BOTOX INJECTIONS- HOW SOON IS TOO SOON?
Wrinkles Reveal Your Life -they are your badge of honour of the passage of time. Laugh lines give you character. But if you’re bothered by them, it’s nice to know you’ve got options. Anti wrinkle injections are one. When injected correctly, the results look naturally smooth and fresh. But, it is very important to have real expectations about these type of injections. “Botox will not get rid of all the wrinkles on your face— it will however soften and erase wrinkles which are made from your facial expressions”
Dr. Mark Hamilton advises his patients to start treatments ONLY when their wrinkles begin to hang around and are very visible when their faces are at rest. Using a good eye and face serum will help prevent wrinkles forming. It is NORMAL and NATURALLY BEAUTIFUL to have fine lines when you smile or frown. These lines usually vanish when your face is relaxed. When these wrinkles are still visible while your face is at rest…that’s the time to maybe THINK about having Anti- Wrinkle injections as a preventative treatment.
Some patients especially those with very fair and fine skin types, often want to start treatments in their mid- late twenties. Patients with darker skin tones usually don’t need treatments until their mid to late 30’s. It is most unusual for someone to ask for Botox under the age of 25. Most aesthetics doctors are reluctant to start a patient on this type of cosmetic procedure at such a young age and will always ensure that they really understand the implications involved.
“According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, women in their 20s make up 30 % of Botox users. They start as a preventive measure which some doctors recommend stating that the earlier you start Botox, the better since it is best used as a preventative measure to avoid getting fine lines and wrinkles. It works by relaxing the muscle; once relaxed, it relaxes the overlying skin, so you don’t get wrinkles.”
Late 20s- You want to slow down wrinkles occurring in your early 30s. “Prevention is always better than cure” Following a good skin care routine, along with a healthy lifestyle and diet, in addition to using strong sun protection will help slow down the aging process. Taking action with anti-aging injectables will prevent lines, wrinkles and loose skin from forming too soon and will help treatment results to last longer. It’s possible to benefit from ‘Baby Botox’ treatments as early as 28-30. Before that age it is unlikely you will have developed enough lines that need treating.
30s- Looking in the mirror – You start to notice a few more wrinkles—especially crow’s feet and brow lines—you want to stop them from becoming deeper. Here is a good Self- Test to check if you might need to start treatments- If you find yourself constantly smoothing out makeup that collects along a crease or line, you’re a suitable candidate for anti- wrinkle injections. Until a few years ago, most patients in our clinics typically started using Botox injections at age 40. That trend is changing. Now we see increasing numbers of patients in their early to mid- thirties starting their injections as a preventative measure rather than a cure for their wrinkles
40s- You notice deeper lines around your eyes, particularly crow’s feet, forehead and frown lines. Anti-Wrinkle injections will help improve these lines. A lot patients at this age ask Dr. Hamilton for help with tightening of their lower face and jawline One of his popular treatments for sagging jawline and neck lines is the ‘Nefertiti lift‘. This technique relaxes the muscles of the lower face which in turn provides a lift to the jawline and mouth. You may also experience some loss of fullness in your face. Dermal Filler injections will fill in the lines and add volume with immediate effect.
50s- Lines between your eyes and around your mouth become more pronounced as changes due to the menopause make your skin drier and more prone to wrinkles. Using a combination of Anti- Wrinkle injections and Dermal Fillers at this stage will help to give you a rejuvenated look. This is also a good time to have Skin Booster injections. Profhilo is perfect for skin laxity on the Face & Neck and is ideal if you feel slightly nervous about having dermal fillers.
60s – You want to look fresher and less tired rather than wanting to appear 20 years younger. Using a combination of Anti-Wrinkle Injections and Profhilo will boost your skin and help you look great for your age. Profhilo boosts, refreshes and re-models your skin. It gives a totally natural fresh softness to your skin and adds volume without looking like you have had work done.
