The pressure for people to maintain their youthful appearance grows stronger every single day. It is not uncommon for a person to turn on the television and see an actor or an actress who is as old as their parents, but looks as young as they do. Actors, actresses and other people who are constantly in the public eye have been able to maintain their youthful appearance in part by relying on non-surgical cosmetic treatments like BOTOX®.
BOTOX® is designed to help a person maintain their youthful appearance by reducing dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are the wrinkles that form on the forehead, the corners of the mouth and the sides of the eyes when a person smiles or frown. These wrinkles are caused by the muscles that are moving underneath the skin.
BOTOX® minimizes the appearance of these wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the muscles that move in the face when a person smiles or frowns.
After seeing the wonderful effects that BOTOX® has had for many people, some may start to wonder if they would be a good candidate. A good candidate would be a person who is physically healthy. It is especially important for them to not have a history of neuromuscular diseases, including multiple sclerosis.
It is also recommended that a person who tries BOTOX® treatments be at least 18 years of age. It is not appropriate for women who are nursing or pregnant. Individuals who have a skin disorder that affects the area they are considering to inject would not be a good candidate for BOTOX® treatments.
Additionally, people who have a pre-existing condition that causes the muscles around the area that is going to be treated to weaken should avoid BOTOX®.
BOTOX® treatments are perfect for an individual who has a realistic idea of what the treatments can do for them and who is in good health. When a person gets treatments, they must remember that, while BOTOX® will drastically reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, it will not make them look like they did when they were a teenager.
However, if a person has a realistic idea of what to expect, they are not going to walk away disappointed from the treatment.
Prior to getting BOTOX® treatments, it is important that a person speaks with one of our professionals about their medical history and any medications, supplements or vitamins they are current taking or that they are planning to take in the near future. Certain vitamins, medications or supplements can have a negative reaction with BOTOX®.
