Am I a Good Candidate for Botox?
When patients think of cosmetic injectables, one of the most recognized names in the business comes to mind: Botox. Botox is a neuromodulator that is used for a variety of medical conditions. In fact, Botox can be used to treat overactive bladder, chronic headaches and migraines, and even hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). But one of the best ways to utilize Botox is for facial enhancement. Botox is best utilized on the upper third of the face where dynamic wrinkles are caused by muscle contractions. The doctors of Keys Dermatology can educate patients on the benefits of Botox and the ways in which it can be used in dermatology.
What is Botox?
Botox is a medication formulated with botulinum toxin type A. This medication will reduce the contraction of muscles on the face, therefore smoothing specific areas. Botox can treat:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead folds
- Glabellar lines (elevens between the eyebrows)
Botox injections provide results that are noticeable within a few days and can last several months before reinjection is required.
Who is a candidate for Botox?
Patients who are interested in antiaging solutions such as cosmetic injectables are encouraged to work with our team to determine if they are appropriate candidates. Most adult men and women with mild to moderate signs of aging are often good candidates for this treatment, as well as many of our other cosmetic injectables such as dermal fillers and collagen stimulators. A consultation appointment with the team at Keys Dermatology is the first step in finding out more about Botox.
How much does Botox cost?
Botox treatments are determined based on the amount of medication used to achieve results. During the initial evaluation appointment, our doctors can offer patients an approximate cost of treatments.
