BOTOX® is a purified protein solution that has been used for years as a cosmetic procedure to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. It is especially effective for reducing the appearance of frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead furrows.

To be a good candidate for BOTOX® treatments, you need to be in good overall health. Anyone with a history of neuromuscular disease, skin disorders, marked facial asymmetry, or deep scars may not be a good candidate. When you consult with our specialist, you can learn more about your personal case and if this is the right treatment for you.

You may be a good candidate for BOTOX® if:

• Your facial wrinkles are moderate to severe.
• Your wrinkles are dynamic. This means they were formed because of the movement of your facial muscles.
• You have realistic expectations about the treatment and the results. Our specialist can help you understand the possible results so that you are happy with the outcome. The level of improvement of the appearance of wrinkles can vary among patients. If there is little improvement, another treatment may be recommended.

When you visit our specialist, you may be asked about your medical history, any prescription medications you are taking, as well as dietary supplements and herbal remedies. The injections will be done in the comfort of our office and usually take only minutes to complete. After the treatment, you can return to work or most all of your other daily activities. There is little to no recovery time needed.

It is important to understand that the results of BOTOX® are temporary. After multiple months have passed, you will need to return to our office for repeat injections in order to maintain the results. However, since the treatments are quick and simple, follow-up treatments are convenient, even for people with busy schedules.

You can get all the facts about BOTOX®, including whether or not you are a candidate for treatment, during a consultation at VIDA Aesthetic Medicine.
