Can Botox delay the aging process? 

Most people get Botox because they want to get that subtly younger look and say goodbye to their facial lines and wrinkles, but can Botox delay the aging process? The answer is YES! 

When you stop Botox injections you will still develop wrinkles, however they will not automatically appear overnight, and you will still look younger than you would have if you never got the injections in the first place. 

There was a study that was conducted in twins that showed that Botox injections did in fact slow down the aging process by producing fewer wrinkles formed over time (Freeman, 2022). Because Botox reduces the movement in the muscles which it is injected into, it delays the aging process even after injections are stopped.

In other words, once you stop receiving Botox injections, your face will not automatically look years older overnight. It is going to take time for those wrinkles to form, and they will be forming at a much slower rate, thus allowing you to age slower than you would have if you were to have never received Botox at all (Montell, 2021). 

There is no doubt that the growing use of social media plays a role in the importance placed on appearances today. Recently Vogue magazine published an article that looked at this very topic and included a study conducted by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons which showed that in the last 12 years the number of people receiving Botox injections between the ages of 20-29 has increased by 28%. It is at this age that people start to notice their crow’s feet and forehead lines, and when used conservatively at this age, is beneficial and even allows for the use of less Botox in the future, as you are preventing the deeper wrinkles from ever forming (Atkins & Valenti, 2021). 

What is the current Botox Research? 

While more research still needs to be gathered, Dr. James Bonaparte and Dr. David Ellis have been conducting a study that looks at the effects of Botox not only on the muscles of the face, but the skin. As we age our skin loses elasticity and recoil. These two doctors/researchers are looking at the fact that Botox aids in reducing the elasticity of your skin as well (Scott, 2018).
