While there’s no right or wrong age to get BOTOX, there are some things to keep in mind that can affect the way you approach injectable wrinkle treatments at various stages of life.

BOTOX in Your 20s

Many people are surprised to learn that getting BOTOX sooner rather than later may have some preventative effects to help keep future lines and wrinkles at bay. One study that examined the effects of BOTOX over a 13-yeard period found that getting regular injections can help to prevent dynamic expression lines from becoming static wrinkles over time.

BOTOX in Your 30s

Lots of women and men start to really notice the first signs of skin aging in their 30s, so this stage of life is a popular time to begin thinking about getting BOTOX and other nonsurgical cosmetic treatments.

Keep in mind, though, that regular injections are necessary, as the effects of BOTOX will gradually fade away over time.

Even if you didn’t start BOTOX in your 20s, you might still be able to reap its preventative benefits in your 30s.

BOTOX in Your 40s, 50s and Beyond

It’s really never too late to start BOTOX treatments if you’re bothered by the appearance of lines and wrinkles in your forehead, brow and eye areas. But if loss of facial volume is also a concern, your plastic surgeon or injectable wrinkle treatment provider might recommend combining BOTOX with dermal fillers.
