Who Can Benefit from Botox®?

Who Can Benefit from Botox®?

Are you tired of seeing more fine lines and wrinkles in the mirror and considering Botox® injections to help? As the most popular cosmetic injectable on the market with a proven safety track record, you’re considering one of the best ways to turn back the clock. 

But is Botox right for you? Angie Bjorgaard, RN, BSN, and the aesthetic team at Sublime Aesthetic Professionals are here to help you answer that question. At our East Grand Forks, Minnesota, office, we’re dedicated to helping our clients look and feel their best. 

At the same time, we know most aesthetic treatments aren’t a one-size-fits-all solution. We created this guide to help you better understand who benefits from Botox and whether it’s the right rejuvenation therapy for you.     

People with frown lines starting to appear

Have you noticed you’re starting to get permanent frown lines between your eyebrows? If so, you may benefit from Botox. The treatment works best when these lines start to appear, not once they’re deep-set. 

Most people begin to see these lines all the time in their late 30s and early 40s, which is when Botox will be effective. Once they’re set (usually in the 50s), these lines can’t typically be erased by Botox alone.  

People noticing lines lingering after facial expressions

The lines and wrinkles that appear when you make facial expressions are called dynamic rhytids. When you’re young and your skin is full of cell-repairing collagen, these wrinkles disappear after you stop making the expression. 

As you age and collagen production slows, the wrinkles become more and more permanent. Botox can help minimize the depth of these wrinkles and prevent them from becoming etched in your skin by reducing the muscle contractions. 

People who want better facial symmetry

Most of us aren’t perfectly symmetrical. If you’ve noticed one side of your mouth raises higher or one eyebrow sits higher than the other, Botox can help improve your facial symmetry by relaxing the muscles on the other side. 

Be sure you only seek treatment from a trained aesthetics specialist, like the team at Sublime Aesthetic Professionals, as results with Botox are dependent on the knowledge and skill of the person administering your injections. 

People with fine lines around the eyes or lips

Botox works well to smooth away the fine lines and creases around the eyes and lips. Botox relaxes the muscles that cause these lines to appear, smoothing your skin and rejuvenating your appearance.
