Rejuvé Botox Treatment in the San Jose Bay Area: Is There an Upper Age Limit?


Posted by July 3rd, 2019 in News

When it comes to cosmetic treatments, whether surgical or non-invasive, the question that always comes up regarding age is if one is too young for it. In general, patients need to be at least 18 years old. If younger, they need parental consent. Botox treatment in San Jose Bay Area, for instance, is only administered on patients who are 18 years old and above. But the ‘above’ term enters a gray area when the patient considering Botox treatments in San Jose Bay Area or elsewhere is 65, 70, even 75 years old. Often, they wonder to themselves, “Am I too old for Botox?”

If you’re a sexagenarian or septuagenarian who’s been thinking about getting a Botox treatment in San Jose, we recommend that you first consult Dr. John Tang who has successfully administered Botox injections on retirement-age (and older) patients for over 20 years. He is a board certified, Stanford-trained physician who will evaluate your skin issues and determine if you are a good candidate for Botox treatments in San Jose or if other non-invasive wrinkle reduction procedures are better suited for you.

Am I too old for Botox?

The short answer is “No;” because there really is no upper age limit when it comes to this type of non-invasive wrinkle reduction treatment. What will affect your eligibility for the treatment is the extent of your skin laxity or how much of the skin’s natural elasticity, the amount of facial fat and bone loss, and muscle tone you have already lost. John Tang M.D. will check if your skin laxity and muscle tone have reached a point where Botox treatment in San Jose or other neuromodulator treatments such as Dysport, Xeomin, or Jeuveau will no longer work for you.

As you can see, age has nothing to do with one’s eligibility for the treatment and everything to do with skin elasticity.

A few reminders:

Before you schedule a consultation at a licensed cosmetic clinic for Botox treatments in the San Jose Bay Area, you should first consult your doctor and get clearance or approval from them. This is more so important if you are under regular medication like maintenance medicines for a medical condition.

It would be best too if you could go to your appointments with a loved one, both for consultation and the actual procedure, so you’ll have someone to support you, ask questions for and with you, and basically share the experience with.

If you’re ready to get started, please feel free to call Rejuvé at (408) 740-5320 to schedule an initial consultation and evaluation with Dr. John Tang.
