Why Botox and When to Start?

Written by Katie Keil

As an injector, I often get asked “why and when should I start Botox?”. This question has always

been one of my favorite questions to answer. Why, you ask? Botox is one of the most

important key factors to keeping youthful looking skin!

For those of you who do not know what Botox is or what it does, let me explain. Botox is a type

of neuromodulator that is injected into the muscles in the face to help temporarily relax the

muscle(s) it is injected into. This relaxation of the muscles will help to prevent you from making

those facial expressions that actually cause those lines and wrinkles from forming on your face.

The results take 2 weeks to fully settle, and results typically last anywhere from 3 to 6 months

(varies person to person).

I oftentimes hear from people “you are too young to be getting Botox”. What people do not

realize is that Botox is a HUGE preventative. Many people think that once they start to see

those lines and wrinkles appearing on their face while they are resting and not making any

facial expressions that it is then that they should start to think about getting Botox. I’m here to

tell you that information is false! The key in keeping youthful looking skin is to start Botox

before those lines are there while resting so you can prevent them from forming. Now don’t get

me wrong, if you have lines that are there while resting, you can still receive Botox and get all

the benefits! In fact, this will prevent them from getting any worse! In the aesthetic world,

prevention is key. This treatment is the number 1 preventative measure to prevent signs of

aging on the face. Get the Botox treatment and thank me later, I promise you won’t regret it.
