If you are looking for a way to refresh and renew your face, BOTOX® is an excellent option. This minimally-invasive treatment temporarily relaxes the tiny muscles beneath your facial skin, which stops them from contracting and causing wrinkles. While the results are not permanent, it is such a fast and easy treatment that most people have no problem returning at regular intervals for follow-up appointments. Read more below to find out if you have what is needed to be a good candidate for these treatments.
Do You Have Mild to Moderate Facial Wrinkles?
BOTOX® is appropriate for smaller lines and wrinkles of the skin that have not yet “set.” These are typically called expression lines or dynamic wrinkles and pop up on your face when you smile, frown or make another facial expression.
Are You Trying to Prevent Future Lines and Wrinkles?
Even if you do not yet have fine lines or wrinkles, you may still be a candidate for BOTOX® if you want to prevent future lines from forming. Many individuals in their twenties and thirties get preventative treatments, which prevent creases from appearing when they make facial expressions.
Are You in Good Health?
To experience good and safe results with BOTOX®, you should be in generally good health and should not be fighting acute illness or infection.
Are You Looking for a Fast, Easy Treatment?
If you have looked into a facelift or browlift, you will know that these treatments are surgeries that require general anesthesia, incisions and plenty of downtime as you recover. On the other hand, BOTOX® is fast and easy. Most treatments take just minutes and allow you to go right back to your normal activities. Side effects are minimal and usually resolve within a few hours. Keep in mind that this treatment provides a temporary fix and that to maintain your good results, you will need to have additional treatments every so often.
Of course, the best way to determine if you are a good candidate for BOTOX® or if a different treatment would be best for you is to meet with our provider at Eminence Medical Aesthetics in Princeton to discuss your needs and your goals for your skin.
