If you are considering a cosmetic procedure to rejuvenate your appearance, you have likely wondered about the possibility of all the benefits that you can receive from BOTOX®. You have also likely done some research on the product and you understand how it can benefit your skin and your overall appearance. However, you may be wondering if you are a good candidate for the product.

What Is BOTOX?
BOTOX® is an injectable that relaxes the muscles in areas that most commonly form dynamic wrinkles on the face, such as the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes. Dynamic wrinkles are different than the wrinkles that form with age; these are formed over time with repetitive, drastic facial expressions.

By relaxing the muscles, the treatment works to soften these dynamic wrinkles and prevent the formation of new ones. The result is a brighter, younger-looking face. BOTOX® isn’t just for wrinkles; the injections can also be carefully administered in the proper areas to correct facial asymmetry.

In addition to providing results quickly, this lunchtime procedure can be done quickly with no downtime. Once treatment is finished, you can go back to your daily routine. This makes it a great option for patients who want to look younger but don’t want to undergo surgery.

Am I a Good Candidate for BOTOX®?
If you want to get rid of dynamic wrinkles, prevent them from forming or both, this treatment may be right for you. You may also benefit from this treatment if you are uncomfortable with asymmetry in the face and want to correct it.

If you are a man, you may be wondering if you qualify for BOTOX® treatment. The answer is definitely yes! Many people have the mistaken idea that most cosmetic treatments are only designed for women, but nothing could be further from the truth. Men have been able to benefit greatly from this product. Men can enjoy the same younger appearance and confidence boost that women do from this treatment.

Overall, most people interested in getting BOTOX® are good candidates for it, especially if they are in good general health and have reasonable expectations. If you are interested in exploring your options, we also offer two similar treatments, Dysport® and XEOMIN®.

Of course, the best way to find out if you are a good candidate for BOTOX® is by asking the medical professionals at Lincoln Park Aesthetics. Conveniently located in Chicago, we gladly provide patients in the area with a wide variety of cosmetic procedures tailored to their needs. If you are interested in this treatment, call our office today to schedule your consultation.
