Am I a Candidate for Botox?

    Botox® is one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments on the planet. It has helped countless individuals smooth out dynamic wrinkles on their face and on their forehead. Many have turned to Botox® as a way of getting rid of frown lines, crow’s feet, and other signs of aging.

    Since this is a non-surgical treatment, you do not need to go under anesthesia, and there is no real recovery time after the treatment. Botox® is injected in a precise way with the goal of affecting predetermined nerve endings. This is not a filler treatment but instead a product that is designed to relax the facial muscles that lead to the formation of dynamic wrinkles. When those muscles are relaxed, the wrinkles become less noticeable.

    Due to the popularity of this treatment, you may be wondering if you are a good candidate for Botox®. Our team at Simply.Aesthetics can determine whether or not this is the right treatment for you.

    Who is an Ideal Candidate?

    You may be a good candidate for this treatment if you have thin wrinkles on your face that become more prominent when you make facial expressions. These wrinkles are called dynamic wrinkles because they are more apparent when you’re making a dynamic facial expression. Dynamic wrinkles can be seen on the forehead, around the sides of the eyes, and in other areas. They are caused by contracting facial muscles pulling your skin in a particular direction and then making the skin relaxed in another area.

    If you have dynamic wrinkles, it’s likely that Botox® will work for you. That’s because this treatment is designed to smooth out the wrinkles in your skin that are caused by muscle contractions.

    The best candidates for these treatments are individuals who are in good health and have realistic expectations regarding the treatment and the results. It’s good to keep in mind that the results of the treatment are temporary; however, treatment sessions can be easily repeated as needed for ongoing results.
