Why a Derm Recommends Botox at 30

Botox injections are among the top treatments requested at the office of Julia Tzu, M.D., of Wall Street Dermatology in New York—and she advocates the treatment as a certain type of wrinkle preventative measure for clients who have reached the age of 30.

In this exclusive interview with Skin Inc., Tzu discusses how Botox* can be used as an early wrinkle treatment and when to begin the Botox conversation with clients. 

Skin Inc.:
At what age do you think you should start speaking with clients about Botox?

Dr. Tzu: Patients in their late 20s often initiate the conversation with me regarding Botox. I personally do not initiate the Botox conversation until patients reach their third decade.

S: Why do you advocate to start using Botox at 30?

T: The earlier you start Botox, the less your wrinkles become deeply ingrained in the skin later on in life. Yes, Botox can be used to prevent specific types of wrinkles (dynamic wrinkles from muscle overactivity) from forming. Starting Botox at an early age prevents dynamic wrinkles from becoming static wrinkles, which usually forms with time as a result of chronic activity of the muscles underneath the skin.

I am 57 and I have minimal wrinkles on my forehead. I started tx at 32 when the lines were beginning to show! I missed a few years to stay real! I believe in Botox.
