How young is too young for Botox?

March 14, 2015

People requesting plastic surgery and non-surgical rejuvenation treatments seem to be getting younger every year that goes by.  but Botox at 20?

Dr Allen Rezai was recently interviewed by Emirates 24/7. And in this rather disturbing article, Dr Rezai explains the very real dangers of certain rejuvenation procedures for the very young…

“We welcome everybody that comes to us, ” said Dr Rezai, “but not everyone has the right indications for cosmetic procedures and if a 20 year-old comes to our practice asking for Botox to treat wrinkles, then he/she will be rejected unless the person is indicated for this treatment by for example having  a visible deep fold in her forehead, that is caused by overactive muscles and which can be improved by Botox injections.”

He added: “I am strongly against young 20-25 even 30 year old patients having Botox injections for rejuvenation purposes,  and whenever I get such patients, I explain for them why they shouldn’t start using botox at this age and what will the consequences be, if they did.

“What botox does is, temporarily paralyse the muscle causing the wrinkle  to relax and smooth out. I even advise my older patients to Not have Botox more than twice a year, as they need to allow their muscles to become fully active before injection them again. ”
