    Who is a Good Candidate For Botox Injections?

    Botox Injections

    Botox injections is a top ranked cosmetic procedure which is useful for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines in the face and neck. Botox injectables contain botulinum toxin, which is a form of neurotoxin. It helps in relaxing muscles and smoothing out wrinkles and lines. Botox injections are useful in improving the appearance of crow’s feet, forehead furrows, frown lines, and neck skin bands.

    Plastic surgeon Dr. Paul McCluskey provides Botox injections for facial wrinkle reduction to patients in Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and surrounding communities.

    When Should You Consider Botox?

    You may want to consider getting Botox treatment if you want to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. Your doctor would decide you are an ideal candidate if:

    • Your facial wrinkles are moderate to severe
    • You have general good health
    • The wrinkles are on the forehead, between the eyes or around the neck
    • Your expectations are realistic

    Ideal Candidacy for Botox Injections

    Suitable candidates for Botox are aged between 18 and 65 years of age. They should have no history of neuromuscular conditions and should also be in general good health. Individuals that need to eliminate or reduce mild to moderate signs of facial aging make good candidates. It’s crucial that the candidates understand the complications associated with Botox.

    High satisfaction levels can be achieved by Botox injections if the candidate wants a noninvasive med spa treatment. This is even when the results are temporary in nature. You can always receive the treatment again in the future for long-lasting results.

    Working professionals and busy mothers prefer Botox treatments since it does not involve any downtime. Risks of Botox surgeries are lesser as compared to surgery.

    Botox for Young Adults

    Botox is being sought by many younger people as well to delay the onset of facial signs of aging. Many young people choose to get Botox injectables right before a special occasion, such as a wedding. This allows them to enjoy a more youthful experience for a certain period of time.

    Younger patients with deep creases or saggy facial skin because of genetic reasons may consider choosing dermal fillers in place of Botox. Botox injections are effective in treating dynamic facial wrinkles which occur because of underlying overactive muscles. They cannot help much with wrinkles occurring because of facial volume loss or tissue laxity.

    Unsuitable Candidates for Botox

    You are not an ideal candidate for Botox if:

    • You are allergic to botulinum toxin or any other ingredient in the product
    • The target area has a skin infection
    • You are breast feeding or pregnant
    • You have myasthenia gravis, ALS or some other nerve or muscle condition
    • You have severe infection or illness

    Few other people that should not undergo Botox treatment are the ones with:

    • Ptosis (drooping eyelids)
    • Weakness in target muscles
    • Very thick facial skin
    • Deep facial scars
    • Marked facial asymmetry
    • Skin disorders at the target treatment site
