You have very likely seen celebrities who have had BOTOX® treatments. You may even know some coworkers, neighbors or family members who have used these treatments as well. You like the idea of looking younger and having a more refreshed appearance. However, you may be wondering if BOTOX® is right for you.
The very first thing that you should know about BOTOX® is that it is a safe product. This product has been in use for many years and has received approval by the FDA. It is approved for cosmetic use as well as medical use. The fact that is so widely used can help you feel confident if you feel a little bit nervous trying the product for the first time.
You must be in overall good health in order to qualify for treatment. If you are dealing with a serious health issue, you may not qualify. However, the best way for you to find out about what kind of health issues would disqualify you for treatment would be to schedule a consultation with us. If it is found that you are not a good candidate for this treatment, we can talk to you about other options we have available in order to help you deal with wrinkles and achieve a more youthful look.
The main ingredient in BOTOX® is a purified protein solution. It is injected right into the muscles in order to cause them to relax. The skin on top of the muscles is smooth and line-free as a result.
Some individuals have the mistaken idea that all wrinkles that appear on the face are the same. BOTOX® is effective at treating dynamic wrinkles. So, if you have crow’s feet or other wrinkles that are caused because of the contraction of facial muscles, BOTOX® is the right product to use. If you are dealing with static wrinkles, which are wrinkles that are there because your skin is sagging and losing volume, we can talk about facial fillers and other options we have available to treat these wrinkles.
BOTOX® is an amazing treatment that can give you a younger appearance without the need for surgery or downtime. Feel free to schedule a consultation at Ayala ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery in McAllen to see if BOTOX® is right for you. Our medical staff would be happy to address whatever questions or concerns you may have about this treatment. Contact us today to book your appointment!
