BOTOX® has taken the world by storm as an effective way to address dynamic wrinkles. There was a time when these injections were only affordable to individuals who were very wealthy or by individuals who were famous. Now, the injections can be afforded by the majority of people. In fact, every single year millions of people have BOTOX® injections done. You may be asking yourself if you are a good candidate.
The very first qualification for candidacy is having an issue that BOTOX® can treat. BOTOX® treatment is designed to address dynamic wrinkles. These are the wrinkles you see on your face when you make facial expressions. For example, when you smile and you see wrinkles develop along the sides of your eyes, these are dynamic wrinkles.
Although this is a non-surgical procedure, it is still a medical treatment. So as with all medical treatments, to get the most out of BOTOX®, you need to be as healthy as possible. The healthier you are, the quicker your body will heal from the injections, and the better reaction you will have to the ingredients in the BOTOX® solution.
Before getting BOTOX® treatment, our medical professionals are going to look at your health history. We are going to look at your history of illnesses, the medications you currently take as well as medications you have taken in the past, and we will ask you about any herbal supplements you are taking. It is essential for you to be as honest as possible with our team. Based on this information, we will be able to determine if these injections are right for you.
To be a good candidate for BOTOX® injections, you need to have a realistic expectation of what the treatment can do. This injectable can drastically reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, but it will not make a 40-year-old man look like he did when he was 20. That is just not realistic thinking.
Generally speaking, the best results for BOTOX® tend to come to those who thoroughly understand what the procedure does, have clear in mind the results that they want and are having the procedure done not to please another individual, but instead to improve the way they feel about themselves.
