Do you have wrinkles or fine lines that affect your self-confidence? Aging signs can damage your self-image, and we can reduce or even prevent these signs of aging with Botox. Join the millions of Americans who have experienced the benefits of Botox at every age. Contact Urban Allure in San Francisco, CA with any questions you might have about Botox.
What Is Botox?
Botox is an FDA approved injectable solution for the reduction and prevention of signs of aging. The injectable solution uses Botulinum toxin type A to restrict the movement of those muscles that make lines, folds, and wrinkles appear on your face as you age. Botox is one of the most common cosmetic treatments, used by millions of Americans since 2002. The treatment is safe, quick, and easy while providing long-lasting results.
What Is the Perfect Age to Experience the Benefits of Botox?
You may think you are too young or too old to experience the benefits of Botox, but many patients are surprised by the uses of Botox for severe wrinkles and the prevention of wrinkles. Patients as young as 18 years of age can safely receive Botox treatment, and patients of advanced ages enjoy Botox to reduce the signs of aging.
Botox patients continue to improve their appearance later in life, with many patients receiving Botox treatments since it has been available to the public. While other products cannot be used to treat greater skin laxity after the age of 65, Botox can provide patients with a young and rejuvenated appearance as they age.
Botox for Proactive Aging Sign Reduction
Typically, patients will gain interest in Botox for age reduction around the age of 30, but patients who are still in their 20s can use Botox to proactively eliminate signs of aging. Patients commonly use Botox at a young age to address forehead creases and nasolabial folds, and Botox can be injected into common problem areas to reduce muscle movement before wrinkles and lines ever appear.

Aging Signs Botox Can Treat
Botox prevents signs of aging by restricting muscle movements that cause lines and wrinkles. This injectable treatment can be administered in variable unit numbers to treat a variety of lines and wrinkles on the face both to reduce or prevent these wrinkles altogether. Most wrinkles and lines can be treated with an average of 20 units of Botox solution, but wrinkles and lines can take between two and 30 units, depending on the patient.
The areas that can be treated with this injectable are:
- Forehead lines
- Frown lines between the brow
- Crow’s feet
- Nasolabial folds
- Smoker’s lines
- Dimples and indentations
- Lines on the corner of the mouth
A single Botox session takes between 15 and 30 minutes to complete, depending on the number of units and treatment locations. Many patients have their treatment during a lunch break or any free time during the day and return to work or normal routine activities. The results of Botox are generally seen after two or three days and fully blossom by the second or third week. After a single Botox session, the results will last for up to four months before you need to return for a retouch. You can continue to retouch for youthful skin as you age.
Am I an Ideal Candidate?
There is no prescribed age to begin Botox treatments, but patients should be at least 18 years of age to undergo treatment. Both men and women enjoy Botox treatment to reduce and prevent aging signs. Botox works well for all skin types and skin tones, unlike some laser treatments. Patients can enjoy fast treatments and will not be required to experience downtime or recover in a hospital.
Post-treatment care is simple: patients are encouraged to avoid strenuous activity for 24 hours, avoid massaging the treatment area, and avoid lying down for four hours. The treatment is not recommended for pregnant or nursing women and certain medications may cause an interaction with Botox, such as antibiotics. We will discuss this when you come in for your initial consultation.
The treatment is excellent for anyone who wishes to retain or improve their youthful complexion. Finding out if Botox is the ideal treatment for you starts with a consultation where we will determine if Botox is the best solution for your skin.
