BOTOX® has helped millions of people to erase dynamic wrinkles. It is a safe and effective treatment that is used all around the world. If you are interested in the benefits that come from using this product, you likely wonder if you qualify for treatments. Here are some things you should know.
Say Goodbye to Dynamic Wrinkles
In order to qualify for treatment, you need to have an issue that BOTOX® injections will actually treat. This seems like something that is obvious. However, what people do not always realize is that there are different types of wrinkles that they can develop as they get older. There are both static and dynamic wrinkles. BOTOX® is only effective on one type.
How do you know the difference and what kind of wrinkles you have? All you need to do is take a look in the mirror. When you are making absolutely no facial expressions, do you have wrinkles? Are your wrinkles a result of sagging skin and what seems like a loss of facial volume? If so, you have a static wrinkles. These are best treated using products that will fill in the lost of volume, like dermal fillers. It is also possible to have a fat transfer procedure done.
As you do the same test looking in the mirror, make a couple of different facial expressions. Smile, laugh, or look angry. You will notice how your skin changes as you make different facial expressions. If the wrinkles that you have on your face are primarily caused because of making facial expressions, you are dealing with dynamic wrinkles. This is where BOTOX® can help you.
When the product is gently injected into the facial muscles, it helps them relax. This is a good thing because it lets the skin that sits on top of the muscles relax as well. This leads to a more youthful look.
While this is an extremely popular and safe treatment, it is still a medical treatment. For this reason, you should know about the different health considerations that are looked at when a person would like to have BOTOX® injections. You need to enjoy overall good physical health. If you have a history of neuromuscular diseases, you likely do not qualify. If you are pregnant or nursing, you do not qualify at this point. However, in the future, you may wish to consider having these injections given to you.
Individuals who have marked facial symmetry, thick facial skin, or deep facial scars may not make the best candidates for this treatment. If you have a skin disorder or infection in the area where the treatment will be given, this may not be a good option for you.
