BOTOX® Cosmetic is used to soften and eliminate dynamic wrinkles: the facial lines and folds that appear as you age because of repeated facial expressions. These types of wrinkles – including crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines – can sometimes be difficult to treat with dermal fillers, but BOTOX® has proven both safe and successful in treating these cases.
Both women and men who have dynamic wrinkles may be good candidates for BOTOX®. However, before you undergo treatment, we will evaluate your medical history to determine whether or not you have a health condition that would interfere with BOTOX®. Generally speaking, people who have neurological disorders or cardiovascular diseases are not ideal candidates for BOTOX® treatment. Also, if you have diabetes, this may prevent you from being a good candidate.
It is also important to have realistic expectations about what BOTOX® can accomplish. Remember that repeat injections will be necessary if you want to maintain your results. As long as you understand this – and as long as your medical history shows no contraindications – you are free to take advantage of the rejuvenating power of BOTOX® Cosmetic.
