If you’re considering Botox treatment, look no further. At New Wave Clinic located in High Wycombe, our certified medical aesthetic professionals will perform the procedure to obtain natural and long lasting results while keeping you health and satisfaction our number one priority.

BOTOX was formerly considered a therapy mainly for the rich and famous who desired to maintain their youthful appearance. Still, younger patients are increasingly turning to these treatments to reverse and prevent the effects of ageing. Although the age at which wrinkles first become noticeable varies from person to person, many considering the procedure may choose to begin BOTOX treatments before that time.

When should BOTOX be administered? How effective are preventative procedures when performed in one’s twenties compared to those achieved in one’s forties? We’ll address these and other concerns regarding when to begin BOTOX treatment. As it turns out, the answer is “it depends.”

BOTOX Breakdown

Over six million BOTOX treatments occur yearly, making it a favoured non-surgical cosmetic treatment. BOTOX is made of purified toxin protein from the Clostridium botulinum bacterium that is extracted in the lab and packaged separately from any live bacteria. It is used for more than just cosmetic purposes and has been approved by the FDA for several medical uses. Such procedures include treating chronic migraines, ocular strabismus, an overactive bladder, and more. Research and clinical trials are being performed to test many other ways in which BOTOX can help patients with varying needs.

Do You Have Wrinkles That Are Visible?

While the judgement is still out on whether or not prophylactic Botox is effective, aestheticians and physicians generally agree that once wrinkles begin to emerge, it’s time for Botox.

Do You Get Wrinkles on Your Forehead or Around Your Eyes?

Although Botox is miraculous, it can only be used on particular creases.

When BOTOX is used for cosmetic purposes, a tiny needle is used to inject it just under the skin of the patient in places where wrinkles and fine lines are caused by the movement of facial muscles. When BOTOX is injected, it works to make wrinkles look less deep over the next three to seven days. On average, the effect lasts three months. Repeated treatments make the skin smoother because they keep the muscles from getting stronger.

Ideal Ages

So, let’s get back to the original question: when is it best to begin BOTOX injections to reduce the appearance of small lines?
As was previously indicated, the answer depends on your goals for the effects of BOTOX on your skin. Others with more sun damage may need to begin treatments in their late twenties or early thirties, while those with more resilient skin or good genes may be able to wait until their forties or beyond.

There is no universally perfect time to start caring for your skin; instead, it depends on your unique skin type and your dermatologist’s recommendations. Your competent dermatologist will take into account more than simply your age when making recommendations for your skincare, including things like your skin type, sun damage history, lifestyle, and personality.

BOTOX in Your 20's

If you’re in your twenties or younger and want to get started, here are some things to consider. You might get away with very little or no BOTOX at all if your skin is wrinkle-free and you take the time and effort to protect it from the sun.
Consult a skilled BOTOX practitioner at New Wave Clinic about baby BOTOX, which won’t break the budget and may be beneficial if you spend more time in the sun, have used tanning beds, are a smoker, or are displaying early symptoms of wrinkles due to family trends.

BOTOX in Your 30's

This is the time when the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin slows and static wrinkles appear. If you’re in your 30s and you smoke regularly or live at a high altitude, both of which put extra stress on your skin, it may be time to start looking into skincare options.

Depending on how much time you spend in the sun without protection, wrinkles become more noticeable in your early 30s. BOTOX may be useful as a prophylactic or preventive measure right now. When you’re in your 30s, you might want to start thinking about skin care treatments if you often smoke or reside at a high altitude.Baby BOTOX can do wonders in this age.

BOTOX in Your 40's

Patients may notice an increase in the severity of their wrinkles around the age of 40 due to the skin’s thinned appearance due to the breakdown of elastin and collagen.

Patients may be at their best around the age of 40, when the skin begins to thin, elastin and collagen start to break down clearly, and wrinkles become more pronounced. When permanent lines appear when the skin is at rest and continue to show when the skin is stretched with the fingers, it’s time to take action.
