If you’d like to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, you probably already know that botox is the top-rated wrinkle smoothing injectable. Botox is the leading non-surgical cosmetic treatment on the market, but despite this, it is not the best option for everyone. That’s one reason why potential patients often ask their doctor this question – Am I an ideal candidate for botox treatment.
Botox Cosmetic Treatment
Botox cosmetic is a purified form of botulinum toxin A. The treatment takes only 15-20 minutes to complete, and is relatively painless. Botox is injected into the targeted muscle using a very fine needle, and over time it works to prevent the contraction of the muscles that cause expression lines to develop. The effects of botox typically last between 3-6 months.
Are you an ideal candidate for botox treatments?
If you need help reducing crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines, you may be a good candidate for botox treatments. You should also be in good overall health.
However, it’s important to remember that botox is not an effective treatment for all areas of the face. It works best on dynamic wrinkles that form as a result of expressions such as frowning or squinting.
Botox is not a good treatment for women who are pregnant or nursing, nor is it designed to combat advanced signs of aging.
Are you considering botox treatment? It’s strongly recommended that you consult with a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon who is also an experienced botox injector, to find out if you are a good candidate. Search our directory to find a practice in your area.
