BOTOX provides a quick and effective remedy for the facial lines and wrinkles that age, stress, worry, and environmental factors can produce, even on a younger person’s face. A BOTOX injection skin treatment smoothes frown lines on the forehead, between the eyes, and at the base of the nose.
With BOTOX, derived from Botulinum Toxin, “crow’s feet” wrinkles at the corners of the eyes fade or disappear for a more youthful and vital facial appearance.
What Is BOTOX?
BOTOX is an injectable agent used to temporarily diminish or eliminate lines and wrinkles on the face by relaxing underlying facial muscles.
BOTOX contains a highly diluted form of the toxin and has been proven safe.
How To Know If You Are A Candidate For Botox?
The FDA has approved Botox for people aged 18 to 65. So, if you are getting dynamic wrinkles, then you may consider the BOTOX treatment. BOTOX will help soften the wrinkles which will appear on your skin. But you shouldn’t use it if you:
Are allergic to any ingredients in BOTOX or BOTOX.
Are allergic to another botulinum toxin brand (such as Myobloc, Xeomin or Dysport) or had any side effect from these products in the past.
Have a skin infection or other condition in the injection area.
Have breathing problems, such as asthma.
Have difficulty swallowing.
Have bleeding issues.
Plan to undergo surgery.
Have had facial surgery.
Have weakness in your forehead muscles.
Have drooping eyelids.
BOTOX should be avoided if you are planning or trying to conceive a child, are pregnant, are planning to breastfeed or are currently breastfeeding. It’s better to be safe, and you can always have BOTOX later on.
BOTOX is most effective on the dynamic wrinkles which appear on your skin due to movement. For e.g., the movement caused due to smiling causes lines to form on your face. These lines are dynamic wrinkles.
