preventative-botoxOften, people wait until laugh lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet develop before even considering BOTOX. But what they probably don’t know is that BOTOX can be used as a preventative tool to minimize the formation of these three common signs of aging. So, the question is then, when should preventative BOTOX treatments begin?

Best Time to Start Preventative BOTOX

There is no exact age to start preventative BOTOX. Many patients start in their mid-30s to early 40s. The best time to begin is before the faint lines and creases on your face become noticeable. However, if you are a smoker, spend a lot of time in the sun, or squint or furrow your brow often, you may want to begin treatment sooner for the best results.

The Magic of Preventative BOTOX

Preventative BOTOX works by blocking the nerve signals to facial muscles that you would normally use while frowning, smiling, or squinting that lead to crow’s feet, laugh lines, and frown lines. With BOTOX, the result is that the formation of lines and creases are inhibited because those facial muscles are no longer contracting as they would do normally.

Don’t wait until your lines and creases become noticeable to begin BOTOX treatment. Book your consultation with North Scottsdale Laser & Skin Care Clinic to see if you are a candidate for preventative BOTOX. Call (480) 448-5878 today!
