Throughout the world, BOTOX® is making waves as one of the most effective non-surgical treatments for dynamic wrinkles. This powerful injectable solution can treat crow’s feet, perioral wrinkles, and frown lines for a smoother, younger-looking visage. These procedures do not require incisions, downtime, or any major alterations of the facial tissues. The treatments can be the ideal way to freshen up your looks. There are several ways to determine whether or not BOTOX® is the best cosmetic solution for you.
Determining Candidacy for Treatment
Given that no incisions are made with BOTOX®, this is considered an entirely non-surgical procedure. This means that there are few general health requirements that patients must meet to be considered viable candidates. Generally speaking, good candidates are in good overall health with realistic expectations regarding the treatment and the results.
Different Wrinkle Types
BOTOX® treats wrinkles by relaxing the muscle tension that causes them. This is effective for the treatment of dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkles that are directly linked to facial movement. Our provider can use BOTOX® to minimize or eliminate crow’s feet, laugh lines, or vertical lines around your mouth. However, this treatment cannot restore lost volume or correct superficial skin issues that are commonly associated with aging such as dark spots, melasma or age spots. If you are also dealing with these issues, our team would be happy to provide you with a list of other treatments that can help you achieve your cosmetic goals.
Scheduling a Consultation
Given that BOTOX® treatments typically take only minutes to complete and do entail any serious or uncomfortable aftereffects, people can easily schedule these treatments around their other activities. Best of all, these short visits give patients ample opportunity to review and discuss their cosmetic concerns with our experienced providers. During your consultation with us, you can ask whether or not BOTOX® will address your full range of cosmetic concerns. You can also ask if the treatment can be safely paired with any other procedures that might be necessary for reaching your aesthetic goals.
