If you have been interested in Botox® for a while, it is likely that you have looked at some before and after photographs of individuals who have used this treatment. You likely have a realistic idea of what it can do. You know that it can go a long way in smoothing out unwanted wrinkles, but you also realize that it does not take a person who is 50 and make them look like they are 20. We would like to help you as you make your choice about using this product.
Who is a Good Candidate?
When most people think about using cosmetic treatments, they usually think about women who want to increase their facial volume, improve the condition of their skin, or erase their dynamic wrinkles. And while it is true that women want to look their best, it is also true that men are interested in having an attractive appearance. Botox® definitely helped them in achieving this goal.
In order to qualify for Botox® to use for cosmetic purposes, both men and women need to be between the ages of 18 and 65. There are certain health issues that would disqualify a person from being a good candidate for this treatment. For example, if a person has a health problem that affects their nerves or muscles, this may not be the right treatment for them. The treatment is designed to relax the facial muscles and interrupt signals that are sent through the nerves.
The skin in the area where the Botox® will be injected needs to be healthy. If a person is dealing with an infection, it is good to let the infection clear up first. If a person has thick skin or facial scars, this may not be the best option for them. While a person who is in these situations may not qualify for this treatment, this does not mean that we do not have other treatments that could benefit them. Individuals with all circumstances are invited to contact us to learn about other treatments that we have available to help them address the signs of aging and improve their appearance.
Say Goodbye to Dynamic Wrinkles
Almost everyone has heard of Botox®. While almost everyone knows about it, not everyone understands what it does. Many are surprised to find out that Botox® actually only treats one thing. It is used to relax facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. So in order to be a good candidate for the product, you need to have dynamic wrinkles that you would like to get rid of.
