What Is the Most Popular Age for BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections?
3 Minute Read:
If you have ever wondered if you are the right age to have BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, you’ve come to the right place. This treatment knows very few age limitations, but it is commonly more prevalent among women in their 30s, 40s, and 50s. To help you understand the ideal BOTOX® Cosmetic candidate, let’s examine the different age groups that benefit from injections.
BOTOX® Cosmetic by Age Group
According to statistics released in 2018, teenagers as young as 13 years old seek treatment options (however, as you could guess, these patients aren’t looking at BOTOX® to reverse the signs of aging). Older women in their 40s, 50s, 60s, and beyond tend to prefer injections. After all, BOTOX® Cosmetic is an effective anti-aging solution because it reduces the signs of wrinkles caused by repeated muscle movements, such as blinking, squinting, smiling, and frowning.
Patient age groups that seek and benefit from cosmetic injections include:
- 13 to 19-year-old patients had 22,000 procedures done.
- 20 to 29-year-old patients had 109,000 procedures done.
- 30 to 39-year-old patients had 1.3 million procedures done.
- 40 to 54-year-old patients had 4.2 million procedures done.
- 55-year-old and older patients had 1.7 million procedures done.
Anyone from teenagers to seniors can benefit from the non-surgical benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic.
What Are the Cosmetic and Non-Cosmetic Benefits of BOTOX®?
BOTOX® Cosmetic can radically transform how a person looks by temporarily removing signs of aging, such as wrinkles, frown lines, crow’s feet, and furrowed brows. This neuromodulator works by blocking the chemical signals that cause the muscles in high-movement areas (such as around the eyes) from contracting to form wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic does not restore volume or provide permanent results; however, it is unmatched in its ability to relieve expression-causing wrinkles and slow down the aging changes in the upper third of the face.
These days, most women and men who consider BOTOX® Cosmetic do so for aesthetic purposes. However, cosmetics were not the primary goal of BOTOX® when it was first developed. Instead, the wrinkle-fighting benefits of the treatment were largely discovered by accident. BOTOX® was initially used to treat a series of health concerns, including chronic migraines, muscular spasms (including eye spasms), and overactive sweat glands.
At What Age Should I Consider BOTOX® Cosmetic?
As you can see, there are no age requirements for the injectable treatment. Instead, candidacy depends solely on what you are trying to achieve with the injections, not the age shown on your driver’s license.
If you are displeased with the aged or tired appearance given off by your expression-causing wrinkles, BOTOX® Cosmetic may be appropriate for you. This non-surgical treatment is performed in our office in a matter of minutes, and results can usually be seen within a week of the injections.
Most people experience BOTOX® Cosmetic results for three to six months.
