Am I fairly in good health?
Despite its minimally-invasive nature, a Botox injection is still a medical procedure. And like all medical procedures, some are good candidates while others may need to make certain health improvements and wait for a definite period of time before taking the plunge. Individuals who may be taking certain prescriptions or undergoing treatments may not be eligible for the wrinkle-busting injectable. The existence of neuromuscular disorders may also affect Botox outcomes. You may be advised to completely treat pre-existing conditions. Dr. Wallach will perform a thorough assessment to determine your current health status before Botox.
