A lot of people mistakenly believe that individuals who go in for either surgical or non-surgical cosmetic procedures do so because they are pursuing perfection. And while this might be the case with a small group of people, the vast majority of individuals who have a cosmetic procedure done do so not because they want perfection, but instead because they want to prevent the signs of premature aging.
In the ideal circumstances, the human body would age at a moderate rate. However, most people live in less than ideal circumstances. They have a stressful life, a busy schedule and are unable to get the diet and exercise they need for optimal health. Many people have a job or engage in recreational activities that leave them exposed to the sun for extended periods of time. All of these things have had a negative effect on their face.
Some people in their youth engaged in habits that were counterproductive, such as smoking, drug abuse and excessive drinking. And now, even though they’ve cleaned up their life, their appearance still has the telltale signs of their youthful activities.
Other people are cursed with genes that make them look a lot older than they really are. They have developed wrinkles on their face, they have lost facial volume and all of these things project an image to others that just does not reflect how they feel on the inside.
Whatever the case, many people who opt for cosmetic procedures do so because they realize that if they don’t take steps now, in just a few years the situation is going to be so bad that they will need more invasive procedures that will only produce minimal results.
This is one of the reasons why so many people are attracted to BOTOX®. Research has clearly shown that BOTOX® can help prevent wrinkles from forming. It can also be used to minimize the appearance of dynamic wrinkles that are already present on the face.
More and more young people are asking themselves if they are a candidate for this injectable. Thankfully, in most cases, the answer is yes. The criteria for being a candidate for BOTOX® includes being over the age of 18 but under the age of 65. A BOTOX® candidate would also be in overall good health. The healthier a person is, the better outcome they will have after a medical procedure.
A person who has BOTOX® done must be in good emotional health. They have to want to have the treatment done for themselves. Anyone who gets these treatments done with the idea of appeasing someone else will only be disappointed.
