In order to be a good candidate for Botox you should:
- Be between 18 and 65 years old
- Be in strong overall health
- Have realistic expectations
- Have wrinkles that can be successfully treated
Botox is directly injected into particular facial muscles using a very small needle. Discomfort lasts a few seconds and is minimal. Once injected, Botox blocks nerve impulses from targeting particular facial muscles (effectively immobilizing them) so that the skin can relax, smoothing wrinkles and facial lines in targeted areas for the treatment period. Results can usually be seen within a few days and can last for 3-4 months. Botox injections are administered on an outpatient basis and can be repeated once the results fade.
Botox treatment carries few risks and is generally safe for most patients. Common side effects include swelling, mild numbness and bruising or tingling in the targeted area. You can reduce the risk of numbness and bruising by avoiding rubbing or touching the targeted area for the first day after treatment. It is important to highlight that some patients do not experience any improvement following Botox treatment. In order to minimize risks, you should be screened for allergic reactions to Botox prior to having the full treatment.
Pregnant or nursing women or people with neurological disorders should not undergo Botox treatment as the effects on the fetus, breast milk and neurological disorders are unknown
