Over the years, the aging process can start to affect your appearance. It might start in your twenties and become more pronounced in your forties. Not only will you notice it, but others around you may begin to notice as well. Although there is nothing you can do to stop the aging process, treatments are available to help. A common treatment is Botox, which has been approved by the FDA. This is a cosmetic procedure that helps reduce the look of lines and wrinkles on your face and neck.
If you are interested in Botox treatments, you might be wondering if Botox is right for you.
It’s important to understand what this treatment can do for you. Botox might be a good treatment option for you if you are looking for a temporary solution. Botox is not long-lasting, so if you are looking for more dramatic changes, you may want to reconsider.
You must be over the age of 18 to receive Botox treatments. Ideal candidates are less than 50 years old. If you are older than that, it will be less likely to notice results. Botox is not approved for anyone over 65.
Botox is an ideal treatment for those in good health, since it is a medical procedure. If you suffer from nerve damage or muscle conditions, this treatment is not recommended for you.
Condition of Skin
If you have skin disorders or infections, Botox is not a good choice for you as it could cause negative reactions.
Type of Wrinkles
Do you have dynamic wrinkles or static wrinkles? Dynamic wrinkles are the product of repetitive facial expressions like smiling, laughing, or crying. Static wrinkles are the wrinkles on your face that show up due to loss of collagen and fat, and are visible all the time, regardless of your expression.
