When you get older, you notice fine lines and wrinkles start to appear, and you might wonder what non-surgical procedures are available to reverse signs of aging. BOTOX® in Baton Rouge is a popular anti-aging treatment that can help you turn back the clock on your appearance without surgery. It uses an injection treatment to rejuvenate the face. However, it may not be suitable for everyone. You can learn if you are a candidate for BOTOX® in Baton Rouge when you visit our office.
You are in Good Overall Health
BOTOX® typically does not require a recovery period, but at your initial consultation, we will examine your overall health and find out if you have allergies to ingredients used in the treatment, autoimmune disorders, and skin infections in the desired treatment area.
You are Between 18 and 65 Years Old
BOTOX® treatment is suggested for candidates between the ages of 18 and 65, though the cut-off age is debated. That’s because the treatment may not be as effective at certain ages. People over the age of 65 may have weaker neural junctions, and muscle tone also tends to decrease as you age. Discuss concerns about age and other options with our professional during your consultation at our office in Baton Rouge.
You Have Dynamic Wrinkles
Deep facial scarring, thick facial skin, or marked facial asymmetry cannot be treated with these injections. BOTOX® in Baton Rouge is made to treat moderate to severe wrinkles that appear on the forehead, between the eyes, and on the forehead. It treats dynamic wrinkles, which form when the skin contracts, such as when you smile or frown. Dynamic wrinkles include frown lines, forehead creases, and crow’s feet. As you get older, the muscles have a harder time contracting back into position when you make facial expressions.
