It’s no secret that Botox is the most popular injectable available on the cosmetic surgery market. And as a filler that is popular not only among men and women but also among individuals of all ages— ranging from their twenties into their sixties on average— it can be hard to know just when you should be getting Botox injections to help aid in the temporary disappearance of your wrinkles. Read on to learn more about three potential signs that it might be time for you to get Botox.
Try to Furrow Your Brow
One of the best ways to tell that you are in need of Botox is to try what is known as the “furrow your brow test.” Yes, this may sound like some sort of juvenile test used for kindergarteners, but this is actually a real thing. Simply look in the mirror and furrow your brow in order to create some lines and wrinkles around your forehead and eyes. Then relax your face. Do the lines and wrinkles disappear or are they still there? If they disappear, then you still have enough collagen in your skin and don’t need Botox. If, however, they are still there then this is an indication that it’s your turn to schedule an appointment with Dr. Tom Crais.
Think About Preventative Aging
Another thing to consider if you are still in your twenties and thirties is getting Botox as a preventative measure to treat future fine lines and wrinkles. As a popular treatment amongst women in their twenties, many women like to meet with Dr. Tom F. Crais to get Botox in order to prevent against the development of fine lines and wrinkles further down the line.
You’re Already There
If you are in your 50’s or 60’s and have never had any injectables or fillers done, then you might want to consider getting Botox. Although it would be miraculous if you never aged, if you are middle aged, you are already showing some signs of aging in your skin.
By temporarily paralyzing the muscles around your eyes and your forehead, Botox works to smooth out those nasty fine lines and wrinkles that are causing you to cringe every time you look in the mirror.
