Am I Too Young For Botox?

Botox is a leading cosmetic treatment in the world. The procedure is best known for dealing with facial wrinkles and lines, and it can also be used to prevent them from appearing. You may be wondering if you are too young for the procedure. At Liondale Medical, Dr. Bissoon and his team use the method to address your cosmetic goals and concerns.

When is the Right Age to Start Botox Injections?

When you make expressions on your face, it is normal for creases and lines to form. During your youth, the lines fade away when your face rests. However, these marks may become part of your facial appearance as you get older. Your face may also start to show signs of aging due to factors such as genetics, cellular changes, or sun damage. These changes can be addressed by Botox to help you look younger.

However, you do not have to wait until your face is full of wrinkles and creases to start receiving Botox injections. Preventative Botox has become common among the youth. The procedure is FDA-approved and you can be a candidate if 18 years and above. Dr. Bissoon will help you decide the right time to start Botox treatments.

Understanding Preventative Botox

There is a slight difference between Preventative Botox and Botox Cosmetic. Preventative Botox involves the administration of injections on the skin before the formation of wrinkles and facial lines. We now take you through the procedure.

Your facial skin gets wrinkles and creases when you raise your eyebrows, squint, and make other facial expressions. As time goes by, the creases start to show signs of aging, such as crow’s feet and frown lines. Botox helps relax and calm facial muscles to prevent hyperactivity during conversations and daily life activities. Dr. Bissoon will help delay the formation of wrinkles and lines on your face by giving you an early shot of Botox injection in your expressive areas.

Botox will also provide a solution for you if you have oily skin. The procedure helps decrease the production of sebum and the size of pores on your skin to give you confidence in the glow of your skin.

Why Choose an Experienced Injector  

Choosing an experienced Botox provider will help you minimize the risk of side effects while enhancing the procedure’s cosmetic outcomes. Dr. Bissoon has incredible experience and is familiar with administering Botox among patients of different ages.

Dr. Bissoon understands the vantage points on where to place the product and the right quantities to use. Too much use of Botox treatment within a short period can weaken your facial muscles and make you look older than you are. The adverse effects of overuse can affect patients of any age. Your doctor will often take a conservative approach so that your results look natural.
