Am I a Good Candidate for Botox?

service-4Botox continues to be a very popular treatment for those looking to reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles throughout the face. It is a great solution for those who may feel unhappy with their appearance due to aging or other factors. Botox is a series of injections just under the skin that work to paralyze or freeze the muscles that contract to cause wrinkles and lines. These injections can last from a few to several weeks and it is important to know that continued injections are necessary to sustain the results. A good candidate for Botox is someone who is in generally good overall health. Patients must be at least 18 years old. Some patients are looking to set up a continual treatment program while others are simply looking for short-term solution for a special event. Those with a history of neuromuscular disease, deep scars, skin disorders, or marked facial asymmetry may find that Botox is not the best option for them. This is something that is typically discussed at length with the doctor before treatment is decided upon and completed. There are certain situations when Botox may not be the most effective treatment. When a patient is seeking a more permanent or profound change to their looks, the redundant treatment of Botox may not make as much sense as a facelift of necklift would. For example, if a patient is hoping to improve the look of excess skin caused by long-term exposure to the sun over the years, Botox injections will not be enough. Dr. Richard J. Brown offers several rejuvenation surgeries such as facelifts, eyelid surgery, browlifts, rhinoplasty and facial implants to provide a more permanent solution to those seeking changes to their appearances. These procedures tighten the deeper structure of the face and remove excess skin, which may be the result of sun exposure or the general aging process. Dr. Brown starts by first meeting with the patient and discussing what their desires and goals are. From there, he will offer ideas on what procedures or treatments will work the best and which ones make the most sense. In some cases, Botox injections will serve the purpose. A patient may not be at a point where they need surgery to resolve their issues with their appearance. In other cases, Dr. Brown will discuss surgical procedures to address the target area.
