As you head deeper into your 30s, you’ll likely start to notice your first lines and wrinkles. Most women won’t develop permanent deep lines and wrinkles until their late 30s, so your early-to-mid-30s is an excellent time to consider Botox.
At this age, wrinkles will start to be visible even when you do not make a facial expression, especially around your brows and eyes. Sunbathing, smoking, and drinking alcohol can contribute to premature wrinkles, though one of the top causes of wrinkles on people in their 30s is stress. Stress slows down the skin’s natural barrier and its ability to heal itself. Our skin barrier helps hold moisture in the skin, and breaking down the moisture can cause the skin to age prematurely.
How can Botox help?
Botox limits muscle movement in the areas of the face that move the most, like the forehead, between the eyebrows, and eyes. Since the muscles aren’t contracting with Botox, your skin doesn’t wrinkle like it would if the muscles could fully move.
