Is BOTOX® Cosmetic Right For Me?

Since it’s FDA approval in 2002, BOTOX® Cosmetic has been safely administered to millions of patients. If you are a Phoenix resident and you want to restore your youthful appearance without undergoing invasive plastic surgery, Gawley Plastic Surgery may be able to help you with BOTOX® Cosmetic.

The main benefits of BOTOX®  Cosmetic are that it reduces and eliminates existing signs of facial aging while simultaneously preventing future wrinkles from occurring in the targeted treatment areas. These can include areas of the face including:

  • The forehead
  • Between the eyebrows and around the eyes
  • Around the mouth
  • Near the neck

Ideal candidates are generally healthy and between the ages of 18 and 65 years old.

Sometimes patients will have aesthetic goals that can be better achieved with a combination of non-surgical treatments or alternative procedures, and in some circumstances BOTOX® Cosmetic may not be a viable option.

BOTOX® Cosmetic might not be the best choice for you if:

  • You have unrealistic expectations
  • You have health issues or medical disorders that will directly affect your treatment
  • You are breast feeding, pregnant or expecting to become pregnant

To ensure your BOTOX® Cosmetic candidacy, our doctors will personally assess your physical needs and aesthetic goals at your consultation.
