Botox At Age 50

As long as you have no medical contraindications you can get Botox, most of my patients are in their 30″s to 60’s. Please consult with a reputable Botox provider for an evaluation of your needs as you may also consider laser resurfacing and facial fillers, if so recommended. (E. John Serrao, MD, Orlando OB-GYN)

We perform these procedures on patients in their 40s,50s,60s with great results, unless there’re contra-indications. (Thomas Trevisani, Sr., MD, Orlando Plastic Surgeon)

I have injected both men and women ranging in age from 19 to 85. Unless you have some medical problem that would prevent it go ahead and get the injections. (Melvin Elson, MD, Nashville Dermatologist)

Botox age guidelines

Age itself is only a number. If your general health is good, and you have a consult with an experienced BOTOX provider who recommends it then consider proceeding.

Botox After Age 70

Botox works best in the upper face to treat frown (pathenthesis) lines, crows feet and worry lines on the forehead.

It has many other uses as well, such as the platysma muscle in the neck, ‘bar-coding’ of the lips, over prominent chin muscles, lifting up the tip of the nose etc.

Make sure that your ‘injector’ is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery so that he or she can evaluate the aging process and give you surgical and non-surgical options that would be most effective and give the best return on your investment. (Laurence Kirwan, MD, FRCS, FACS, Norwalk Plastic Surgeon)

Women and men in their 50s get Botox all the time. Unless you have a contraindication to being injected, it shouldn’t be an issue.

Botox Can Be Used In Specific Areas Depending What You Would Like To Treat

Be sure to find a well trained and experienced physician injector. (Alix J. Charles, MD, Hinsdale Dermatologic Surgeon)

Absolutely – someone in their 50’s is likely an ideal candidate.

When you consult with a Physician, your concerns will be addressed as well as your goals and it will be determined if you are a candidate.

Your age will not play a role in that process. (Robert S. Bader, MD, FAAD, Boca Raton Dermatologic Surgeon)

I routinely administer Botox to 50 year old patients, and have had it myself. Unless you have some form of neurological disorder that prohibits Botox administration, it is very safe, very effective, and produces a high degree of patient satisfaction.

Many patients dislike the fact that Botox contains the terminology that labels it a “toxin”, which is an accurate description. However, every medication that we use for therapeutic purposes such as Tylenol (Acetaminophen) has a therapeutic and a toxic dose.

Botox Is An Excellent Option For Decreasing Wrinkles

Botox is used in very small therapeutic doses and has a great track record for safety over decades. (Stephen Prendiville, MD, Fort Myers Facial Plastic Surgeon)

BOTOX and age

I generally do not base guidelines for BOTOX injections on age, but rather on your need for Botox. With that said, most women in their mid to late 50s are good candidates for Botox treatments.

Botox is most commonly used to smooth wrinkles on the forehead, in between your eyebrows and your crow’s feet. If you have deep wrinkles or volume loss around your mid and lower face, then injectable fillers may be a better option for you.

I recommend an in person consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon who has a lot of experience with non-surgical injectable procedures to make sure you get the best results possible. (Jimmy S. Firouz, MD, FACS, Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon)

You are certainly in the age range to receive botox. Conditions that would prevent you from receiving botulinum toxin include neuromuscular diseases such as myasthenia gravis or Lou Gehrig’s disease. (Dustin Wilkes, DO, Weatherford Dermatologist)

You are at the right age for Botox when you decide you are ready. If you have lines that bother your normally Botox is a great treatment. We have patients that start treatment as early as twenty something on up into the sixty something’s.

Certainly You Can Have Botox Injections At Age 50

Keep in mind that if you have deep lines it make take several treatments before you get your desired result. The idea is that you are treating the muscle that is causing the lines. Botox is amazing and I think you will be very happy. (Michael J. Brown, MD, Ashburn Plastic Surgeon)

There is no reason someone couldn’t get Botox at your age unless there was a health condition precluding it. (Mathew A. Plant, MD, FRCSC, Toronto Plastic Surgeon)

Age 50 would be a great time to get Botox for the average patient, but I would recommend that you have a consultation with an experienced injector prior to your treatment. (Richard Ort, MD, Lone Tree Dermatologic Surgeon)

There should not be a problem having Botox injections assuming that you do not have any serious health issues.

The treatment is usually performed easily and without significant discomfort. This of course would be determined by your consulting Plastic Surgeon. (John J. Obi, MD, Jacksonville Plastic Surgeon)

Botox is used in a wide variety of specialties and in patients of almost all age ranges. Most patients who use Botox to treat their wrinkles start doing so in their 50s. Botox can soften lines in the forehead and around the eyes, raise the eyebrows, and correct a number of asymmetries.

Consult a board-certified plastic surgeon for information on how Botox can work for you. (F. True Lansden, MD, Key West Plastic Surgeon)
