Fine lines in your forehead in your 20's
Being 20 year old is a great time to start thinking about preventing facial wrinkles. Botox in small amounts can help you prevent future wrinkles. Good skin care, retinols, and sunscreen will all help as well. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with anti-aging and cosmetic procedures for the best results.

Ask a doctor
I'm a 20 year old female and I've started to notice subtle wrinkles on my forehead. Am I too young to consider Botox?
Botox is a great alternative to help prevent future line/wrinkles. Although you are very young, I would suggest you seek a reputable board certified physician to give you an honest evaluation and provide you with a conservative natural look
Early jump on wrinkle prevention
Getting an early jump on
skin care and wrinkle prevention is always a great idea. Age 20 is about the
average age when those who are concerned about wrinkles can start to be treated
with Botox. In addition we would recommend daily sunscreen as well as nightly
tretinoin to treat and prevent further wrinkles.
Botox for Prevention
Cosmetic is injected into muscles to temporarily treat moderate to severe frown
lines between the brows and in the area around the side of the eyes improving
the look of moderate to severe crow’s feet lines in adults. Consult with a
Board Certified Dermatologist so that they may evaluate your concerns and see
if Botox would be appropriate for you. Often times these consultations are
complimentary and are the best way to get your questions answered.
20 and Subtle Wrinkles
Hi! You are not too young for Botox treatments. Starting
Botox in your twenties is a great preventative measure for combatting the rate
at which you’ll get fine lines and wrinkles.
Many of my 20 year old patients also enjoy using Botox to control their
It is early, but some use Botox for prevention
I usually see patients start to use Botox when fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyes, or along the crow's feet begin to bother them. Your lines are thin and subtle, but if they bother you, you can discuss your concerns with a plastic surgeon to see what suggestions they may have. This may include Botox, Chemical Peels, Skin Care or Lasers. Remember that avoiding smoking and UV exposure are your best defenses against the signs of aging.
