The experts at BotoxJuvedermDoctor.com receive many questions regarding the effectiveness of Botox treatments. The website recently released an article answering one of the most common questions – how age influences short-term and long-term Botox results.
As noted in the publication the majority of people using Botox for cosmetic purposes are in their 40s and 50s. However, since Botox gained FDA approval in 2002 the base of users has widened, and now it isn’t uncommon to see people in their 20s as well as people in their late 60s and 70s receiving regular treatments.
BOTOX TREATMENTS FOR PEOPLE IN THEIR 20s
Many may wonder why people who are too young to have fine lines and wrinkles would want to invest in Botox treatments. The BotoxJuvedermDoctor.com publication explains that, “some medical professionals say that the real benefit of using Botox before wrinkles form is that it will prevent them from becoming permanent fixtures on your face.”
Research is coming out that suggests using Botox in areas like the forehead and around the eyes where muscle movement plays a role in wrinkle formation can reduce the severity of lines. While the effects of Botox aren’t as noticeable at the time of treatment, the long-term effects could be substantial.
BOTOX TREATMENTS FOR PEOPLE IN THEIR 60s and 70s
Questions about Botox use at older ages arise because the product isn’t FDA approved for people 65 and older. However, as pointed out in the BotoxJuvedermDoctor.com article this isn’t because of health concerns but because of findings from the clinical trials. Those over 65 did see real improvements in the softening of lines and wrinkles, but it wasn’t as effective compared to younger trial participants. Botox is available as an off-label treatment for older patients.
While there are no guidelines restricting cosmetic Botox use in older patients, there are stricter regulations when using it for medical purposes. General health and medication use can also be a factor in whether Botox can be used regardless of a patient’s age.
