When Should I Get BOTOX?
Blog Post October 3rd, 2018 - by Holly Shipley, PA-C
I get asked this question on a daily basis. In my opinion, there is no “rule” when it comes to the right age to start Botox because it varies per person. What I usually recommend is to start treatment when you develop static lines (wrinkles at rest) after making movements such as squinting or raising your brows.
Patients often ask me - Do you use a blunt cannula for the tear trough?

I answer that I have always used a needle instead, for multiple reasons. In my opinion, the needle technique is more precise, as I am always in the correct plane, and I know exactly where I’m placing the filler. With a cannula, the filler is often placed in an incorrect plane (too superficial and not deep enough). In my practice, I often see patients treated elsewhere who had filler placed incorrectly using a cannula; this can create puffy, lumpy filler below the tear trough.
