BOTOX® is an amazing cosmetic treatment that has been used for years and has increasingly grown in popularity. Of course, for those who have used it, it is no wonder that it is so popular. It is an incredibly safe and effective option for treating some of the most common signs of aging on the skin.
BOTOX® is the right choice for individuals with beginning signs of aging on the skin that show up as fine lines and wrinkles. In particular, BOTOX® is approved for expression lines, which are those lines that form mainly when the individual is making a facial expression. However, when the face is at rest, these lines fade away, and the skin becomes smooth.
This treatment is FDA-approved to treat fine lines and wrinkles across the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes, which are often called crow’s feet. These are known as dynamic wrinkles.
Good candidates should have generally healthy skin with good skin tone and no rashes or infections in the desired treatment area. Candidates should tell us about all medications and herbal supplements or treatments that they are taking because these could interact with the treatment.
Candidates should also understand that this is a temporary treatment. The results of the treatments typically last for about three months or so before a touch-up treatment is needed. However, the longer that you receive BOTOX® injections, the longer you may be able to go between treatments.
Individuals wanting BOTOX® treatments should have realistic expectations for how the treatment can and cannot help them.
