Who Is a Good Candidate for Botox?

As a rule, Botox treatment will work best for anybody experiencing aging around lines and wrinkles in the face and neck. The two best candidates are interested in Preventative and Reparative treatment.

Botox injections are used to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles found on the face and neck. Anyone who wants to soften and/or prevent excessive lines from deepening is a good candidate for Botox services. However, there are a few factors that contribute to a patient being one of the best candidates.

The 2 Best Candidates for Botox Treatment

Botox temporarily weakens the muscles in the treated area. As a result, the lines and wrinkles caused by the contraction of these muscles is reduced. The best cosmetic candidates can be broken down into two general categories:

  • Preventative
  • Reparative

Preventative Botox is typically used for patients in their 20s to 30s who want to prevent extensive lines from becoming engrained. Both men and women can benefit. Preventative care works to slow to the appearance of natural age lines and wrinkles on the face and neck.

Reparative Botox is essentially when Botox is used to reduce the appearance of already present and deepening age lines and wrinkles. Many patients do not consider Botox until they notice these signs of aging. Injections can help “turn back the clock” by smoothing or decreasing the depth of lines and wrinkles.

Added Botox Benefits

Not only can Botox safely and effectively reduce the appearance of aging, but some patients find they benefit from fewer headaches after the Botox sets in. In fact, the American Migraine Foundation endorses Botox as a potential aide in reducing headaches. It is also FDA approved to treat chronic migraine in adults age 18+.
