You have likely heard about all of the benefits that a person can receive from BOTOX® treatments. These injections can help patients get rid of dynamic wrinkles on the forehead, the neck, around the mouth and the areas between and underneath the eyes. If you’re interested in BOTOX®, you may be wondering if you are a good candidate for this procedure.
So who makes a good BOTOX® candidate? First, you should have dynamic wrinkles that you would like to treat. It is commonly believed that all wrinkles are the exactly the same. However, wrinkles can be either dynamic or static. Dynamic wrinkles form when a person uses their facial muscles to express emotions. Your smile is the best example of this. When you look in the mirror and smile, the muscles in your face are going to move in order to make that expression. The interesting thing is that people have dynamic wrinkles at all ages. However, dynamic wrinkles become problematic as we get older. Instead of your skin springing back to normal after making an expression, it stays creased. BOTOX® can help with this problem.
Second, good candidates also have reasonable expectations and are in good physical and emotional health. BOTOX® works by relaxing the muscles in the treated areas. When these areas are relaxed, they won’t form dynamic wrinkles when you make facial expressions. Contrary to popular belief, you will still be able to express all of your emotions as easily as you did before. The only difference is that once you receive treatment, these facial expressions won’t leave dynamic wrinkles in their wake. By smoothing these wrinkles and preventing the formation of new ones, your treatment will leave you with a refreshed, rejuvenated appearance.
If you are still unsure if you would make a good candidate for this treatment, we can help you decide during your consultation. We will have an honest and compassionate discussion with you to go over your questions and concerns, and we will help you learn what to expect with the procedure. Once it is determined that this treatment is right for you, we will be able to tell you about the many benefits that the product can provide.
The benefits of BOTOX® aren’t just cosmetic. In fact, it was originally developed to treat muscle spasms. This product can also be very beneficial in the treatment of migraines, excessive sweating and jaw and back pain.
One of the best things about BOTOX® is that it works for men and women. When it was first starting to get popular, women were more likely than men to get BOTOX® treatments. However, as cosmetic procedures have become more popular and effective, more and more men are interested in looking younger and looking their best. This simple treatment can help men and women alike do just that.
The benefits of BOTOX® go on and on.
