Hi doctor,

I am a 26 year old male with quite rough skin on my face, which I am not happy with. I was wondering if you could provide me with some advice on what I can do to limit the signs of aging, specifically forehead lines and also the dry look on my skin. I think my problem is sun damage. I have thought about potentially getting minor Botox for just the forehead, but would be afraid it would be too noticeable.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Yes, you can go for Botox (Botulinum toxin) nevertheless I would suggest you to use Cellex C serum and Hydra 5B complex twice daily.
  • It contains vitamin C, which is a potent antioxidant, helps in collagen synthesis. Hence, alteration of aging sign and carries no side effects.
  • Always clean your face twice daily with a good cleanser.
