How young is too young... for Botox?

Can you start Botox too early? HELL NO! Well, within reason of course!

When our founder Brandi Gregge was in her 20’s many were unsure when it was “socially acceptable” and safe to start Botox. Well, the “socially acceptable” piece REALLY didn’t matter because DAMN IT who cares. But the safety and when does it make financial sense aspects are super important.

Where did these crow’s feet even come from?

We use Botox which is a neuromodulator (just like Xeomin and Dysport), to prevent the dreaded wrinkles from forming. These lines are from repetitive folding of skin from regular facial expressions such as smiling, frowning, and giving your best RBF. Now, when you’re in your earlier 20’s you don’t need to worry about this…But your late 20s, 30s, and 40s wrinkle prevention are ESSENTIAL! Unfortunately, many of us wait to get Botox until our 40s, 50s, and 60s, to fix these wrinkles once they are developed.

How does Botox work?

Well, after Botox is injected, it inhibits the muscle from contracting which means wrinkles are unable to form. When you start Botox before the formation and etching of facial lines, you can prevent them from occurring in the first place! And no, this does not mean you will have a FROZEN face! When Botox is done correctly, you will have a natural result with facial expressions in all the right places! 

FYI - When you are getting Botox for wrinkle prevention, the dosage is much less. Your face in 10 years will thank you and your #botoxbff for PREVENTATIVE use.
