It can be disheartening to look in the mirror and realize that the aging process is starting to have an effect on your appearance. The truth is that once we hit our mid to late twenties, our face starts to show the aging process. Once we hit our late thirties or early forties, the change becomes sufficiently pronounced to the point that we can notice it, and those around us notice it. Unfortunately, there is nothing that a person can do to completely stop or completely reverse the aging process. However, there are treatments available that have been shown to be effective when it comes to addressing certain aspects of the aging process. One of the most popular treatments that is available today is BOTOX®.
BOTOX® has been approved by the FDA for use in treating dynamic wrinkles. It has successfully been used on millions of people around the world for more than a decade. For this reason, BOTOX® has developed a reputation that is unmatched in the world of cosmetic procedures. If you have heard about BOTOX® and you are concerned about the way that aging is affecting your face, you might be wondering if you are a good candidate for this product.
First, ask yourself if you have a problem that BOTOX® can fix. This is a product that is designed to treat dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are the wrinkles that develop on your face when you contract your muscles. So when you smile, when you grimace, when you are angry and when you laugh, the wrinkles that appear on your skin are dynamic wrinkles. Examples of dynamic wrinkles include frown lines, crow’s feet, neck bands and creases in your forehead.
Dynamic wrinkles are different from static wrinkles. Static wrinkles are the wrinkles that are on your face regardless of the facial expression you make. These are caused by lost facial volume as well as other deficiencies in your skin. If you have dynamic wrinkles that are affecting the way you feel about your appearance, you meet the first criteria to be a candidate for BOTOX®.
Next, you need to be in the ideal age range. BOTOX® works the best for individuals who are between the ages of 18 and 65. If you are under 18, it is very unlikely that you have developed dynamic wrinkles that require the use of this product. If you have, there’s probably an underlying condition that needs to be observed by our medical professional.
To get the most out of BOTOX®, you have to understand what the product can do for you before you have the procedure performed. BOTOX® will not make you a different person. It will not make you look decades younger. It will minimize the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, thereby making you a better version of yourself. If you understand this going into the procedure, then you are probably a good candidate for BOTOX®.
Finally, you must be in good health. BOTOX® is a medical procedure. As with any medical procedure, the healthier you are, the better the outcome.
BOTOX® is a powerful tool that can help to address some of the effects of aging. If you meet the above-mentioned criteria, you may be a good candidate for its use. The best way to determine your candidacy for this product is to consult the cosmetic professionals at Nicole Norris MD Medical Spa in Peru. Contact us today to schedule your appointment!
