Botox at Age of 70

 
Hi and thank you for your question! In short, whenever lines are wrinkles are caused (or worsened) by contraction of muscles underneath them, Botox (and other medications in this family, Xeomin, Dysport and Jeuveau) will help to smooth them out. As we age more, we also more collagen (and volume) so other treatments to stimulate collage (e.g. Ultherapy) and add volume to skin (e.g. fillers) also work to get even better results and supplement the Botox treatments. I hope it helps and good luck!
