Are signs of aging starting to creep up? Maybe it’s a few crows feet around your eyes or deep smile lines are starting to set in. There’s good news: whether you’re 45, 55, or 65+, there’s no such thing as “too old for BOTOX®.” There are, of course, a few important factors to consider before determining if it’s the right treatment for you. To learn more about how BOTOX® works, keep reading!
What Is BOTOX®?
When it was discovered that BOTOX® was the secret to celebrities’ never-aging looks, it quickly skyrocketed in popularity. Essentially, meticulously injecting botulinum toxin (the scientific name for BOTOX®) relaxes hyperactive muscles. As a result, fine lines and wrinkles are significantly less noticeable almost instantly. To this day, it’s one of the most sought-after treatments for addressing:
- Lines between the eyebrows
- Crows feet
- Smile and smoker’s lines
- Wrinkles along the forehead
Is There an Age Limit for BOTOX®?
No, there isn’t an upper age limit for BOTOX®. However, it is important to have realistic expectations. For example, if you’re 65, BOTOX® won’t make you look 30 again. Additionally, overuse can result in a “frozen” look, which is far from youthful. The goal is to instead smooth fine lines and wrinkles in a way that makes you look like the absolute best version of yourself!
How Quickly Will I See Results?
BOTOX® comes with a number of benefits, including that it’s minimally invasive and can be completed in just one appointment. One of the biggest draws of BOTOX®, however, is that you don’t have to wait long to see results. In fact, you’ll likely notice a difference within a week! If that wasn’t impressive enough, the results can also last for 3-6 months with proper care. The best way to keep your skin looking supple and youthful is by following a solid skincare regimen, wearing sunscreen daily, drinking plenty of water, and eating a diet filled with nutrient-dense foods.
If you’re interested in BOTOX®, then don’t let your age stop you from scheduling a consultation. In as little as one visit, you’ll be a step closer to the revitalized, youthful appearance you’ve been missing!
