Am I a Good Candidate for BOTOX?
A lifetime of squinting, frowning, and even laughing can add up to numerous facial wrinkles. Heredity and skin tone are also factors. Many people to turn to BOTOX after friends ask whether they're tired or angry, even though they are rested and happy. Some patients come to Dr. Seaberg's office in Columbia to combine BOTOX injections with other cosmetic procedures, such as chemical peels or dermal fillers. BOTOX is an ideal remedy for:
- Frown lines
- Forehead furrows
- Skin bands on the neck
BOTOX doesn't fix all types of skin problems. It improves under-eye wrinkles, for example, but can't repair the damage caused by the sun. The amount of wrinkling and your skin's type and thickness will be evaluated by Dr. Seaberg before your procedure to gauge how the injections could work for you.
Your face includes 43 separate muscles. Dr. Seaberg knows with pinpoint certainty where to inject BOTOX so its effects target specific muscles. BOTOX is actually a toxin that temporarily weakens or paralyzes muscles, preventing them from contracting so wrinkles and furrows disappear. The number of injections depends on your facial features and the extent of your wrinkles, among other factors. Crow's-feet, for example, might require 2 to 3 injections, while furrows above your brow could take 5 or more. No anesthetic is necessary, and there is no downtime. Results usually appear after a few days, and the injections' full effects will take about a week to appear. Your smoother skin will last about 3 to 4 months before the results start to fade.
The First Step
A consultation with Dr. Seaberg is often more of a conversation, during which you can describe your goals for BOTOX injections and any other cosmetic procedures you might also be interested in, while the doctor will ask about your medical history. He will also examine your facial structure and skin to create a custom cosmetic plan just for you.
