Once we hit our mid or late twenties, aging starts to creep up on us slowly. Visible signs usually appear in our late thirties or early forties. As we continue aging, these changes become more pronounced and noticeable. Reversing the aging process does not seem possible, but some treatment helps address various aspects of aging.
Botox® treatments help in mitigating these signs and comes highly recommended for patients looking to rejuvenate their appearance. As an FDA-approved substance, most patients feel comfortable using it. However, not everyone qualifies for Botox treatment. So, how do you tell if you are eligible for this treatment?
Do You Have a Problem Botox® Can Fix?
Botox® treatment addresses dynamic wrinkles, which appear on the face. These wrinkles usually occur as a result of muscle contraction. For example, when we make facial expressions such as smiling or laughing, lines form around the mouth and nose. Common examples of dynamic wrinkles include crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead creases, and neck bands.
Dynamic wrinkles differ from static wrinkles since static wrinkles appear regardless of facial expressions. Therefore, static wrinkles require other forms of treatment to deal with the loss of facial volume. Patients who feel dynamic wrinkles affect their appearance qualify for Botox.
Are You Within the Ideal Age Range?
Most physicians recommend Botox® for patients between the ages of eighteen and sixty tears. If you want to undergo Botox treatment, below eighteen years or above sixty years, consult an expert to learn of other viable solutions. However, patients presenting aging signs at an early age need to be observed by our medical professionals first.
Are you in Good Health?
After understanding what you stand to gain from a Botox® treatment, you need to ensure you are in good health. Like other medical procedures, healthy patients increase their chances of a successful recovery. In addition, a thorough assessment helps determine whether Botox® is good for you and prevents possible complications.
