You likely have heard about the amazing results BOTOX® treatments can produce. So you may be wondering to yourself if you are a good candidate for the treatment. It’s good to note that because BOTOX® is so safe, the vast majority of people are good candidates for this treatment. However, there are some things to consider when determining if it is the right treatment for you.
As with any medical treatment, BOTOX® treatments are going to produce the best results in people who are physically healthy. This means that a good candidate would not have a condition that causes them to bleed excessively. They would not have a history of neuromuscular disease, such as multiple sclerosis. A good candidate should not be pregnant or nursing.
It’s interesting to note that there is a popular trend among young people to get BOTOX® treatments as a way to prevent dynamic wrinkles. There is a lot of evidence that points to the fact that preventing dynamic wrinkles is possible by eliminating the conditions that cause their formation in the first place. The sooner you address dynamic wrinkles, the better chance you have of getting positive results from the treatment.
BOTOX® affects the way that your muscles and your nerves interact. A good candidate for treatment should not have existing weaknesses in the targeted muscles. Your muscles should be healthy for predictable results.
You may be a good candidate for BOTOX® if you do not have deep facial scars or very thick facial skin. The same is true of individuals who have drastic facial asymmetry. That being said, everyone has some facial asymmetry.
Before your first BOTOX® injection, we are going to want to talk to you about your medical history. We’re going to be keenly interested in all of the medications that you have taken in the past as well as any vitamins and herbal supplements you are using right now. These could have an impact on the way BOTOX® works with your body.
It is good to have realistic expectations for the results. BOTOX® has been shown to help people reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. Some people respond better to the treatment than others. If you come into the treatment with realistic expectations and good physical health, it is very likely that you are an excellent candidate.
