BOTOX® has become one of the most popular wrinkle treatments currently available, but many people are unsure about when they should think about getting their first treatment. While the answer ultimately depends on your unique situation and goals, there are a few factors that go into deciding the best age to get BOTOX.

What’s the Best Age to Get BOTOX?

Studies show that BOTOX may have a preventative effect on wrinkles.

Ideally, the sooner you start BOTOX, the better your results may be in the long-term. There is some evidence that getting BOTOX regularly from a younger age can help to prevent the formation of new wrinkles down the road. So if you start getting BOTOX in your 20s, you may see fewer wrinkles in your 30s and 40s than if you were to wait another 10 or 20 years to get your first treatment.

This isn’t to say that people in their 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond still can’t benefit from BOTOX, though. In fact, this injectable wrinkle treatment is often used to help enhance and prolong the results of facial plastic surgery procedures like facelifts and brow lifts.

How Long Does BOTOX Last?

BOTOX usually lasts anywhere from 3 to 6 months, but this can vary from person to person. While the product will gradually fade away over this time, you may see some lasting benefits, such as fewer new wrinkles in the future.
