Who makes a good BOTOX candidate?
BOTOX is a treatment that is best suited for individuals that are in good physical health and without neuromuscular diseases (like M.S. or Myasthenia Gravis). Women who are pregnant, nursing or under the age of 18 should also not seek out this treatment.
Some other factors that indicate this procedure should be avoided are:
- Weak muscles (target muscles)
- Skin issues (particularly around the area of injection)
- Facial scars
- Asymmetry of the face
- Dense facial skin
It is important to let your doctor know about all medications and supplements you are taking before proceeding with the treatment.
It should be noted that the improvement one experiences varies from person to person. Some may take to the treatment well while others will require another form of treatment.
