“Are you concerned about age-related wrinkles and creases on the upper half of your face? Botox cosmetic may be the solution for you. Botox is a popular treatment for wrinkles, and is generally well tolerated, but you may be wondering – Am I a good candidate for botox injections?
How botox helps wrinkles
Botox is an injectable treatment that provides temporary improvement for dynamic wrinkles, which are formed when the muscles contract. It therefore reduces the appearance of crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines.
Botox is injected into the muscles just below the surface of the skin and relaxes the muscles that normally contract and cause lines and wrinkles to develop. As these muscles relax, the lines and wrinkles above them become less visible.
The effects of botox typically last about 6 months, so repeat treatments are needed to maintain the results.
Are you a good candidate for botox injections?
If you have lines and creases in the upper portion of your face that you’d like to smooth away, you’d probably be a good candidate for botox. Botox is the ideal solution for individuals wanting a non-surgical solution for fine lines in the brow area, at the corner of the eyes, or across the forehead. Candidates must be in good overall health, and at least 18 years of age.
Botox is not the most effective treatment for everyone, so it’s important to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist to see if you are a good candidate.
