All of us face different cosmetic challenges as we get older. We experience things like dynamic wrinkles, a loss of facial volume, sun damage, and other issues. It is good to know that there are a variety of treatments that we can use to combat some of these things. And while it makes us happy to know that there are options, it can sometimes be a little bit confusing choosing the right one for our particular circumstances. If you live in the Baton Rouge area, give us a call. One of the things that many of our clients are interested in when they visit us is BOTOX®. BOTOX® is an amazing treatment that can help to eliminate or greatly reduce dynamic wrinkles. How do you know if you are a good candidate for BOTOX®?
Well, the very first qualification is actually having dynamic wrinkles. This may sound kind of funny since it seems obvious. However, not everyone understands that there are two types of wrinkles that you can experience as you get older. You need to have dynamic wrinkles in order to be a candidate for BOTOX®. These wrinkles happen because of the way your nerves tell your muscles to move and then contract. The deep contractions make your skin crease, which leads to wrinkles. This treatment stops some of the communication that happens between the nerves and muscles, so the muscles are left to relax. This means that the skin can relax as well. This brings a whole host of cosmetic benefits.
As you can imagine, since BOTOX® is designed to interrupt communication between the nerves in the muscles, you need to have a healthy body in order to have good results from this treatment. This is especially the case when it comes to your nerves and muscles. When you come in for your first consultation in our Baton Rouge office, we are going to discuss your overall health and make sure that you are a good candidate.
The great thing about BOTOX® treatment is that it is extremely safe. And the results are very natural-looking. You’ll still be able to make all of your normal facial expressions. The only difference will be that the skin in the treated area remains smooth.
