Who uses Botox for face wrinkles?
What’s the age to start using Botox injections? There is no simple answer to this, but in general, patients start to get Botox most commonly in their mid to late 30s. Signs of aging begin to show when collagen production slows down, reducing elasticity in the facial muscles, making them in a more relaxed state than in younger skin.
