Botox® is an injectable skin treatment that blocks nerves in the facial muscles. Not only does this lessen the appearance of wrinkles, but it may also prevent skin issues for younger individuals. The treatment is approved for those aged 18 and up, but there’s usually no need for teens to get it. Here are some factors to consider when deciding when to start injections. 

Benefits of Botox in Your 20s

Men and women in their 20s don’t usually have deep wrinkles, but the skin may just be starting to form lines around the mouth, eyes, and forehead. These develop as the muscles in the face contract while a person smiles or frowns. Since Botox is injected into specific facial muscles to prevent them from fully moving, it can stop some lines and wrinkles from forming altogether. 


Botox is recommended for those who are just starting to notice fine lines. Wrinkles appear when people of any age smile and frown, but they eventually stay even after the face is relaxed. Once an individual reaches this point, the injections may be beneficial. People may also benefit from early treatments if they spend a lot of time in the sun or tanning beds or have genetics that make their skin age faster. 

Benefits of Botox in Your 30s & Beyond

When most people reach their mid-30s to 40s, they have some established lines on the face. Botox prevents extra muscle contractions, reducing the appearance of creases. The injections can also prevent future lines and wrinkles from forming. 

The treatment leads to a more youthful look and smoother skin. Specifically, Botox can reduce the visibility of forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, smile lines, lipstick lines, and chin dimpling. In addition to getting injections, consider reducing the amount of time spent in the sun or tanning beds to help with anti-aging.
