Botox at the age of 17?

deedasmin3  |  visitor  |  Ontario
My 17-year-old little girl has pimples and wrinkles all over her face. She has been battling with them for a long time. She doesn't want to face her friends because of this and her schooling has become troublesome. We had tried some treatment methods, but it worked for just a couple of weeks. I read that botox treatment is the best treatment method for wrinkles and we decided to get her that treatment from Med-Aesthetics in Brampton. While browsing I had read mixed opinions about this treatment so I'm confused. Any thoughts?

There may be a case for such specialist treatment but suggest seeking advice from plastic surgeon or dermatologist first.

your little 17 years old girl has probably a dried irritative skin due to treatments of pimples, and this can look like wrinles but are not. Botox has no efficiency on acne as known today, and also will not reliev her irritative skin. I suggest that you go to a very good dermatologist in your area to find a cosmetic regimen apropriate but I strongly recommend not to do botox yet; she is too young. best regards.
