Q: Should I get Botox in my 20s? 

A: Most patients typically start using Botox at age 30, some even in their mid-20s. It’s possible to benefit from preventative Botox treatments starting as early as 25, but before that, the odds are low that you could have built up enough lines to worry about.” 

Q: Is Botox considered preventative? 

A: It’s also worth noting that no studies have come out to definitely say that preventative botox can actually prevent wrinkles from forming, though many medical professionals enthusiastically stand by the claim. … For some, wrinkle prevention is merely an added bonus of getting botox in your 20s 

 Q: Does Botox really work? 

A: The injected muscle can no longer contract, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften, and also helps prevent new ones from forming. 

Q: Is Botox worth the money? 

A: A typical Botox injection charged ‘per area of Botox‘ will cost you anywhere from $300 to $700. … Remember, you get what you pay for with Botox.  A Botox treatment will only be worth it if you have the money to pay for the recommended therapeutic dose for the area being treated.  Botox injection results typically last 3-4 months.

Q: Do Botox injections hurt? 

A: Any injection can hurt, but the needles used for Botox injections are very small, so pain is usually minimal. The area can be numbed with a topical anesthetic cream or cold pack 10-20 minutes before the injections are given, so you may not feel much pain, if any. 

Q: Does Botox get rid of fine lines? 

A: These anti-wrinkle treatments involve a licensed professional injecting Botox into facial muscles. Botox treatments can help reduce some kinds of wrinkles, such as crow’s feet at the corners of your eyes and the frown lines between your eyebrows. However, lines around your mouth generally aren’t treated with Botox. 

 Q: How long does Botox take to work? 

A: The effects are may be first noticed in 72 hours but it may take up to 14 days to maximize the effect. You may be asked to return after the first treatment so that your provider can assess your response. The first set of Botox injections may only give a partial response and you’ll want to be certain that you achieve desired results.
