Am I a Candidate for BOTOX?
The benefits of BOTOX® have been seen by millions of people around the world. BOTOX® is by far the most popular non-surgical medical cosmetic procedure available today. It is performed to the tune of around six million treatments every year.
If you are wondering if you would make a good candidate for this treatment, there are a few things to consider. The first thing to consider is your health. To get the most out of BOTOX® treatments, should be in good overall health.
In general, good candidates for BOTOX® include healthy adults who are unhappy with the appearance of dynamic wrinkles on their face. These are the wrinkles that you see on your face when you make expressions, such as smiling, frowning and the like. Popular treatment areas include the forehead, crow’s feet and frown lines. During your consultation, Dr. Peterson Pierre will show you which areas will respond best to BOTOX® injections.
BOTOX® works by relaxing the muscles responsible for forming dynamic wrinkles, thereby smoothing these wrinkles out and preventing the formation of new ones in the future. To maintain your results, you can safely come back for touch-up injections once the treatment starts to wear off.
Just as no two patients are alike, results will vary from person to person. For this reason, Dr. Peterson Pierre will talk to you about what you should expect from BOTOX® treatments given your specific situation. He will be able to provide you with invaluable information that will help you decide if this treatment is right for you.
Of course, the best way to find out if you are a good candidate is to come in for your consultation with Dr. Peterson Pierre at Pierre Skin Care Institute. Dr. Pierre is a board-certified plastic surgeon with a true passion for his work, and he strives to help patients in the Thousand Oaks and Westlake Village areas reach their cosmetic goals.
