Candidates for BOTOX® Cosmetic
People who consider treatments for dynamic wrinkles tend to be individuals who are concerned about facial wrinkles that affect their overall look. Because everyone ages differently, there is no ideal age for beginning BOTOX® treatments. Beginning treatments at a younger age can help delay or prevent dynamic wrinkles from forming.
BOTOX® can be combined with injectable dermal fillers, which smooth out deeper facial wrinkles caused by thinning of facial tissue.
Dysport® is another injectable used to treat dynamic wrinkles, and some people interested in BOTOX® may actually be better candidates for Dysport®. Because Dysport® is composed of smaller molecules than BOTOX®, it tends to diffuse over the treatment area more widely, which can be advantageous depending on the area and the individual’s goals. However, BOTOX® may last slightly longer than Dysport®, giving you more time between touch-ups.
During your consultation, Dr. Andan will listen to your concerns and help you decide whether BOTOX® or Dysport® may be better for you.
Your BOTOX® Procedure
Dr. Andan offers complimentary consultations to assess each client’s needs and address all the questions and concerns any person interested in experiencing the benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments might have.
Because BOTOX® is a minimally invasive treatment, your total appointment time should last no more than 30 minutes. Treatments are strategically planned to relax the specific muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles without affecting the surrounding muscles or tissue.
After your treatment, you should not apply any pressure to the areas treated for at least 4 hours, to prevent the product from spreading to other areas.
Your Recovery & Results
Once your treatment is completed, you can resume your normal routine immediately. Some people experience mild bruising in the treatment area, but this should resolve within a few days. Most people notice results within 7 days of their treatment.
After your BOTOX® treatment, you should notice smoother, relaxed and more youthful skin in the treated areas, with less muscle tension and fewer dynamic wrinkles. Treating crow’s feet or frown lines with this muscle relaxant typically results in a more youthful and refreshed look.
