Are You A Candidate For Botox Injections?

Botox injections in Chevy Chase MD offer a quick and effective way to minimize the look of deep wrinkles and fine lines on the face. This treatment is ideal for anyone who has become unhappy with the way that the natural aging process has affected their appearance.

While this treatment is desired by many, it is important to keep in mind that Botox injections are a temporary solution and if sustained results are desired, continued injections will be necessary. This, along with a number of other considerations, will be something to discuss with your surgeon.

The ideal candidate for Botox injections will be in overall good health, over the age of 18 and be searching for a nonsurgical method to address signs of aging in the face. Regardless of if you are searching for general maintenance or just want to smooth away wrinkles for an upcoming event, Botox injections offer a noninvasive and short-term method to help anyone achieve a more attractive and youthful appearance.

There are also individuals who may not be ideal candidates for Botox treatment. Anyone who has an allergy to the ingredients used in Botox should not undergo this treatment. Also, if any type of rash or infection is present at the planned site of injection, the procedure should be discontinued. Women who are pregnant or breast feeding should not get Botox and if you suffer from any type of nerve or muscle condition, such as myasthenia gravis or ALS, you should not get Botox injections.

Most doctors will perform Botox injections in their office. The appointment should last for less than 15 minutes for the entire process. In some cases, your doctor will use anesthetic or a cold pack in order to numb the areas that are going to be injected. Tiny needles will be used for injecting the Botox and in most cases the pain and discomfort will be minimal if any at all.

Once the procedure is complete, there is no recovery time required. You will be able to return to your normal, daily activities immediately. It is important that you do not rub the areas that were injected since it may result in the botulinum toxin migrating to other location on the face, which can result in temporary face dropping or weakness. You may notice slight bruising at the site of injection, but this should fade within a few days.
