aesthetic professional for a consultation.
