The best time to begin Botox treatment

Are you wondering if it’s time for Botox? If so, the answer is probably, “Yes.” Patients often ask if it’s too soon, or too late, for Botox. In reality, the best time to begin antiaging is now, no matter what your age. Image Dermatology in Montclair, NJ sees adults of all ages, for preventive and corrective treatment.

Early treatment: Is it too soon for Botox?

The earlier you begin Botox the better. If your forehead never develops a crease, then you will never have a big dent or permanent line there.

The first sign of crow’s feet might seem insignificant. It’s just a few fine lines, and they disappear when you relax your face. However, this is an indication of muscle rigidity, the cumulative result of years of repetitive facial expressions. As time goes on, the muscles become more rigid, making lines and wrinkles more pronounced. Eventually, permanent creases form in the skin, and the lines do not disappear when you relax.

Botox treatment works by reducing nerve signals to the muscles, preventing excess contraction. It can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles at any age. When began early, it can actually help slow facial aging. By keeping the muscles soft, it prevents creases from forming in overlying skin.

Mature skin: Is it too late for Botox?

Perhaps you are already past the preventive stage. Wrinkles, lines, and facial folds are well-developed. Don’t worry; it’s never too late for to begin anti-aging treatment. Botox can reduce lines and superficial wrinkles, even if they are set in. However, aging affects the face in many ways besides muscular rigidity. Therefore, Botox is often used as part of a multi-faceted treatment plan for comprehensive antiaging. Dermal fillers, skin resurfacing, Kybella, and other procedures may be recommended as adjunct treatments.
