Almost everyone has heard of Botox® and hundreds of thousands of people each year take advantage of the many benefits it has to offer. It’s been an FDA approved procedure for over a decade, and millions of treatments have been given proving it to be very effective for cosmetics, as well as medical purposes. However, there are a lot of people who gather information about Botox® and are still unsure if the treatments are right for them. If you’re interested in getting treatments, here are a few things to consider when deciding if it’s right for you.
Have an understanding of your expectations
Before you decide if Botox® is right for you, you need to set realistic goals so that you aren’t disappointed. There are some treatments such as facelifts that will be more effective for people with certain expectations, and there will also be milder treatments that will give the look of younger looking skin.
When you meet with Dr. Singer for your complimentary consultation, be sure that you have an idea of what you hope for, and we’ll let you know if Botox® can help you reach your full potentials or if another treatment might be better for you. In some cases, you won’t get the dramatic results you were hoping for, and it’s important to be prepared for that.
Understand what is motivating you
Some people have used Botox® to help reduce migraine pain while others want a more youthful appearance. Whatever your reasons are for getting the treatments, take the time to explore those, and they will help you gain a better idea of what you want your expectations to be. People from all walks of life have used these treatments to their advantage from celebrities to professionals to stay-at-home parents. And men and women alike have different reasons behind making the decision that it’s right for them.
Learn about the maintenance
Because Botox® is not a permanent solution, you’ll want to have an understanding of how much maintenance is required and how often. If you don’t want to keep up with it every six months to a year, you may want to consider a different option or talk to your doctor about finding a schedule that fits into your life. It should also give you a little more confidence to know that the treatments will fade because if you aren’t happy once you’ve tried it, you know that the look before the treatments will return.
