At our Bella Tu MedSpa locations in Nyack and Goshen, NY, we specialize in anti-aging treatments for patients who live in the New City, NY, area. We offer the most popular cosmetic treatment, BOTOX®, to help patients of all ages achieve their ideal appearance, maintain youthful skin, and erase the signs of aging. This treatment does far more than just improve your appearance by smoothing wrinkles; it also boosts your confidence.
What’s the Best Age for Getting BOTOX®?
BOTOX® treatments are versatile and are not designed for a specific age range. If you are an adult with dynamic wrinkles, also known as expression lines, on the upper half of the face, or you want to use this injectable to treat medical conditions like hyperhidrosis or TMJ pain, you may be the right treatment candidate. So long as you are an adult, your numerical age isn’t a factor determining treatment eligibility because expression lines form differently.
Some patients notice expression lines in their 20s, and others in their 30s, 40s, and beyond. Different factors affect the formation of these lines, including lifestyle, sun exposure, environmental factors, collagen loss, genetics, and cellular changes. Regardless of your age, as long as you are an adult who understands the treatment process and is not allergic to the ingredients in the formula, this injectable may be right for you.
The Types of Treatments
Younger patients and those who have not begun to see the formation of deep-set expression lines often use BOTOX® as a preventative treatment. They receive injections to treat the mildest, etched-in lines to eliminate them and prevent them from worsening over time. When the muscles relax, the skin will no longer be forced into repetitive expressions, and as a result, the treatment will work as a preventative measure against wrinkles.
BOTOX® is also a prescriptive treatment option for patients with visible expression lines. We can use it to smooth the most common dynamic wrinkles, including forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. As a prescriptive treatment, it has preventative benefits and will keep those expression lines that are currently noticeable from worsening.
Special Events Treatments
Some patients begin a routine with this injectable leading up to a special event to achieve smoother, younger-looking skin. Many of those patients continue using the injectable long-term because they love their results. If you’re interested in preparing your skin for a special event, you can undergo treatment with this injectable to achieve your ideal results.

How Long Will My Results Last?
Results typically last three months but can last longer, closer to four to six months. Your body will begin metabolizing the product upon injection, so as long as it takes for that to happen is as long as your results will last. Follow-up treatment can help you maintain your desired appearance.
Will I Have To Plan Around Downtime?
There’s no downtime after a BOTOX® treatment, but you will have to follow some specific aftercare instructions. Before and after your treatment, you should temporally stop using blood-thinning supplements and medications, including anti-inflammatories, vitamin E, fish oil, ibuprofen, and others. You should also keep your head elevated after treatment, avoid touching the area, and avoid strenuous activity for 24 hours.
