Maybe we should start this by noting that mom is always right. Your skin’s best preparation begins BEFORE we see damage. Even if you are in your 30s, it is not too early to start learning about the benefits of Botox.  A good rule of thumb to follow is when you start to see lines sticking around, it might be time to visit Melissa Rhodes NP-C at Ona Skincare to embark on your skin’s preservation.

Botox  is a bit of a magical potion and works when your muscles become more relaxed, which discourages wrinkle formation (and when used preventatively, even deep wrinkle development!). What is the old saying? An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure? When speaking of Botox, no other statement better describes the results that await you with regular administration.

Although we don’t typically recommend treatment before the age of 30, some women and men are at the mercy of early-aging genes and want to get a jump on controlling their future appearance. So, an exception might be made for you if you are noting wrinkles at rest or are very animated.

The age at which you begin Botox also varies according to your genetics. That said, it is difficult to cast a general age range over any population. The determining factor in beginning your use of Botox depends on your skin’s condition and your product use, as well as sun exposure. Try this small test; if you see crow’s feet tugging at the corners of your eyes and you’re not smiling, it might be time to come in for your first session.
