Do Younger Men and Women use Botox?

One of the most popular methods for making you look your best is Botox. It is a mixture of several chemicals, one of which is bacteria poison that prevents your nerve cells from communicating with the muscles, thus stopping the muscles from generating wrinkles. Botox, of course, is embraced by elderly people who want younger looking faces. As all of these make sense, to some extent at least, for changing how your face looks, it is very different when it comes to Botox.
It’s most popular use is for wrinkles. Are you too young for such a treatment? Statistically more than five million people in the USA use Botox. 

As it is about a smoother face you would think that not a significant percentage is below a certain age, but the truth is that more than one-third is actually below thirty. The reason for that can be partially explained with the quality people prescribe to Botox. It is believed that it is very effective for the wrinkles that are just forming, which means that if you start doing it early you will have fewer wrinkles when you are older. 

Many younger women take it not because they think they have problems with how they look, but because they consider it an investment for looking good when they become older. 

Be that as it may, there is also a larger majority that thinks they are having a wrinkle problem. Somewhere around the late twenties the first wrinkles start to appear which can be a very dramatizing experience for some, especially if they are in a business where looks are important. On the other side are the ones who start finding their first wrinkles in the mid twenties.

The bottom line is that there is not a certain age that makes you too young for Botox. Some folks have wrinkles extremely early and others have them late. It’s your decision if you want to come to our Rockford office for Botox. We have years of experience. Due to medical precautions, it is not recommended to take it before you are at least twenty two. We see a lot of younger patients as well as older patients for Botox treatments in our Rockford office.
