While you may have heard individuals rant and rave about the benefits that come from using Botox, you may not be sure if it is the right option for you. Here are some things that you should know when determining if visiting our Wichita KS office and requesting Botox injections will help you reach your cosmetic goals.
The main ingredient in Botox is something that has been studied for over a hundred years. It has been approved by the FDA in order to help individuals fight the aging process by addressing their dynamic wrinkles as well as to help individuals who are experiencing medical problems, like muscle spasms, migraines, and excessive underarm sweating. When you use Botox, you can feel confident knowing that it is a safe product.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Women who have dynamic wrinkles benefit from these injections. It can help women to feel more confident as they are getting older. It is a perfect tool to give a woman a more youthful and rested look. The injections address dynamic wrinkles, including crow’s feet and frown lines. In order to qualify for these treatments, a woman cannot be pregnant or nursing. Many women have found, though, that this is a perfect treatment to use after pregnancy and nursing as part of an overall makeover.
Men can also benefit from Botox injections. Men have some of the same cosmetic concerns as women. Many men have found that these injections can help them to stay relevant in the workplace and can help them in their personal lives. It is a discrete treatment that can refresh a man’s appearance without giving him a worked on look.
A person must be at least 18 years old in order to qualify for this treatment. Individuals who are this young usually do not need to refresh their appearance because they are not yet fighting dynamic wrinkles. However, this treatment has been able to help individuals to prevent dynamic wrinkles. So it may be appropriate for some individuals who are in their mid-to-late 20’s. The FDA has not approved this treatment for individuals over the age of 65. However, we do offer other cosmetic treatments to help individuals who are over 65 and want to look their best.
What Kind of Results Can You Expect?
When you visit us for your initial consultation, we are going to examine your facial wrinkles. We can use Botox injections in order to relax certain facial muscles in order to smooth out crow’s feet, frown lines, and other dynamic wrinkles. These injections can give your face an overall more youthful look.
Most of our clients can enjoy the benefits that come from this product for about three months. After that time, they will need to visit our office for a touch up treatment.
