Are there age restrictions on Botox?


Botox is without a doubt the most popular thing in the plastic surgery field. Males and females, old and young, all flock to Larry Weinstein’s office to get Botox to help fill in wrinkles that once used to be non-existent. And although Botox is popular among all different age groups, it has many people asking “Are there any age restrictions on Botox?”

Why do people want Botox at a young age?

BotoxThere is a consensus among many young patients who receive Botox injections that getting Botox at a young age will help them to prevent against getting wrinkles later on in life. And if there is any sort of preventative measure that’s worth taking, it’s worth the try.

What does research say?

Collectively, research points to one thing: Botox hasn’t been around long enough for us to determine whether or not there are benefits to getting Botox at a young age or if it’s more beneficial to wait until you’re older. However, many people believe that because there aren’t any sort of adverse side effects or problems with getting Botox at a young age, that there really isn’t any harm in doing so. That being said, it really is up to you and Dr. Weinstein to sit down and discuss the best method to use going forward.

Is it dangerous?

Getting Botox in your early to late twenties is not dangerous— as long as it is administered by a professional in the right doses. If you are under the age of 18, you will have to have a parents consent and will need to have a consultation with Dr. Larry Weinstein to determine whether or not he feels that you are a suitable candidate to get Botox at such a young age. It should be noted, however, as indicated above, because Botox hasn’t been on the market for very long, there isn’t any strong evidence that points to the fact that Botox is a preventative treatment.

As you can see, there are no real age restrictions on getting Botox. If you or a loved one is interested in getting Botox or if you would like to learn more, set up a consultation with Dr. Larry Weinstein today!
