BOTOX treatments are for men and women of any age who want to improve forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, and any other facial lines that age their face. BOTOX works to temporarily freeze muscle contractions in treated areas which leads to fewer facial lines and a more refreshed appearance. Men and women looking to improve their facial lines with BOTOX come to our Med Spa for fast and easy facial rejuvenation.

If you ever wondered, “At what age do you start BOTOX?” you should know that it’s better to start preventative skin care in your mid-20s or early 30s if possible. This strategy will keep facial lines from getting deeper and more visible with the passing of time.

Here is a Guide To Getting BOTOX at Different Ages

In Your 20s

You may feel like you are too young for BOTOX in your 20s and that is completely your choice! However, some men and women in their 20s notice prominent facial lines in their face and neck area due to genetics or environmental factors. If you are in your mid-20s with facial lines, it’s a good idea to try BOTOX as a preventative measure, along with proper skin care and sun protection.

You can read answers to some common questions about BOTOX in this related blog. If you are not quite ready for BOTOX, you can also try some of our facial treatments such as HydraFacial® or microneedling to refresh and resurface your skin.

In Your 30s

Your early 30s is a good time to start BOTOX as your lines and wrinkles tend to become permanently etched in your face by your late 30s. You may also notice more crow’s feet as the skin around the eyes tends to get more fragile as you age. You should discuss your goals with your provider and if you want a more natural, rested appearance after BOTOX.

A skilled and experienced injector can give you BOTOX results that are soft, natural, and fitting for someone in their 30s

In Your 40s

You will notice your facial lines looking more defined in your 40s due to the breakdown of collagen and elastin. BOTOX can work on softening fine lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and marionette lines. You should also look into other lifestyle factors that age your face in your 40s such as stress, alcohol, and not using sun protection.

If you have volume loss under your eyes and on your lips, you can opt for dermal fillers to restore volume along with your BOTOX treatment.

BOTOX is a go-to treatment for men and women of all ages and a variety of skin concerns. You can see some of our patient’s amazing BOTOX results in this before and after gallery.

I’ve been going to Revive for several years. I’ve always had a great experience with everyone from the front desk staff to the dermatologists to the estheticians. The VIP program is amazing! Highly recommended!

Thank you so much Alyssa! We appreciate the review!

Revive is the best dermatology clinic I have ever been to! After suffering from trial and error at the last clinic I went to, I was very hesitant to go to Revive. Right away, everyone was so caring and accommodating. I have never received such amazing service from any clinic I have been to, but Revive is leaps and bounds greater than your ordinary dermatology clinic. I received the hydra-facial from Maria, and I did not want to leave! The experience was amazing and the service was outstanding. The facial itself was incredibly relaxing and Maria walked me through the steps in the facial process since I had never received one before. Carissa at the front was so friendly and welcoming as well. I was seen right away and felt like everyone truly cared about my overall experience at the clinic. I would recommend Revive to anyone who is looking for dermatology services! I will be back!

I called several dermatology clinics and was unable to see anyone soon. Revive was able to do a Tele health visit the same day with me! Tawnya was kind and knowledgeable. I would recommend this clinic and return if needed!
