You have heard about BOTOX®, but you are unsure as to whether or not you are a good candidate for the treatment. Well, when you look in the mirror, are you noticing any lines or wrinkles on your face, especially when you make certain facial expressions? Do you see these lines and wrinkles even when you’re not making a facial expression? If so, you may be a good candidate for BOTOX®.
Another thing to consider is your overall health. Good candidates for BOTOX® are in good health and don’t have any conditions that could complicate the treatment. The better your overall health, the better results you will most likely enjoy.
Good candidates also have realistic expectations regarding the treatment and the results. It is important to understand that BOTOX® cannot fix everything. And it won’t make you look like an entirely different person. What it can do is reduce the lines and wrinkles on your face that have been bothering you. It can make your skin look younger and smoother. As a result, it can make you look younger and more refreshed overall.
One common misconception about BOTOX® is that it can treat all types of wrinkles. However, that is simply not true. BOTOX® is designed to treat dynamic wrinkles, which are the wrinkles that appear as a result of making facial expressions. When the muscles that are used to make these facial expressions are relaxed, the skin above them remains smooth. This is exactly what BOTOX® does.
One of the best things about BOTOX® is that it is entirely non-surgical. As such, it is a good alternative for a lot of people who do not qualify for surgical procedures. The treatments are also very convenient since no downtime is involved. Clients can return to virtually all of their normal activities after the treatment, making it extremely convenient for people with busy schedules and lifestyles.
The results of this treatment can last anywhere from three to six months, depending on the situation. And the treatments can be repeated at our office multiple times per year for ongoing benefits.
