Have you ever seen a celebrity that seems to have found the Fountain of Youth? Well, they haven’t been drinking magical spring water, they’ve been using BOTOX! With a few injections, you can erase fine lines and prevent deep wrinkles. Since it is becoming more and more popular for people in their mid-to-late 20’s to seek this treatment, many patients are wondering if they are too old for BOTOX. The answer? Not really! Keep reading to learn what to expect from this service as you age.

What Can BOTOX Do?

According to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, one of the most popular cosmetic procedures nationwide is BOTOX. In fact, over 7 million people chose to undergo this wrinkle-erasing service in 2016 alone. However, it can also be used to treat patients who struggle with chronic migraines, severe underarm sweating, and TMJ disorder. So, BOTOX can be used in a medical and cosmetic capacity.

How Is BOTOX Different for Older Patients?

When your skin and muscle tone have lost all their laxity, then a patient is considered to be “Beyond BOTOX.” Fortunately, this isn’t tied to a specific age. After all, each patient has a different lifestyle, genetics, skincare regimen, etc. With that being said, it is important to have realistic expectations about the results of BOTOX as you get older. For example, if you are 60 years old and hoping to walk out of your appointment looking 30 again, BOTOX isn’t the answer. However, these injections can provide you with a fresher, more rejuvenated look!

When Can You Expect to See Results?

Since BOTOX is such a powerful treatment, the first signs of improvement can typically be seen within two weeks. From there, the results will continue to become more and more evident. Typically, the effects last for three to twelve months, depending on factors like your lifestyle habits. With this in mind, make sure to use quality skincare products, limit your sun exposure, and manage your stress. It is also a good idea to drink plenty of water, eat a balanced diet, and avoid poor habits, like smoking.

BOTOX has helped countless patients across the world achieve a rejuvenated, youthful look again. If you are interested in pursuing this fine line-erasing treatment, don’t let your age stop you!
