When Is The Best Time To Start Botox?

We all know the basics of good skin care. Avoid smoking, sunbathing, get your eight hours of beauty sleep, ect. But lifestyle habits can have a varied effect on your skin depending on your age. Drinking a few too many cocktails in the sun will have less damaging effect on a twenty-year-old than a fifty year old. So when should you start thinking about wrinkle treatments?

Botox® In Your Twenties

‘Preventative Botox®’ is becoming more and more popular with young women. Many women in their twenties are having Botox® in Bournemouth to reduce the risk of wrinkles and lines forming too deeply in future. This may be a good idea for those who are noticing faint lines from squinting or frowning. Early Botox® is also recommended for twenty-somethings who regularly sunbathe or smoke.

Botox® In Your Thirties

Your thirties are normally when most people start to see noticeable wrinkles and lines. Women who have started their own family (and suffering from lack of sleep!) may be more susceptible to early wrinkles. Similarly, stress, smoking and sun rays will start to cause more damage to the skin than before. This is a good time to start Botox® wrinkle treatments to prevent permanent deep lines.

Botox® In Your Forties

At forty, most women will begin to form prominent crow’s feet and frown lines. Botox® can be applied to these target areas to rejuvenate the skin and take years off you! This is also a good time to start chemical peels in Bournemouth, which stimulate collagen production and reduce the signs of aging.

Botox® In Your Fifties

By the time women hit fifty, deep lines have formed around the eyes and mouth. The face may have also lost volume and elasticity. We recommend using a combination of Botox® for pronounced lines and dermal fillers to bring back a youthful volume and glow to your complexion.

Botox® In Your Sixties

Botox is for everyone and it’s never too late. Botox® is an ideal option for mature women who don’t wish to under-go cosmetic surgery but want to improve their appearance. Although Botox® alone may not make you look twenty one again, they can be combined with a dermal filler 8 point facelift to achieve a fresh, younger look.
