02 Aug Am I a Good Candidate for BOTOX®?
It can be a challenge to see how our face begins to change as we age. If you are like most people, the change was very minor at first. Then it seemed that out of nowhere facial wrinkles began to appear on your forehead, around the sides of your mouth, on the sides of your eyes and other parts of your face. It gets to a point where you have to decide if you are going to accept the natural aging process or if you are going to take advantage of some of the products and techniques that are available to counteract the aging process.
When a person first starts to improve their appearance, they usually don’t jump into a surgical procedure. They want to do something that is non-invasive, but that brings about very good results. This is one of the reasons why so many people are attracted to BOTOX®. It is non-invasive; the results are almost instantaneous and when BOTOX® is applied by one of our well-trained medical professionals, it can create results that are almost as drastic as those produced by some surgical procedures.
A good candidate for this treatment is not happy with the effects that aging has taken on their face and eagerly wants to do something to improve their appearance. A good candidate for BOTOX® needs to be mentally and emotionally stable. This will allow them to have a realistic view of what the procedure can and cannot do for them. BOTOX® candidates also need to be physically healthy.
The product works by blocking the neural signals that cause the muscles in the face to contract, thereby creating dynamic wrinkles. As a result, wrinkles no longer form when the patient makes facial expressions, such as smiling or frowning.
Before getting BOTOX® injections, our highly qualified cosmetic professional is going to sit down with you and review your health history.
