I am a 25-year-old woman who has had a somewhat stressful life. I am now developing frown lines. Am I too young to begin a BOTOX regimen?
Two things occur to me as you are telling me that you are 25 years of age and are developing frown lines due to stress in your life. The first is that Botox is an excellent way to help deter the onset of these frown lines or scowl lines in your forehead. At 25 years old I would suggest having the procedure performed about two to three times yearly. The second thing that has occurred to me is that if you are stressed out at 25, you really should evaluate what is causing so much stress in your life at this point, and what changes, if any can you make to your life to reduce the stress. I am a big proponent of looking good to feel good; however, stress to such a high level will not ever let you feel good no matter how good you look.
