Most people usually struggle with the decision of getting Botox® simply because they are waiting for the “right time.” The truth is that there’s no right time or age for having preventative treatments. When you start noticing issues with your skin-like lines, you should consider Botox®. Although lines appear at different times, Botox® is approved for patients who have attained 18 years. So, after achieving the right age, how do you determine that Botox® is the best solution for you?
Candidates for Preventative Botox®
There are different causes of wrinkles and lines. These causes include aging, ultraviolet light, repeated facial expressions, and smoking, among others. Adults who start noticing these lines on their faces are good candidates for Botox® preventative treatment.
Botox® can correct different types of wrinkles which appear on other areas of the face. Many people struggling with wrinkles usually notice them near the eyes, both ends of the lips, and the forehead.
Not every person beyond the age of 18 years qualifies for Botox® treatment. In addition, several characteristics disqualify you from receiving Botox®. These traits include ptosis, thick facial skin, neuromuscular disorder, deep scarring, and other medical-related complications.
Risks and Side Effects
Botox® has numerous cosmetic and medical uses. Botox® is an FDA-approved substance with low side effects and risks. However, depending on several factors, a patient can experience unwanted effects. These effects include numbness, stomach upset, headache, dry eye, mild swelling, and many more.
It is essential to undergo a thorough assessment that clears you for Botox®. This prevents complications from arising. If you have an allergy or infection on the injection site, Botox® is not recommended because it risks your well-being.
