When BOTOX® was first getting its start, it was primarily only used by the rich and famous. These days, however, everyone from celebrities to our next-door neighbors are choosing this popular treatment. It is so effective at helping people treat their dynamic wrinkles that more and more people use it every day. We are proud to offer the most widely used cosmetic treatment in the world at our center in Baton Rouge.
One of the best things about BOTOX® is that most people in Baton Rouge qualify as candidates for it. To determine if this treatment is right for you, we will first schedule a consultation with you and observe your overall health. You need to be free of serious illnesses that affect your muscular and nervous system. Your skin also needs to be in good condition in the area where the BOTOX® will be injected. We will ask you several questions about your health to make sure that you are a good candidate for this treatment. You need to be over 18 years old.
After asking you questions about your health, we need to make sure that you actually have dynamic wrinkles that can be treated with BOTOX®. While this may sound like an obvious statement, not everyone is aware of the fact that there are different types of wrinkles.
BOTOX® is specially designed to target dynamic wrinkles, which form over the years as we make facial expressions. Wrinkles such as crow’s feet, nasolabial folds and frown lines all become more noticeable when we smile, laugh, frown or cry. When we are younger, we produce enough collagen and elastin to allow our skin to bounce back once our faces return to a neutral position. With time, however, our skin loses this elasticity, and the wrinkles become etched into our skin.
BOTOX® works by relaxing key facial muscles, allowing your skin to relax. As a result, dynamic wrinkles are soon smoothed away until they disappear. Just a few days after you receive your injections, you will start to notice changes in your skin as the underlying muscles relax. Best of all, treatment is quick and easy. You can go right back to your daily routine as soon as you walk out of our office.
BOTOX® is one of the most simple and effective ways to get amazing results. If you are interested in this treatment, we can help you decide if it is the right course of action for you at Hanemann Plastic Surgery in Baton Rouge. Contact us today to book your consultation!
