Am I a Good Candidate for Anti-Aging Botox® Treatment?

Am I a Good Candidate for Anti-Aging Botox® Treatment?

Most people want to stay young-looking and fresh-faced despite their advancing age. And those who’ve prematurely aged just want to look as young as they really are.

At Lasercare Skin Clinic, Dr. Bruce Sanderson provides a full range of cosmetic anti-aging treatments and therapies. Botox® injections remain one of the most popular anti-aging treatment options among our patients from the Little Rock, Arkansas, area.

Could Botox injections be right for you? How do you know if you’re a good candidate for Botox? Here’s what Dr. Sanderson wants you to know about this reliable cosmetic anti-aging procedure.

Botox helps you look younger

The first question to answer when considering Botox is why rejuvenating your appearance is important to you. Then, you need to ask whether Botox is the right procedure to help you achieve your anti-aging goals.

A more youthful appearance doesn’t just change how the world responds to you. Cosmetic procedures may help you feel more confident or more like yourself. Would looking more like your younger self give you more energy, help you land a job, increase your online dating success, or encourage you to take more risks and seize more opportunities? If so, Botox could help.

Botox is a good way to explore anti-aging cosmetic treatments and learn more about how rejuvenating results make you feel. Your anti-aging results with Botox are temporary, giving you control over your cosmetic therapy over time.

Address dynamic wrinkles with Botox

While Botox works great as an anti-aging treatment, the injection isn’t a magic wand and can’t address all signs of aging. What Botox does is address dynamic wrinkles.

Your Botox injection selectively and temporarily paralyzes muscles that create dynamic wrinkles. When your facial muscles contract, they cause creases in your skin that, with age, can form a permanent wrinkle. Botox stops that contraction and wrinkling from happening.

Only some of the fine lines and wrinkles associated with aging are dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles you can treat with Botox include:

If you want to address static wrinkles not caused by muscle movement, dermal fillers work better than Botox. But you should also know that Botox can be paired with dermal fillers for a more complete anti-aging makeover.

Adjust your Botox results as needed

What if you still aren’t sure about using Botox as an anti-aging cosmetic treatment? Does it help to know that your results are flexible but also long-lasting?

Your Botox injection procedure only takes a few minutes, but your results last many months. Many patients see rejuvenating benefits from Botox for 3-4 months.

The injection procedure isn’t significantly painful. Most patients tolerate the fine needle used for injections well. If you’re anxious about injection treatments, talk to Dr. Sanderson about ways that Botox could be more accessible for you.
