Conservative Treatment to Stave Off Wrinkles
BOTOX certainly does have preventive properties, and administering it in
conservative amounts to the dynamic wrinkles of your upper face can definitely
slow the development of these wrinkles as you age. It's important to see an
experienced board-certified dermatologist for the best results. BOTOX is a
powerful product, and it's important to use a light hand when targeting the
concerns of younger patients like yourself. As you said, your skin already
looks young and fresh, but I believe a conservative regimen could have the
preventive effects you're looking for. Best wishes!
Botox and Prevention
Botox in "baby" amounts will definitely prevent you from having wrinkles and preserve your natural look. Please consult an experienced board certified dermatologist with expertise with Botox for the best results. Best, Dr. Green
Low dose botox
Yes - it is a good treatment in your case - However a lower dose is recommended - perhaps 10 units for the glabella and 5-7 units for the forehead. This will give you a nice result if injected properly.
Strategic use of Botox can be a great preventative tool. Be sure to seek out an experienced, qualified injector who understands your desire for a natural look.
All the best
Am I a good Candidate for Botox if I am only 32 and don't have very visible wrinkles? I want results that show at rest.
HI, yes I believe that you would be a good candidate for one of the neuro-modulators (Botox, Xeomin or Dysport) to the Glabella and Forehead.
Botox for lines
You would be a great candidate for Botox. Botox is catered to you. A conservative approach can be taken for your first Botox treatment and your provider can increase the dosage if needed since you have concerns. Typically I recommend my patients not massage the area or lay flat for 4 hours post injection to prevent product from migrating into a muscle not intended (eyelid droop). Hope this helps you and thank you for your question.
Botox can be preventative to minimize the risk of developing deep etched lines on the forehead. I have seen this with "11" lines and the transverse forehead lines, as well as the crow's feet lines on the sides of the eyes. Good luck.
Regular, repeated Botox injections can prevent the development of deep wrinkles in the glabella and forehead. I recommend starting with a low dose done by an expert injector and you will likely be very happy with the results. If you don't like the results, your facial expression will return back over several months.
Considering Botox at age 32 and a little nervous
Thank you for your question. From looking at your pictures, you are a good candidate for Botox. When Botox is administered properly by an experienced injector, the risk of eyebrow and eyelid ptosis (droopy brow and lid) as well as the "Dr. Spock" look is minimal. I think that you would benefit from Botox in the glabellar complex as well as the frontalis muscle (forehead area) to prevent the formation of static lines or deeper wrinkles over time. In my practice, I would recommend starting with just the glabellar complex (area between the brows) if you were nervous and do the frontalis muscle (forehead) at a later visit. Good luck and I hope you are happy with your results.
I believe that you would be an excellent candidate for Botox. Injections on a person with your type of wrinkles (only at motion) are the perfect candidates for Botox as it helps diminish the wrinkles while in motion and prevents (delay) the static wrinkles. If you consult with an experience injector you should not have to worry about the over done look.
Hope this helps,
Dr. Gus Diaz
