Aging gracefully does not necessarily mean that you need to embrace an older locale or look older than you really are. There is nothing that can be done at the moment to completely turn back the clock and help you look as you did when you were a teenager or in your early twenties. However, there are steps you can take to help care for your skin in order to reduce the signs of premature aging. One of the tools that is currently available is BOTOX® treatment. This is one of the most widely used treatments available. It is mainly used to reduce wrinkles, but has been used in a variety of ways to treat many different conditions.
The most important thing that our specialist will look at when determining if you are a good candidate for BOTOX® is the type of wrinkles you have. In order to qualify for these treatments, you need to have wrinkles that are normally treated with BOTOX®. For the most part, BOTOX® treats dynamic wrinkles. These are wrinkles that form as a result of facial expressions you make. When your muscles contract, the skin that lies on top of the muscles moves and forms wrinkles. If you are dealing with static wrinkles, it is likely that our medical professionals are going to recommend other treatments for you to try.
There are other qualifications that you must meet. You need to be over 18 years of age. You must also have good overall health. The area that will be treated with BOTOX® should be free of infection or irritation. Also, our medical professionals will discuss what the results of your treatment will be. You need to have realistic expectations. BOTOX® has been able to effectively remove wrinkles for about six months. However, you will still be the same person and have the same face. During your consultation, our medical professionals will also discuss your medical history. The purpose of this discussion is to find out if you have any medical conditions that would not make your BOTOX® treatment effective.
BOTOX® has proven time and again that it can help to eliminate dynamic wrinkles. It has effectively treated crow’s feet, frown lines, neck bands, creases that appear in the forehead and upper lip lines. It will not make you younger, but it can drastically improve your appearance, making you look younger and feel great about yourself.
