At What Age Can One Benefit from Botox?

Botox can be administered to patients as young as their 20s for symptoms such as headaches and migraines. When Botox is used as a cosmetic enhancement to prevent lines and wrinkles from forming, patients can opt for Botox at any time fine lines become visible. Botox works by releasing a toxin to prevent muscle movement. Specifically, the toxin blocks the impulses from the nerves to the facial muscles.

Botox can be applied in several areas of the face such as between the eyebrows, large wrinkles on the forehead, small wrinkles to the side of your eyes referred to as “crow’s feet.” For natural looking results, contact Dr. Firouz for optimal Botox treatments. He is a master at his craft and highly experienced board-certified plastic surgeon. While almost anyone can administer Botox injections in a med spa or some salons, it doesn’t mean you should let just anyone do so. To avoid botched Botox, do not have an unskilled injector inject you. There are some mistakes such a person could make which include injecting the Botox too deeply or too superficially in the skin. They could also inject it improperly. This is why it is critical to have a specialist like board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Firouz perform Botox and facial fillers to the face. He understands facial anatomy and can administer these injections properly, to achieve the desired cosmetic results.

There is minimal recovery and no downtime after Botox. The only cautionary advice is to not do physical exercise for 24 hours. Contact our practice today to schedule your consultation.
