What are the benefits of Botox?

For some reason Botox is broadcasted with a negative stigma when talked about by the common person or even the media.  A friend of mine had it done and has nothing but good things to say about it.  Can a doctor please explain the benefits of Botox and also if it is beneficial to start getting it done in your mid 30's versus waiting until your 40's?  Thank You.

Botox is a great product for reducing lines caused by muscle movement. The time to start is when you begin to see lines that bother you. It is best to treat early so that the lines do not become static - meaning that there are lines apparent when you are at rest.

First of all, almost every person you see in the media uses Botox. Secondly, it is an excellent medication to help reduce some of the unwanted aging lines that occur with time. Early intervention with botox is an excellent idea to prevent some of the deeper lines that are formed from repeated facial muscle contraction. You'll love it- good luck! 

Toxin injections (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin) are the #1 non surgical treatments in the WORLD! So your statements on negative stigmata are faulty!!!!. Best to seek in person evaluations and try a session. The good news it wears ff after 3 to 6 months if yu do not like the effect. Regards Dr B, Miami
