Should I Get Botox?

Botox: to get it or not to get it. This is one of the biggest questions of the past several years. The age range for Botox injections has expanded, bringing this question to the forefront of people’s minds. The question of the right timing has become somewhat ambiguous due to the various ways in which Botox can be used. So, if you find yourself asking if you should get Botox, chances are you are a good candidate. To help you make your decision, we offer a few clues about Botox-readiness.

You Might be Ready for Botox if

  • Deep creases are visible when you express yourself. When we move the face, lines appear. This is normal. The lines are referred to as dynamic wrinkles and, when we stop making a certain expression, they go away. The thing about dynamic wrinkles is that they create pathways in the skin and eventually become etched permanently. Some people get Botox at this time to prevent this from happening too soon. This is sometimes called “preventive Botox.”
  • Your skin is thinning and permanent lines are getting deeper. By the time most people reach their mid-thirties or forties, they have a few fine lines in areas like the outer edges of the eyes or between the eyebrows. Frown lines, in particular, make the face look less friendly. This is a common problem for which people seek Botox. When the skin is also thinning, it may be necessary to combine Botox with other treatments, like dermal fillers.
  • The symmetry of your face has changed. An interesting thing happens to many people as they age: they lose symmetry in their eyebrows. Over time, due to a change in muscle and skin tone, one eyebrow may sit lower on the forehead than the other. One of the ways that Botox is often used is to lift one or both brows to a more uniform, youthful position.

Botox has been one of the most popular injectable procedures since it first became available. Even in light of additional injectables being developed, Botox remains a go-to. Why? Because it works!
