How do I know if I need Botox?
Nobody needs Botox and nobody should feel pressured to get it. If you are the kind of person who frowns a lot or wrinkles your nose or consistently makes facial expressions that cause wrinkles, Botox can help eliminate those lines (or stop them before they form).
Most get Botox as a preventive measure. I scrunch up my forehead/brow a lot and started developing lines there when I was young. Getting Botox made it difficult to scrunch my forehead, which stopped the wrinkles from forming. It also trained me out of the scrunching habit–so even when the Botox wears off, I’m still less likely to frown. I think of it as insurance against future wrinkles.
