BOTOX® treatments are very popular in the El Dorado Hills, CA area. You may be asking yourself, who is a good candidate for these treatments? Well, there are a few things to consider when determining a person’s candidacy.
First, a good candidate for these treatments should be physically healthy. Although BOTOX® is a non-surgical procedure, it is still a medical procedure that is altering the way one of your body’s systems functions. If you are not physically healthy, even a simple procedure may result in unwanted side effects.
BOTOX® works by altering the way your nervous system and the muscles in your face work. It works as a modulator for your nervous system. It causes the muscles in your face that lead to dynamic wrinkles to relax. So these muscles do not get the same signals from the nervous system that they did previously. If you have a problem with muscle weakness or if you have a neural disorder, such as multiple sclerosis, this treatment may not work for you.
It’s important to have a frank conversation with our provider in El Dorado Hills, CA prior to getting BOTOX® injections. Discuss your medical history with them, as well as any medications you have taken in the past. This includes talking about vitamins and herbal supplements that you are taking. All of these can have an impact on how well the treatment works, so it’s important to be honest. Our specialist is also going to be interested in any allergies that you might have. The reason for this is to rule out an allergic reaction to any of the ingredients that are in BOTOX®.
Finally, to be a good candidate for BOTOX® treatments at Northern California Wellness, it is important for you to be realistic. BOTOX® produces different results in different people. Some people have drastic results immediately and others have little improvement, so it’s important to discuss your situation and get realistic expectations from our expert prior to your treatments.
