B is for… Botox! Chances are you or someone you know has already had Botox injections a time or two. The stereotype that comes with the term are often controversial and untrue. Without research, most think that Botox will “freeze” your face or make you look unnatural, which is not the truth. When administered correctly, Botox will leave you looking younger and refreshed. You can find interactive before and after photos here.
A common question that comes with Botox is, “does it hurt?” And for most patients the common answer is no! Botox is administered with a very small and thin needle so the pain is often extremely minimal.
What you also may not know is that Botox isn’t just for people in their 40’s or 50’s, in fact starting Botox in your late 20’s or early 30’s is the best way to prevent long-term wrinkles. Preventative Botox is really the best way to get the most (long-term) benefits from your Botox treatment. All this to say, there is not a set age for Botox because it is a case-by-case evaluation. We recommend consulting your Botox specialist when deciding to inject.
