Many young people are now beginning to panic at the first sign of wrinkles, so it’s not surprising that some of them are choosing to get botox even while still in their 20’s. But some of them are now asking, – “Is there is a limit to how many botox treatments I can get in my 20’s, and is there a right time to start getting shots?”
People age differently, and some do get frown lines and crow’s feetin their 20’s, but physicians don’t all agree on whether or not it’s a good idea to start botox that early. It’s also not clear if the youth enhancing benefits of botox are apparent at that age. Nevertheless, young people are using it as a preventative measure against future wrinkles.
How many botox treatments should I get in my 20’s?
Botox is effective against dynamic wrinkles that form due to continuous muscle movement. When botox is injected into the muscles it blocks the normal nerve impulses, so they fail to contract. The effects last about 4-6 months;therefore, patients typically get injections about 3 times yearly.
While there is no limit to the number of botox treatments patients can get in their 20’s, 3 treatments per year is usually the norm. Doctors generally advise to wait until the effects of the last botox injection wears off, before going in for another treatment.
