You’re tired of waking up each morning to see new age lines. While they may be from years of laughing with family and friends, you’d rather keep those memories alive in your mind, not on your face. As you contemplate the idea of facial aesthetic treatment, you begin to wonder about the types of wrinkles BOTOX can treat. What about crow’s feet or lines between your eyes? Keep reading to discover how effective this injectable treatment can be in erasing fine lines for a smoother, more youthful appearance.
Can All Wrinkles Be Treated with BOTOX?
No matter where your wrinkles or fine lines appear on your face, you’ll be pleased to learn that this FDA-approved injectable can target many of the most common areas, such as:
- Frown lines (those located between your eyes)
- Forehead lines
- Bunny line (those located at the top of your nose)
- Crow’s feet (those that form around your eyes)
- Under the eyes
- Lipstick lines
How Can I Know if I’m a Good Candidate for BOTOX?
Now that you know which areas can be effectively treated with BOTOX, your next question may be whether you are a good candidate for treatment. It might seem that most people can undergo this type of care without much worry or concern; however, a thorough consultation with a professional is required.
The reason is that certain individuals or those with various conditions should avoid BOTOX, including:
- Pregnant women or those who are breastfeeding
- Those with neuromuscular disorders (i.e., ALS)
- Anyone with asthma or emphysema
- Individuals who are allergic to cow’s milk protein
A complete examination of your facial skin and a discussion of your overall health will be necessary to ensure that you can move forward more confidently.
How Long Does It Take for Results to Show?
Although it would be nice for results to be instantaneous, they are not. It will likely take several weeks before you begin to see a noticeable difference in your appearance; however, it is not uncommon for results to last as long as three or four months before needing another injection.
BOTOX is a beneficial method of treatment that can turn back the clock on aging. No matter the type of wrinkles you have, trust that this injectable solution can do the trick to help you see smoother, more vibrant skin.
