Who has not heard of BOTOX®? It is probably the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure on the planet. Some people may be confused about what it actually does, however. BOTOX® is a purified protein solution that affects the signals transmitted from the nerves to the muscles. So, when it is skillfully injected into a person’s face, it relaxes certain facial muscles. This helps to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles.
You may be wondering if BOTOX® is right for you. There are a few factors to take into consideration. First, do you have dynamic wrinkles? It’s good to understand that not all wrinkles are created equal. Just because you have wrinkles on your face does not mean that they are the type of wrinkles that BOTOX® can address.
Static wrinkles, or the wrinkles that are on your face regardless of your facial expressions, cannot be treated with this product. To address those types of wrinkles, you will want to look at dermal fillers or other procedures at our office that are designed to increase facial volume and stimulate collagen production. However, if your wrinkles come and go with your facial expressions, then it is likely that BOTOX® is the right treatment for you.
Another thing to consider is your health. BOTOX® is extremely safe. It has been used by millions of people around the world with little to no side effects. That being said, it is a medical procedure. So, you will need to be in relatively good health to get the most out of this treatment.
In order to be a good candidate for BOTOX®, you should also be emotionally stable. You should want the injections because you want to improve your appearance for yourself. You would not be a good candidate if you are looking to please other people or because you are under pressure from other people. It has to be a personal decision because you want to improve your appearance.
All of these things are just a few of the factors you should consider when determining if BOTOX® is right for you. Of course, the best way to determine if you qualify for treatment is to schedule a consultation at Skin Renewal of Tulsa, conveniently located in Tulsa. Contact us today to book an appointment!
