Why is an Oculoplastic Surgeon a Good Choice for Botox® Injections?
Who Makes a Good Candidate for Botox® Injections?
Most people can have Botox®, Dysport®, or Xeomin® injections. Neuromodulators have been used for over two decades without being linked to adverse health effects, and even allergic reactions to these compounds are rare. Generally, only those with bleeding disorders, compromised immune systems, multiple severe allergies, or other health conditions are advised to avoid these compounds. Botox® should also be avoided if you’re pregnant or nursing.
Neuromodulators work best as a standalone treatment on younger patients (those between the ages of 30-45). Mature patients usually benefit more from treatment plans that combine injectables with surgery, as only surgery can correct skin and muscle laxity. If you’re over 50, Dr. Amato may suggest that you also undergo brow lift and eyelid surgery to create more dramatic results. She uses endoscopic surgical methods wherever possible to minimize discomfort and shorten healing time.
