Good Candidates for Botox
If you are looking for a non-invasive way to resolve your facial wrinkles but do not want to undergo surgery, you may be a good candidate for Botox. Since Botox does not require allergy tests like other injectables, as long as you’re in good health, you may benefit from this treatment.
While Botox is often associated with middle-aged and older men and women who are looking for a way to resolve their wrinkles, it may also be effective for younger patients who would like to stop wrinkles from arising in the first place. By receiving Botox earlier in your life, you may be able to stop your facial muscles from contracting when you make facial expressions like frowning, laughing, and squinting.
You should not receive Botox if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Dr. Schalit also discourages this treatment to patients who are living with neuromuscular diseases or taking Neomycin, Streptomycin, or other aminoglycoside medications.
