What is botox? Is 50 too late for botox?

Oct 26

What age should you start Botox?

Preventative Botox is an excellent solution for those who want to keep early fine lines from turning into full-blown wrinkles. Botox is approved for patients who are 18 years old and up, and most experts agree that patients in their mid to late 20s and early 30s are at a great age for preventative Botox treatment.


How long does Botox last?

Botox treatments typically last anywhere from 3 to 4 months. However, some patients have reported lasting results for up to 6 months, while others have seen shorter-lived results of only 2 months. It is also common for first-time Botox users to notice that the effects may not last as long initially but may last longer after the second treatment.


Is 50 too late for Botox?

There's no age limit for having Botox, but it is not recommended for cosmetic reasons on people under the age of 18.


Who should not use Botox?

Botox might not be right for you if any of the following apply: 

-You're pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a neurological disease.

-Botox doesn't work for all wrinkles (check with a doctor first).

-You're allergic to cow's milk protein.


What should I avoid after Botox?

After receiving Botox, it's important to wait at least 3 hours before lying down as well as 4 hours before going into any saunas, hot tubs, or tanning booths. This helps to prevent bruising because heat can raise your blood pressure. Once the 4 hours have passed, you can resume your regular activities.


What can you do instead of Botox?

Botox alternatives:

  • Other injectables, such as Dermal Fillers

  • Acupuncture
  • Vitamins. Such as Vitamin C cream
  • Facial creams. 
  • Chemical peels.
